In brief: Won't affect weight

Endometrial ablation will not affect your weight.
It also does not affect your hormones.

In brief: No

An endometrial ablation "mechanically removes" the lining of the uterus (endometrium), but the ovaries which produce the hormones are untouched by this procedure.
Your weight is not related to your ablation.
