In brief: Low odds

The mthfr mutation is common and often not contributory to miscarriage.
A thermal ablation of the uterine cavity, on the other hand, destroys much of the uterine lining where pregnancy needs to implant and can create a thin uterine lining. A thin lining may not be sufficient for pregnancy implantation and maintenance.

In brief: Can't say

Can't say for sure, you'd need more specific testing of the uterine cavity, as well as more specifics on which mthfr mutation(s) you have.
Even then, the answer woud be only an educated guess. With information you provide i'm most concerned about the impact of the ablation.
