Hi Lily553,

I am not a doctor but I have learned quite a bit in 2 weeks.  I do not know all of the potential diagnostic equipment/techniques available to keep track of fetal/placental development and how the uteris wall is doing structurally without invasion, but I find it hard to believe that in 2010 more can not be done to monitor these situations.  There are two lives at risk here but I still hate to give up on a baby before we know 100% all that can be done.

Good luck and lets keep each other posted on our progress.     xx   AJ1961

Hey.. I haven't been on here in a while.  I was very upset to hear about your bleeding problems.  At last post you were 27 wks hoping to make 28 wks, you should be there now.  Would love to hear how it is going.  I was following you because of the similar situation I am in.  I am currently 26 weeks and haven't had the first problem.  I keep fearing the worse.  I am worried about placenta previa and accreta.  They haven't seen anything so far.  My high risk doc didn't want to see me for 10 weeks so I don't go back until August.   Please let me know how you are doing.

Hey there! I am 28 weeks and 1 day today! Fortunately no more bleeding, but Dr says to expect it spontaneously and try not to freak out (very difficult), just get back to the hospital and call him in route. So now we have an 80% of viable delivery with 66% of a healthy baby. The next big goal is 32 weeks, so hopefully we will make that without going back to the hospital. As for me, I am on bedrest for the duration of the pregnancy. My Perinantalogist is having me come in weekly now...why so long between visits for you? Is he merely consulting or is he delivering your baby as well? I hope you continue to have a good pregnancy, and keep me updated :-)

Hello All,
It's been awhile since my last post, but I'm happy to report that all is well.  I'll be 28 weeks tomorrow and my next Dr appt is next Fri and then my next ultrasound is 8/4.  Last ultrasound there were no placenta issues and I've been blessed so far w/no bleeding issues, etc. (knock on wood!).  

To KGBRN - take it easy and i'll be thinking of you and praying for you to make it your next goal of 32 weeks.  We're very close to each other in terms of due dates and I can't even imagine how hard it is to be on bedrest.  

Reading all the posts about women who's pregnancies weren't viable or are having issues reminds me that I shouldn't take anything for granted.  Although I wasn't expecting to get pregnant (and certainly wasn't trying!) I am very blessed and fortunate - but for those of you who are trying to conceive post ablation - please take all the risks into account.  Dr's have very, very little experience with this and I seem to be an exception to the rule, at least so far.  

Good luck to all and I'll keep you posted - please do the same.

- Vikki (vklefty)

KGBRN, I know bedrest has got to be tough!  I was surfing the web and most sites I found said at 28 weeks there is 90% survival rate.  I pray everything is going to be fine.  My specialist is (unfortunately) not delivering my baby, he is consulting.  The OB doc seems to still think the ablation is nothing to be concerned about.  He asked me last week if I wanted to change my mind about having a C-Section.  The specialist is the one that suggested a C-Section and is watching for placenta problems.  

VKLefty -- Glad to hear all is doing well with your pregnancy too.  You seem to be progressing just fine, probably like me praying for the best and expecting the worse.  Keep me posted!  I didn't realize there were two people on here that were just a week or two ahead of me.  I think all 3 of us are at the point where our babies will have a good chance of survival. Good Luck and Keop me posted.  My next appt is Thursday!!

I had an Ablation in 2006 and was told by my dr that I could have a baby. I had pulmonary embolisms in my lungs so I had to be put on coumadin and the coumadin caused me to bleed non stop for a year, thats why I needed the ablation.  I got the positive test result that I am pregnant June 29, 2010.  I have just recently moved to California and had to change Doctors.  I have a high risk pregnancy due to having severe asthma and being on coumadin for a blood deficiency.

I went and had my first ultrasound yesterday and she could see the baby sitting on the bottom of my uterus, but she strongly believes that nobody who has had a ablation can have a successful pregnancy and is saying that I am going to have to terminate my pregnancy.  I called my OBGYN in New Hampshire where I am from, who performed my Ablation and she told me not to worry, what was seen on the ultrasound is normal & I should probably find a new doctor.  I was so upset and now she has me all scared.  I had some blood work done yesterday to check my pregnancy hormone levels and I have to have them repeated tomorrow and if the levels have gone up that means I have a baby still growing inside of me.......if the levels are the same or go down, I will have to have the baby aborted.  

I am so sad and so scared, I want this baby so much.  It still feels like everything is ok.  I will know more tomorrow.

Hi all! Things are still going ok with the pregnancy, I am 29 weeks and 3 days :-) and have had no more bleeding since my last bout. However, I am positive for pertussis and mycoplasma pneumonia and feel like crap! This has been going on for almost 3 weeks and none of my non OB Dr's would address this until this week when I broke down and went to my pulmonologist. Thank god for her! I knew it was pertussis! At times I can not get any air into my lungs and it is very scary...at this point all I want is 1 week of feeling good and no worries. Back to the perinantologist in a few days, maybe he will have some answers for me...until then...chin up everyone!

Just an update.  I had my 3 hr glucose test on Friday and failed it.  So now I have gestational diabetes.  I started a diabetic diet today and Friday I will go have my bloodsugar tested to see if it can be controlled with diet or will I need insulin.  My feet have been swelling everyday and I am feeling dizzy.  Everything was going to well until now.  I see my high risk doc on Monday.  I am 29 weeks now.

Hi Lily,  I hope everything is still on track for you.  We had the genetic probability test come back negative so that was good new.  Now at 19wks everything is good at this point.  Going for another ultrasound on the 29th to look for baby development and accreta.  Will keep you posted.    aj1961

