Hi!
If you were my patient, I would recommend IVF as your best bet for pregnancy after the procedure. There have been documented pregnancies following the procedure.
Good luck!

Reading the fine print carefully you will see that pregnancy is still possible in patients who have had this procedure. Unfortunately the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy( tubal pregnancy) are much higher as well which puts the woman at risk even more.
