In brief: Possible....
But not likely. The tubal ligation blocks your tubes so hopefully the egg and sperm don't meet.
The ablation attempts to destroy the lining of the uterus so your periods are lighter. We don't recommend pregnancy after an ablation because the risk of miscarriage is so high.

In brief: No, do not attempt
Endometrial ablation permanently destroys the lining of the uterus.
It is considered unsafe to get pregnant after this procedure. The risk of placenta previa, (low lying placenta), placenta acreta, (placenta that grows into or through the muscular layer of the uterus), preterm labor and preterm delivery are all increased in pregnancies after ablation. Do not attempt this!