This board I found by accident just by searching the web. Last year in April 2009 I had to have a Thermachoice endometrial ablation due to heavy bleeding and low iron. I was 47 at the time and I was single. It was either that or a hysterectomy. I chose to keep my uterus because it was my gift from God, as I told my doctor it may not work but it's mine, God said so. This past year has been a rather strange one. My periods did get lighter, I still have them, but there are some months I get all the symptoms but no bleeding. Some months the bleeding is heavier. I met my now husband exactly 3 weeks after my thermal ablation and he has never had a child of his own. My regrets are many and my age isn't helping matters. I was told by my gyn to not get pregnant. Well I've used my age as a birth control,  meaning I have hopes just like anyone other woman out there that God would implant a healthy baby in my uterus and make a daddy out of my husband. It seems money can buy everything including happiness (especially if you want a child at my age, 48) I had my tubes tied in 96 and a tubal reversal in 2004. I got pregnant within 4 months of my reversal with twins but lost them at 8 weeks. I have not had a positive pregnancy test since which meant to me that God was finished with me and I opted for the ablation to stop the heavy bleeding. I couldn't even go to work the bleeding was so heavy. None of that matters now, it is a part of my past. As I near 50 I can't help but feel an emptiness inside me that I am supposed to have one more child, not just for my husband but because I love being a mother so much. I've looked into adoption, egg donor, surrogancy, and prayer. None of the 3 seem to be an option because in the end, it's all about money. I could pay a surrogate to carry me a child but who has that kind of money? I could use a donor egg and a surro but thats even more money and I'm sure my eggs are dust. I've read all your wonderful stories but I have not found any of you to be close to the age I am. Which means that my baby making days are over unless I win the lotto or become rich and famous. I am so happy for those of you that were able to get pregnant after either of these procedures and now have a healthy baby, and my heart goes out to those of you that lost your angels due to uterine problems, ie; scaring, premature death. I believe God has a reason for everything and I've given up on my dreams of conceiving myself, since my eggs are so old. Every time I see a baby, I cry. My grands have been a blessing but they are my grands, my daughers children, not mine. As much as I love them (and that's more than words could describe) I still want one more baby and I feel my life will be complete and my purpose for being here will be answered. I was born to be a mother. The only reason I had my tubes tied in the first place was, I went through a divorce and I had 2 children to raise alone and I got pregnant so very easily, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to support another. Getting pregnant was just to easy. Now it's not an option. God bless all you wonderful mothers and mothers to be. I pray that your heart be filled to overflowing, with love. There is a reason you got pregnant and I am positive that God had everything to with it. With him everything is possible! If only he would send me money to have my own child. It's not like I'm asking him for twins or more, just one God, one baby. My motherly instincts are more than I can handle and I seem to try to mother everyone elses children, you know the ones that the parents just turn loose outside and they seem to be drawn to me. I feel like the whole neighborhoods mom away from their own home. I think I will die with the ache in my heart of never being able to adopt or carry my last blessing. Lord rain pennies on my head so I can afford anything to have one last chance. Lord bless these women on here, so many stories, so many second chances for them. Lay your hand on their wombs and make them fertile and healthy. Give them a miracle. And God.......thank you for all the children I did not give birth to but they still come to me as a second mother. Maybe that's all in your plans. I may not like the plans, but it's more than some women will ever get. I will continue to watch this board and see how things turn out for each of you. I am praying for all of you. In doing so, I find my own peace.

I'm now 30w 5d and had to go to the Dr unexpectedly this week due to cramping and contractions.  My OB hooked me up to the monitor for a non-stress test and found I was having contractions but they weren't too severe.  I don't recall feeling as strong of BraxHics in my last 2 pregnancies - so i was a little concerned.  She also did a fetal fibronectin test (which I had never heard of) and it came back negative - which is good.  (It's a test that can determine if you're at a high risk of pre-term labor.)  SO, for now, she just said try and take it easy (with 2 step kids and 2 of my own at home - very doubtful!)  Anyway, less than a week until my next ultrasound and am hoping all is still well with the placenta placement.  Until then... good luck to all!  - Vikki

Hi, i read your post. I had a novasure endometrial ablation a couple of months ago. I dont bleed at all...nothing. The day of the surgery..no bleeding also.  I am reading this site bcuz my new husband is talking about having a baby with me. I am 47. I never wanted kids...ever.
I have been reading and it seems that ablations do not remove 100 percent of the lining. So, if you dont have tubal scarring and an egg gets to the uterus, and there is a soft spot (healthy cells) then ther is a chance for pregnancy. Docs say dont do it...since there are risks..like the placenta growing into the uterine muscle wall.  Pregancy possiblity is much more possible for a woman who has a "regular" period. That means that there is regeneration of the endometrium, that has created healthy cells that are able to shed and cause a periodl. I think what i learned is that..........to get pregnant you have to have a 'REGULAR OCCURING PERIOD" / BLEED. Lori

33 weeks! Had another Dr appt today with another biophysical profile. Baby is 4lbs 3oz. and all other measurements look good. I have to start weekly non stress tests and have an amnio scheduled for Sept.14th. If her lungs are developed we will have a c-section/hysterectomy on Sept.16th at noon. All in all a good appt today!

I just thought I'd check into the site to see how everyone is... and Im so excited for you!  A Girl!  Try not to worry about the 2 extra sacs in the uterus... god has been with you- and will continue to be!  If you remember, I had an ablation 5 years ago, got pregnant in april, had a missed miscarriage at 10 weeks and during the dc&e the doctor punctured my uterus.  After the laperoscopy, he gauranteed me all was fine, and my periods would return and we could begin to try again in sept.  Well, as of today, still no period and hormonally i am messed up.  Night sweats, crying... just a mess. I go back to md on aug 26 to determine if estrogen is needed...?
Anyway, I am so happy to hear that the baby is doing well and so are you!  You went back to work, right? How is that working out with the pregnancy?

i'm 7 months post-novasure uterine ablation and had been on birth-control pills, but just found out that i am 8 weeks pregnant!  i'm so confused about what to do.  we have 3 other children who i do not want to leave mother-less - nor could i handle a late-term miscarriage.  i had SEVERAL early-term ones before any of my children - it's heart-breaking.  other medical sites are using this insane statistic of only "0.7% of women who've had this procedure will become pregnant".  I'm not finding that to be true after finding this forum.  any information that anyone is willing to share with me is greatly appreciated.
Blank
1250032_tn?1291145711
Hi,

The 0.7% is correct. There are many types of ablation. I also had novasure 3 years ago, and am currently 34 weeks pregnant. It has not been fun. I have a placenta previa and accreta and have been bleeding on and off since june and been on bedrest. The decision has to be your own, all I can tell you is that you need a perinatalogist that is informed and educated (in my opinion). This is not for a regular OB/GYN to handle. I hope you can come to an informed and educated decision that will be the best and safest for you.
Good luck!

Im not sure if its just a glimmer of hope, but lately i have been feeling exhausted. not sleeping well, weird foods im eating, tired legs...anyways i took a(2nd) prego test, not really knowing what to expect. It was invalid....no line a faint "control" line but now im wondering why and how often have pregnant women get a negative test.
                        Also last time i was intimate i had bright red blood, no pain, and nothing prior or after. has anyone had similiar experiences with any of this? could it really be phsycological? me just hoping to mother a child 1 last time? ugh the frustration and lack of resources has me frustrated, no one knows what to expect, every woman varies. these are my responses. anyways something is happening to me and if i still feel like this in a few wks, i will go see my family doctor.
       Any advice, comments, or suggestions r welcomed and thank you for ur time.

Doing pretty good actually. I am bleeding again which is a bummer, but I am at home for the time being continuing with bed rest. If the bleeding changes it is back to the hospital I go. The non stress test was good, and my internal exam revealed some dark blood and a closed cervix, so I am happy with that. I am 34 weeks and scheduled my c-section/hysterectomy for sept 16th. My biggest concern now is not bleeding to death at delivery. I can't believe I have made it this far!

I'm just curious as to if any of you had bleeding before you became pregnant? I had novasure 3 years ago. I still have no bleeding every once in a blue moon there will be just a dab but then it's gone. I'm not really trying to get pregnant but I'm also not trying to prevent it either. Just thought I would ask.

So im wondering, how did all u successful pregnancies find out u were pregnant? If ur not getting a monthly period? I feel so confused, my fiance has me taking hpt tests almost wkly becuz of all my symptoms. I truly do feel pregnant, but i dont know if im hoping so badly that now its all in my head.
                               Could all the physical symptoms i feel really happen due to my mind being so hopeful? I have benn pregnant twice before, and also realize each pregnancy is different. I just wanna know the truth becuz i want to be able to properly care for myself and my baby, if i am.
                                All of my symptoms include, constant nausea, for about 2mths now, daily, eew! In my entire life i never have been able to eat any kind of spicy foods, and lately i cant seem to get enuff jalepeno peppers(wth?). My mother even commented on i must be pregnant. My hips hurt, i have been crampy as heck. I have been having trouble sleeping through the night. I dont know what else to do except take care of myself the best i can and wait for some kind of outcome. Have any of u had several negative tests to find out later u are indeed pregnant? If so how long did it take for u to know u were pregnant? how? Did u take a otc urine test? or was ur pregnancy confirmed by ur doctor?

I found out at 12 weeks with a generic pregnancy test from wal mart, which was confirmed by a stat serum HCG test and sonogram. I was having a period since my ablation and I was told I was going through menopause...my suggestion is if you think you are pregnant make an appointment with a physician!

My oldest is 23! I am happy now that I am almost 36 weeks, but this has been a horrific pregnancy and wouldn't recommend any woman go through this voluntarily. We also did everything with the exception of a hysterectomy to prevent pregnancy and still got pregnant, and like you, termination wasn't an option for me. With all of the complications we have had, I feel we are truly blessed by God in him giving us this miracle. For both the baby and I to have made it this far is amazing. Good luck to you and your family

Hello Ladies. I've been doing research for about a year and have mixed feelings about all of this. I had the novasure procedure done w/ the understanding that I could become pregnant later. In fact, I was told to stay on birth control b/c it wasn't a form a birth control. I was naive and didn't think to question my doctor b/c he made it seem like a simple procedure. Luckily, he is not practicing anymore. However, I am eager to have another baby.
From some of the research, I have found that there are meds to help rebuild the uterine lining and help women get regular periods done. I spoke to my ob/gyn and he is going to send me to a specialist to get things started. I was wondering if any of you have gone through the treatment to rebuild your lining and how the pregnancies were/are?

Any information would be great. I want a healthy baby.

I'm speechless & in tears right now.  I'm glad I ran across this group.  I had an ablation done almost 2 years ago and had my tubes ties 5 years ago after my last child.  I have 4, my oldest is 18 and the youngest is 5.  I've been having MANY signs of pregnancy & kept thinking it can't be possible...right?  I took a hpt and it's inconclusive (the results r not clear...go figure).  I just KNEW I was done with having kids.  After reading all the post, it's obviously possible.  My husband will be elated...I just don't know how I even feel about this...happy, sad, shocked, numb and definitely scared...pick one...or choose them all.

KGBRN -- OK.. we need another update from you.  I am looking at your last post on Aug 27th and you were 36 weeks.  You should be around 39 weeks today.  I am hoping you have delivered a healthy baby.  Please let us know how you are doing!  I am thinking about you!!

VKLEFTY - It has really been a while since we heard from you.  At last post you were 30 weeks and should be around 37/38 now.  I hope you are doing well.  I am worried because you last post you were having contractions.  Please keep us updated!!

I am really nervous.  You two were the only two that were further along in your pregnancy and I really want to know how it is going.  I am scheduled to deliver in 20 days at 39 weeks by c-section.  I am still going twice a week for stress tests and all is well.  I have not had anymore bed rest or blood pressure problems.  I feel great!

Wow,
I am crying reading all your posts! This is just amazing to me. I have an arterial venous malformation in my uterus. After my four year old daughter was born they FINALLY found it (after they near killed me) and they embolized it. Two years later I had the novasure procedure. In my mind I was done having children, I love the two I have but as a single parent never saw myself raising another one. I didn't think I had it in me. Well, I met an amazing man, we are getting married. He has a child and I have my two. He wants another...I told him all about my past problems and the risks, we are in the process of looking for a GOOD Dr that we can trust and also will be able to help us in having another child. I have had my period since I had the procedure, it is on time every month and the same it always was. I so badly would like to give him a baby girl. After reading this I have SO MUCH hope ...ugghhh wiping my tears!! Thank you so much ladies for sharing your stories. Miracles do happen!!!

Ok, i dont know if i should be excited or not...I had the novasure done back in January and hadnt really bled at all since. Then the other night i noticed a little brown discharge, hmm i said and just kept a eye on it.
Well last night at 2 am i woke with extreme cramps that i havent felt since i last had a period. I used to get relief from having sex and figured why not give it a try right? well i did and cramps were gone but immediately after there was alot of bright red blood. When I used the restroom it was dripping enough that i felt that i needed a sanitary napkin.
So now im wondering a few things...was the novasure a temperary fix for me? Am i going to start getting regular periods now? Again with pain and even possibly heavy bleeding? Are my chances to conceive greater now? Or should they be more regular?

Any questions i've had after the novasure procedure that i brought to my Dr.s attention was basically i dont know. He always says result are different for every woman. Great...nice and vague. Funny how informative they seemed to be when convincing me novasure was the right choice for me. So now i have no one to answer my questions , besides you girls and your experiences.

I have been doing a lot of research and reading many, many forums about getting pregnant after this procedure. I'd have to say that this one is the best so far, thank you guys so much for sharing all of your information.

One procedure I've been reading about for helping repair a scared uterus is the treatment for Ashermans syndrome. I found a great site for helping the insurance pay for it (b/c many doctors bill my issue as infertility, which it isn't) and it walked me through what the procedure was. So far, it seems to be one of the most effective treatments prior to getting pregnant. My doctor also said that a specialist could put me on meds to help start my period again. I have a period, and have had one since I had the procedure, but in the past few months, it has started to get lighter. I had the procedure done over 2 years ago.

I am 31 years old and eager to have another baby. I wish my doctor had bee as eager to explain the severity of this procedure as he was just to perform it. He made it seem like it was as simple and no big deal.....it is far from simple and a huge deal.

Has anyone else heard anything about treatments to help? Is there anything I can do at home help with healing my uterus?

Thanks. Again, thank you guys for post everything that you do.

Hello All! Sorry it has been so long, on September 8th, I went into labor and started vaginally bleeding again. Hubby and I headed for the hospital once again thinking I would have to stay this time until baby was born. Dr decided I needed to have this baby now and took me for an emergency C-section and partial hysterectomy, however, I lost a lot of blood and could not stop my bleeding so I ended up with a total hysterectomy and several units if blood and plasma along with general anesthesia during the 2 hour surgery/delivery. The good news is we had a 5lb 9oz baby girl who is just perfect! Good luck to those of you who are still pregnant, please take control of your own health. I had some very bad experiences in the hospital, and had I not known what I do, it could have been detrimental.

I am very happy that I have com across this forum, I am 28 years old and have three very healthy boys 9, 8, 4 and I have longed to try once more, after 4 years my husband told me last night that he would love to have another baby! I was excited that he actually said that and I'm not the only one that wants this!  4 years ago going through post pardom depression I had a tubal, regret it everyday now, 2 years ago I had a ablation done due to heavy periods, also my doctor said that is would just slow the chances or having a baby but never said it would never happen, I have not bleed at all not even spotting, I would like to hear what and where we should start with this process! Thanks in advance

Momof3boys257, this forum is not for women who had ablations and wanted to get pregnant, rather, it is for women who have had ablations and subsequently gotten pregnant, and are having difficult, terrifying, and horrific pregnancies because of it. Do your research, this is not something you should actively pursue.

I'm almost 30 yrs old, and I had an endometrial ablation in March, 2008.  I've had 5 children - all delivered by c-sections - one of the reasons I had that procedure done in the first place.  I've been having regular "periods" for the past several months.  Last month's, however, was VERY short & spotty.  Now I'm about 2 weeks late, and have started having an unusual amount of clear, thin discharge.  (Too much info, I know)  But here's the kicker:  my husband had a vasectomy 2 years ago as well, but never actually went back in to have a sperm count done.  Now I KNOW we're fertile - I've got 5 beautiful babies to attest to that.  I'm wondering if this is all in my head, or if I actually COULD possibly be pregnant again.  I've had 2 pregnancies before where hpt's didn't work.  With my 4th, I ended up taking 4 hpt's and all of them were negative.  Do I sound crazy, or has anyone had a similar experience?

I was told two years ago after having my tubes tied and an ablation done due to excessive bleeding that I would have no chance of getting pregnant ever again. Well I got pregnant. Was for 4 weeks and it ended in a miscarriage last monday. I know 6 people personally that this has happened to. I just don't see why with all the stuff the doctors told me about there being no chance at all I still got pregnant after getting both procedures done.

I will keep you and baby in my prayers. I found that being prepared (both my perinatalogist and myself) for the worse case scenario was the best thing we could have done. I was type and cross matched for 4 units of blood in case of the need for a transfusion, which I ended up needing, we had a great anesthesia staff on my case, the OR was prepped for a c-section AND hysterectomy so there wouldn't be mass confusion with staff  running around to get the right equipment, Neonatalogy was there to respond to the baby. It was not an ideal situation, but it saved our lives. I had to be put to sleep for delivery and surgery and my husband wasn't able to be in the room, but again, it saved our lives. If I had to suggest anything to you it would be to be over prepared. So good luck! Keep us posted!

Hi there. I just found out that I'm 7 weeks prego after having EA!!!! I'm sure a lot of you know the emotions that come with this type of surprise! I am 33 and have 3 great kids (10, 7, 3). Termination is not an option unless this becomes fatal for me (I won't leave my other children motherless). I've done as much research online as I possibly can, but there isn't much to be found. However, all your posts give me hope that a healthy baby is possible.

For all you ladies who have had healthy babies at what week did you start to have complications?

Did you all get mri's to determine how the placenta was attached?

If you were put on bed rest, to what degree? Never got out of bed, out just to pee?

I know all this is early cause I'm still at risk for a miscarriage, but I find it helpful to be prepared. If there are any others out there who have just found out or are around the same week as me I'd love to keep in touch as I have no plans on telling family due to the high risk nature.

Looking forward to hearing from ya'll.

I am 42 and gave birth this Aug 2nd to a VERY healthy baby boy post ablation. I had the ablation in March of 2009 and became pregnant in November 2009. I have no kids and was sure I didnt want one. But, life happens and I am very blessed to be in a position to take care of him at this point in my life. I had ZERO complications during my pregnancy. I was unsuccesful in trying to be induced at 39 weeks. After 38 hours of trying, I delivered him via C-section. My cervix had scar tissue from the ablation and would not dialate past a 5. I begged them to do C-section as I was worried about the baby. He weighed 8.4 and 22 inches long. He is 9 weeks old already and is so healthy and strong.
I did have numerous ultrasounds by a specialist in OB ultrasound, including the 4D imagining. Did not have to have an MRI. Only self-induced bedrest at the end due to heat (I live in AZ) and some swealing. Good luck to you and let me know if you need more info

Thanks for the info. it's very encouraging. Just out of curiosity, what part of AZ? We moved from there about 5 years ago. We had our second child at Bannar Desert. He was a preemie and we miss going in there with him to see the nurses and Drs.

I'm glad to hear about your bundle of joy. Having a healthy baby is a huge blessing.

There's little to nothing you can do. Ablation destroys the lining of the uterus and makes it to where your body is not meant to carry a child. There are many risks if you do attempt to get pregnant, which can result in miscarriage, hemorrhaging, and can also cause death to both you and the child. If you're set on having another baby, look into adoption or a surrogate mother.

Avatar_n_tn
I had an ablation over 4 years ago and had a tubal ligation years earlier in my early 20's. Same story as others, divorced remarried we wanted a child of our own. Given no hope by everyone. Spent 3 wasted years with one REI Dr. here in Tucson told surrogacy was our only hope. I finally decided to give the only other REI Dr.in town a try even though he has a rep. for bad bed side manner. Didn't care at this point, just wanted someone who could think outside the box and was good. Well, only 4 months with him and I'm having normal periods and cycles and on our way to IVF by end of year. He has treated many women like us with good success rates and normal uncomplicated births because he is good and makes sure the endometrium is optimal before implantation. He first did a hysteroscopy on me removed a lot of scarring and the right combination of hormones to help build the lining up. I then did have to have another hysteroscopy to remove some small remaining scarring and then more hormones. Periods are doing much better, but he will not rush and implant at this time because that is where some of these women run into very hard complicated pregnancies and births. I have one finally hysteroscopy at end of October to "spruce" things up in there with then a massive amount of hormones to have optimal conditions for implantation in Nov. Even with as well as things are progressing for us at this moment, I am thankful that even after this next procedure if he fills that it's still not right he will wait until it is. I have met with some of his other patients who have been through this, some are just finishing up, others are having uncomplicated pregnancies and others already have babies. There is not a lot of good education out there about our type of situation just a lot of horror stories and uneducated information with few people sharing the good. There is also a fantastic REI in Phoenix with great success treating this the same way. I just didn't want to drive because I'm in almost every week for ultrasounds and such. It just wasn't appealing to drive almost 2 hours every week. If you're really willing to put in the time, effort and patience there is REAL HOPE out there. My OB/GYN who did my ablation did explain very clearly the risks, she is also still my OB/GYN and praises my REI Dr.'s work for women like us and supports our decision's and is looking forward to delivering our new baby, she already has a set of twins on their way in her care from him with same situation. Don't buy into all the negativity and crap. It frustrates me to hear all the whining about this procedure. We are women We need to take control of our bodies and healthcare. Educate ourselves and know all the risks. I knew what the risks were with my ablation, I was willing to take them at the time. I am now having to take the time and patience to reverse the effects of my decision. But I guess the point to my long winded comment is that there is an answer and it is fixable. It's just scarring of the uterus that needs to be removed and helped to regenerate.

I started having bleeding at 8 weeks (didn't know I was pregnant at that point).  Bleeding continued throughout the pregnancy. I was put on light duty at work from the point of finding out I was pregnant (12 weeks) then modified bedrest at 25 weeks then complete bedrest from 33 weeks. I delivered at 36 weeks by c-section with total hysterectomy and bilateral oophorectomy due to more bleeding and starting into labor and an accreta. Good luck to you!

I'm sorry KGBRN that you took that as a direct attack on you. That was not intended that way at all or even towards you in anyway. I had read all your posts much earlier and followed them. Again sorry you felt that this was directed at anyone person who was in your situation. But it was more pointed at Clysta, claiming there is no hope and also a few others that were posted randomly on here ( not regulars) about not being informed properly about their procedures.Read what you are signing, ask questions, take control of your own health was all I was saying. It is unfortunate that there are so many practioners that are uneducated themselves and this leads to many woman being very misinformed  Because of what you had and are going through now is why my REI Dr. does things a bit differently to help minimize what happened with you and others. And I AM very happy for that, Thank you. So please do not ever personally attack me again as I did not do this to you. People also need to share the positive stories not just the negative. What you have been going through is very difficult and a risk every one of us takes when we chose to embark on this and so we may not be stepping into your shoes but we are walking the same rocky path as you. After everything you went through, you now have a beautiful life that you would still be willing to give your life for. That is the positive.

I found this website by accident and I am glad I have.  It has given me alot of information that I was never able to find before.  I am 41 and I had  a tubal in Dec. 2001 and had a thermal ablation and D &C for heavy bleeding done in May 2004.  I was a single mother and was determined never to do this again on my own.  A decision I regret. I got married in August of 2007 and me and my husband had talked about having a baby and I had explained to him the procedures I had done.  With that being said, I went to see a fertility specialist in June of 2008 and she did an ultrasound and determined that there was no uterus lining, which I pretty much knew, so I really did not have my hopes up.   But, I was still having periods every month.  No explanation as to why, since the doctor who performed the ablation said I would have not have anymore.  The past few days, my breast have been really sore, more so than the usual before my period.  The last time they hurt like this was when I was pregnant 8 1/2 years ago.  I am due to have a partial hysterectomy next week on Nov. 4th.  I feel stupid thinking that I could be pregnant as this symptom to me would be way to early as I just had my period on Oct. 12.  It wouldn't be a bad thing in fact, but I just feel silly thinking it.  Would you all just wait it out until you go for your pre-op visit with the doctor or would you buy a pregnancy test?

I went to the dr on tuesday and he performed an ultrasound that showed in two differant places where i measured at 6.1 and 7. He also said that it seemed like i had all of my lining still intact. he was surprised because of the fact that i had an ablation 3 years ago. He perscribed hormones and feels like i can carry a baby, although he said it is not very commen that the procedure did not work so well for me. Before anyone decideds to get pregnant please consult your dr first. Good luck to all

Hi all, I am 28 and I had an ablation completed in July 2010, due to continuous spotting and random lengthly periods.  After having it completed I am still have periods...not continuous thank God.... but none the less still having them.  Also my cramping and PMS actually seems to be worse to me.  I realize this has nothing to do with get pregnant, but I need some guidance on whether or not I should be making another appointment with my DR.  This was one of the few good forums I could find that had multiple people that have had the procedure completed.  I can't remember which method mine was called but it was done with heated water...??  Any advice from anyone would be really appreciated!

After reading all of the horror and success stories, and doing a lot of research, I decided to go to a fertility doctor to see about getting pregnant. He performed and ultrasound and an HSG to see how my lining looked. He was able to show me where my lining was healthy and the HSG showed that the tubes were clear and where there was scaring. He has stated that he could go in a remove the scars and put me on hormones to further build my lining so that I can carry a baby without major issue.

After having my EO, I still had periods every month. They were lighter, but still lasted a few days.

If trying to get pregnant after an EO, I recommend going to see a fertility specialist first. They can explain the risk, and what your chances of having a safe and successful pregnancy are. After reading all the stories, I wouldn't recommend trying without speaking to someone first.

I have been on this site reading posts since I found out in August that I was pregnant after having a ablation in 2003. We were not trying, it just happened. This site kept me positive and informed of risks. However, I lost my baby boy Liam this week at 18 weeks and was told it was most likely due to the ablation. I was also told by the drs I will most likely never be able to carry a healthy baby to term. I am 39 yrs old, have two children with another man. I wanted so badly so have this baby with my partner of 5 years. Still knowing this risks, I so badly want another baby.
I know miracles can happen no matter what drs say and was wondering if anyone has had a successful pregnancy after a miscarriage from ablation.

Hi Lily,

I have not been on here in a while, I am very happy that things are going well for you and the little one.  My wife is now at 34 weeks and so far everything is looking good.  At 33 weeks the baby was estimated to be 4 1/2 lbs.  She had an MRI last tuesday (Nov 2) no results until thursday this week but it looks like the docs will do a c-section early December in the 37th week.

I wish I had found this site sooner.  I had ablation done in 2001.  Last Dec. I found out I was eight weeks pregnant.  I had always had a light period every four weeks, but had been told I shouldn't get pregnant.  My husband at the time of the ablation was sterilized so no worries.  However we divorced and I met someone else.  My OB was the doc who did the ablation but he did not explain any risks.  I had some spotting in the beginning, then at 18 weeks, I had a gush of fluid which I believed was amniotic fluid.  I went to the ER and they said it was a weak bladder as I was 38 and had four children.  They did an ultrasound and I had 17cm of fluid.  The next day was my check up with my OB.  He assured me everything was fine and to continue my regular activities.  In two weeks I went for my 20 week ultrasound and had only 9 cm of fluid.  they couldn't get good pictures and so refered me for a level 2 ultrasound, again checked the fluid and said it was not amniotic fluid and I could continue normal activities.  I went work the next day and felt my baby move for the last time.  On Sunday morning I was spotting and my dr told me I could go to the hospital for an ultrasound to reassure myself.  Well you guessed it.  There was no heartbeat.  They induced me and at 8:37 that evening, April 11, 2010, my son, Chance Michael Savage was delivered.  He weighed 14 oz and was 11 in long.  I didn't have the courage to hold him and I deeply regret that now.  When I asked my OB about trying again, he told me to pray about it!!!  After finding this site, I am so angry at him for not telling me the risks involved.  It hurts so much to not have that baby with me and to know I could have been better informed and that may have prevented my loss.  I am glad and happy for those of you who made it through and are holding your babies today. Sorry so long needed to share. Thanks for listening

Please tell me that they took you off of Coumadin and put you on Heparin or Lovenox injections.

Hi all. 40 yrs old, Post ablation 6yrs (almost to the date of conception) and am now 15wks pregnant. Found out at 5wks.
After ablation I started my period 6 months later and had a monthly flow since, like clock work every 31-33 days.
Recent NT testing of baby is within normal range. Blood pressure is fine but my sugar is through the roof and they have me on insulin.
I have had 4 children prior to this one post ablation pregnancy, and the only significate difference I see this far (and all pregnancies are different), is the round ligament pain. I started feeling the painful stretching at about 10wks. And boy is it bad! Its on both sides and it paralyzes me with the pain and at times i swear it seems as if i can feel my whole uterus tighten up (like a charlie horse) and then when i ever so difficultly get to lay on my left side, i believe i feel my whole utterus shift, rest and then loosen up! Unlike what internet and forums say about this happening upon sudden movement, i feel an ache coming on as I am sitting or laying still and there is no preventative "position" or heating pad that helps my situation.
Anyway, prior to my pregnancy, i did researh on the topic of "can you get pregnant post ablation" and this forum always came up. I would read the posts and be hopeful yet fearful.... Now it is my time to share "my story" for someone who was once in my shoes.  
Hope this has been of some help to someone out there.
Best of luck to all, whatever your situation is that brought you to this page. I will continue to post throughout my pregnancy.

Hi, i found it interesting reading about your situation,i'm 40 next july and have been thinking about getting pregnant.
Like yourself was in a marriage for 16 years and have been divorced now for 2 and half years and met a fabulous guy who i have known for 20 years he is a friend of the families and things are great between us, he has a daughter from previous relationship and she is 6 but lives with her mother but visits us every week. My boys are 10 and 8 and live with me.My ablation was in 2003 and it was explained to me that the chances of me getting pregnant was very unlikely, but at this time it didnt bother me as i was happily married then!!! But things change and you move on.
We still keep researching and thinking about all the pro's and cons but we haven't made a deffinate decision yet. I have been to my doctor twice to discuss it with her and she has been supportive as she has worked in hospitals and her knowledge is good.
Good luck and keep in touch xxx

Thanks for the reply. I wish you the best of luck and am so glad you have a supportive doctor, stick with her. When i walked into my dr pregnant, they were shocked amazed yet not so happy. I have always loved my dr's point blank explanations of things but this time, it all seemed negative. There are great risks as I am sure you are aware of but with some hope faith and belief... all things are possible.  We're trucking along now at 18wks and as of Thanksgiving Day, I catch my baby wiggling at least once or twice a day now, no distinctive kicks yet... but baby is definitely moving around. Next dr appt Dec 10th... boy or girl?? We'll see. Healthy matters. Girl would be nice but the way things are goin and how I am expanding in front... my guess is a boy... I'll keep ya posted!!

Help!  I'm 35 and pregnant after a tubal ligation and endo ablation.  I had my tubes cut and cauterized in 2002 and had endo albation Dec. of 2007.  It's now Dec. 2, 2010, and I found out today that I'm 3 weeks pregnant.  They did an ultrasound, and my ovaries look good, and the sack looks like it's implanted inside the upper left wall of my uterus.  They told me, however, that it's still too early to rule out a tubal pregnancy.  If it's not a tubal pregnancy, it's still high risk because of the endo ablation I had done 3 years ago.

They took blood work today and will call me tomorrow.  They're already working on referring me to high risk ob doctors.

Has anyone been through this before?

Had an US today. Baby looks good but I have a complete placenta previa. I know all the risks involved with that alone but I have so many questions that I didn't think to ask my OB. I'm hoping you can help me. If I'm high risk for a preterm and in all my previous I've delivered FAST (26 min. from start to finish with my last) should I call an ambulance if I go into labor? Will I know if my water breaks if the placenta is covering my cervix? I've already experienced some cramping at 15 weeks, is this indicative of placenta previa?

Please forgive my negativity but I need to vent. I portray that everything is fine to my friends but I'm full of doubt. I REALLY didn't want anymore children because I get so sick. Currently I'm on daily IV fluids and a Zofran pump. I had to have a PICC line put into my arm to receive these. At first the PICC line was in too far and I was having heart palpitations. This week I'm having cramping. And now the previa. I know this is only the beginning and I still have a long road. I go in on the 23rd to see if I also have an acreta. And to top it all off (this is the very selfish part) I'm having a boy. I so desperately wanted to have a girl! I'm finding it hard to see the hope in this pregnancy when things are so against me.  Are these normal high stress pregnancy feelings or am I just being selfish? Is it wrong to be prepared for the worst and try to hope for the best?

I have no family around to help me out and my husband travels. He is usually gone 5 days a week. He has no vacation/sick time built up and we couldn't afford to go without pay. What would you all do to plan for help with kids?

Thanks so much.

I have been to an REI in phoenix and I have a HSG scheduled in January. I wanted to know which REI in Phoenix has such a wonderful reputation.

It has been 4years since my hydrotherm ablation. I am married now and my husband desperately wants a child. I want to take every precaution possible but I do believe that patience, education and informed doctors make a huge difference.

It's been a long time since I've posted!  All is well with me.  My experience was truely a miracle to say the least.  After having ablation over 2 1/2 yrs ago I ended up having a totally normal pregnancy and delivered a 8 lb 8 oz baby boy (Brady Scott) at 38 weeks.  I ended up having a c-section but other than that everything was great.

I held my breath every day of my pregnancy, but as it turned out everything turned out fine.

Best of luck to everyone.

Hello Everyone:
I am new to this forum. Here is a little of my history....1996 stillbirth Trisomy 13, 1999 Gabrielle 8lbs6oz, 2002 Joey 6lbs 14oz., 2004 Bella 6lbs 14 oz. Two outta the 3 I was on birth control. Bella I ended up on bed rest with a placental abruption born healthy at 38 weeks. In 2005 I had an uterine ablation and was told very risky if I was to get pregnant. Well it is Mid December & I am 9 weeks 5 days pregnant conceived on Loestrin-24. My OB freaked out on me and explained all the risks involved. Had 1st u/s at 5 weeks and said implantation looks good. Referred to a high risk dr.had that visit today and I will not be going back again. Strong heartbeat on u/s but she recommends terminating pregnancy due to the risks told me I have 3 healthy children already. I informed her I am aware of the risks and termination is not an option. I do not want to be naive nor negative. I want to stay educated and prepared for whatever happens. Hoping everything will be o.k. Need lots of prayers:)) Congrats to all of yall. So glad I found you guys!!! New Orleans, La  CMR

Hello ladies (and one gent - LOL)-
I stumbled across this site as well...  I was searching for info on pregnancy after ablation.  I became curious about the subject because I too am divorced (after 15 years of marriage) and now am seeing a wonderful man.  I had the Novasure procedure done in 2008.  At my last OB visit, I informed my doctor that I was concerned about the possibility of getting pregnant and she started me on Loestrin 24.  I never had to worry about birth control before because my ex-husband had a Vasectomy that we watched very closely after having 3 girls (yes, 3).  My OB has always been very good at keeping me informed of the risks of having the procedure and the possibility of getting pregnant.  She told me from the start that I should always consider the fact that I may get pregnant.  However, she also told me that many women have successful pregnancies after the procedure and some don't.  So I always knew the risks...

After reading the posts here, I am very concerned.  Especially with the last post from CMR.  However, I know we can't change God's plan for us. I do thank God that I found this forum.  This is the first positive one that I've come across and I am encouraged.  I love reading the updates and I pray that each and every one of you are doing well with your situations.  

My doctor also specializes in high-risk pregnancies and told me that if I decide to have children in this new relationship, that is was okay and she would make sure I had all the necessary screenings.  Please ladies, if you don't have a good OB, then please find one and check their references.  

I will keep you all in prayer and I hope to hear more good stories from you all.  I pray you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hi Lily, Everyone, I have not posted in a while.
Just wanted to let everyone know my wife delivered a relatively healthy baby girl Dec 3 @  37 wks 2 days and was 5 lbs. via c-section after having an ablation in 2008.  A very slight acreta had formed(less than 10% of the placenta) but no hystrctmy was performed as the medical team thought it was not sever enough to cause additional bleeding and her body would eliminate it naturally, and so far so good.  We are taking stronger precautions from now on to avoid any further pregancy as we will not go through this again, was a rough 3rd trimester for mom.
Good luck everyone.    AJ1961

Hello all I am new! I had the novasure ablation in November of 2007 and had a tubal ligation after I had my son October of 2005. My ex husband made that decision I was 20 and my doctor allowed it. I am getting married to my best friend of 16 years this coming up May We were wanting to have a child so I researched and found this place and I have to say I am so ecstatic! I am going to meet with a high risk ob/gyn on the 10th of this month to see how my uterus looks. He said if it looks good he may be able to give me hormones to help my endometrium be stronger if it is weak. If he feels I can carry a child we will be getting my tubes fixed! We are definatly airing on the side of caution I want make sure that We are fully educated and if the doctor gives the red light then we know it's not possible. We would love to have a child I so deeply regret allowing my ex husband to control me and that decision I was scared henwould follow through with his threats of leaving.
I want to say that I do know there are risks but I am trying to make all the proper choices and make sure we are prepaired. Also I am so happy to all of you that were able to bring a chd into this world after ablation you do give others hope!!!

I just went to the doctor just a few hours ago to get an ultrasound and they measured my endometrium and found ot it is growing back. They also fond a small jelly bean shaped mass attatched to my uterus at this time they dont for sure know what it is but we I will go see him Monday to discuss the results. They do think that I may have jst conceived so I am worried yet excited!!!! Does anyone have any idea what it could be if not that I am so worried not and I am not wanting to wait until Monday!!!

I wanted to let you know I have heard a few things that help my doctor told me estrogen and also that a fertility doctor can give out meds that would help thicken. My fiance and I were hoping to have a child as I have had my tbes tied and an ablation. I started going to a high risk doctor and asked tons of questions. I did not want to get pregnant and have something go terribly wrong since this is extremely dangerous. My doctor told me that getting pregnant after an ablation is extremely dangerous. However, he did say that as long as the uterus was not scarred and there was enough lining that it was possible to carry a child to term. He did say that if there was not enough of an endometrial lining that I would be at high risk for placenta accretia which is where the placenta grows into the uterine wall. My best advice I can give you is checking with your doctor and getting a few opinions! Good luck!

My docc in uk not interested so thought i would do my own research. I had the balloon ablation and been told that viagra helps to thicken lining too. Am i on the wrong track?

I have visited a few reproductive endocrinologists. What I am learning is that many of them are not experienced with an intentional pregnancy post ablation. You may have to visit several REI's or fertility specialists before you find one that meets your needs. The most common things I have been told about are provera and estrogen for rebuilding the uterine lining. Hysteroscopy may be necessary if scarring is present to allow your uterus to rebuild correctly. It is possible and many dangers can be minimized with careful planning, education and patience. Don't lose hope.

I am like you. I want to have a baby. I DO NOT want to endure the difficulties that so many of the women in here have described. I am mentally prepared for my physician to tell me that carrying a child is not possible and that I have to consider adoption/surrogate. This forum is not geared for us, but I think it is crucial to read through the challenges others have suffered so we don't intentionally jeopordize ourselves and our child.

That said, if I come across any new information I will definitely share it. Please do the same. It seems there are many that are seeking the same answers. If you haven't found the right doctor, keep shopping. This is a gray area in the medical profession. Good luck!

I am also 38. I am a mother of 4 (14,12,9,7) I had an ablation Oct 2009 and had the essure springs implanted since my doctor stressed how important it was to NOT get pregnant.Now  1 1/2 years later I find myself pregnant. I have not had a period the entire time. I just started to feel run down and tired then i recognized the symptoms.
I am now 11 weeks and everything seems to be going along just fine . On Feb 4th I go back to the doctor for an  another ultrasound.

I am a mum at the age of 33 and some years back I decided to be sterilised as I was in a very abusive relationship (marriage) and didn't then want to have anymore children and a few years later I had a thermal ablation (2006) due to excessive bleeding and anaemia.
At the time when i had the sterilisation done I was in my mid 20's the hospital was reluctant to do the procedure because of my young age but because of what I was going through, I was sure I didnt want to have anymore children and they went ahead with it.
I have since been divorced and have been re-married (3yrs now). My husband and I have children from a previous marriage but desperately would like to have one of our own, I have read much of the other comments and there is much that I have learned from them, my yearning to be pregnant again is so great, my husband talks about it all the time.
I am finding it extremely difficult to come to terms that it may not happen as I have had so much against me. We plan to raise the money to have the sterilisation reversed.
I have heard of a few women who have become pregnant after both procedures i know that it is risky, but I think if I dont try I won't know-what if? keeps coming to me.
Is it really all up for me? Does anyone have any advice. Words cannot express my saddness of my decision to have the procedures done in the first place and I so much want to have a little one that we will both love and care for.

Okay, I wasn't going to  post here. But can't help myself. I'm hoping to get something here from someone. The waiting is driving me crazy. I'm 38, I have 4 children 15, 11, and 8 yr old twins. After my twins were born I had my tubes tied. Then 3 yrs ago, because of heavy bleeding, i had an ablation. I never stopped having my periods. I've had one every month. They are light, but none the less, periods. I had a period in Nov. In Dec. I had literally, a spot of blood, and then no period. In Jan. I had some lower back pain, and then extreme pain in my lower abdomin (abdomen). The pain went to just uncomfortable over the next few days. I now have not had a period in Jan. 2 months with no period!! My breast are sore and leaky, my hips have twitches of pain, I have to pee all the time. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Can I be pregnant? Or is something else going on. I have an apt with my Dr. in 4 days. But the waiting, and thinking about it is driving me crazy. I was told by the nurse to take a preg. test. Which I haven't done. I guess my fear is. If by some unlikely chance, I am preg. Because of the pain I had in the begin. Did it attach somewhere it shouldn't have to cause me the pain. And why did it just go away? If someone could please give me advice. It would be so helpful. Thank you.

1576793_tn?1301435136
it sounds very familar. If the pain has stopped that is a good thing. IF you are pregnant and it is in your tubes to pain would have gotten a lot worse, not gone away. Think good thoughts!!  Your doctors appointment will be here before you know it.  Good luck and let us know  what the doctor says.

Thank you for the reply. I keep thinking.... I cant be pregnant. I've had thoughts about wishing i hadn't had my tube done, and the ablation. But just lived with the knowing I was done. But now it seems to be all I can think about, because of whats going on .Now I'm scared.. Thank you again for the reply. I guess I'm just looking to see, if after the ablation, is this pain I had a "normal" sign of pregnancy. I've been pregnant before and it never hurt. Although the pain is now gone. Cant wait.... 3 days and i'll know for sure....

Hi I have just read your comments posted last year, I found them to be very encouraging.How are you?
You seem to have gone quiet in your posts and was wondering if you were well.
I also wanted to comment on the information that you were giving about many in the profession misleading women as to their condition. I was shocked to hear that the problem with having the procedure done in the first place is being left with scar tissue, it sounded as though you were saying that this scar tissue can be healed, is this so?
If it is so how can this be done, i had this done some years ago and wished so badly that things could be different now, my husband and I long for a child, I have had very very slight bleeding in the past but to say that it is a period, would be a joke, I do get period pains but no bleeding as such, once in a blue moon I get overjoyed thinking that it will be regular but that is not the case.
We do not have the money for any kind of IVF treatment, my GP has told me that there is no chance for me, is there anything that I can do to help rebuild my lining? Do I have to have surgey to have the scarring removed?
I would really live to hear from you.
Thanks Emmi

Hi.  I am 47 y/o and recently married the most wonderful man in the world. I had the rollerball ablation in 1999 for heavy bleeding.  I have had 3 children successfully w/o complications.  Pregnancy was wonderful for me and delivery was quick!!  After my ablation, I did not have a period for 2 years and now, I have a very light period every month.  It lasts about 2 days.  My husband and I have recently started talking with a fertility specialist to see if we can get pregnant soon.  I am having a 'hysteroscopy' (he will go in with a laproscopic camera to view my uterus) next week so he can see just how much scarring is in the uterus.  We are praying for a miracle.  My husband has never had children and really wants one. I will keep you updated.  God Bless all you women who are praying for a miracle in having a baby!!

I just went on this site b/c my husband and I feel the same way as you. We have 3 healthy babies, I am 43, I had the endometrial ablation done 2years ago with the thought that we were done. I also had my tubes tied after our last baby. Now, we sit here, regretting our decision. We are not well off, but we do have the means to have another child, but will we be able? Should we go through the possible pain of losing another child (we suffered one miscarriage between our 1st and 2nd children). I hope that you find peace with whatever life gives you, and I hope the same for us. I wonder if science has gone too far with giving us so many options? We wouldn't be in this forum if science hadn't created the ablation in the first place. Good luck to you..ALicia

I had the procedure in 2007 because I was in a committed relationship with an older man who no longer wanted and could not have any more children. I made this decision based on the fact that we were going to grow old together. Now that we are no longer together I am fearful that I will not be able to conceive a child if I find someone else who wants children. I feel like I am not marketable to any man who wants children. Now that I have read your stories I am hopeful that if I make the decision to have more children that all hope is not lost. Thank you so much for restoring my faith.

Sorry I haven't responded. I pretty much checked out since there was no talk here for so long. How are things going for you? Still baking that baby I hope.

Things are chugging along here. I'm now 29 weeks. I still have the PICC line in but we are in the process of decreasing the meds. Hopefully only one or two more weeks and I'll be done. As far as we can tell he is doing very well. At my 25 wk U/S he was a pound + ahead of schedule, so the growth issues are okay for now. I have another one tomorrow, hopefully he'll still be a little ahead. At 26 wks I was in L&D with contractions 1 1/2 minutes apart but like I said, still chugging along! As far as energy, it's the typical pregnancy amount. I just wish the tailbone pain would subside.

Let me know how you are holding up. And I'll check in here a little more often now that there are a few of us.

Update: WANTING a baby post-ablation

I have not written since January. I have gone to see 4 other REI's and I ended up finding one REI that had a lot of experience with my situation. I am in Phoenix and I was desperately trying to find the REI tonynchar wrote about months ago.  I found him. :)

If I visited a REI and they expressed a lack of experience or expressed disinterest in making an attempt, I did not return. To put it out there, just because an REI will see you does not mean that you have great odds. But I would still encourage you to seek the assistance of a specialist that has experience and will give you an honest answer.

I just had hysteroscopy performed 2 weeks ago and he has had me on estrogen hormones. During the hysteroscopy he was able to cut out a very large majority of the scar tissue and I had a "balloon" in my uterus for a week after the surgery to make sure that the cavity healed open. My REI said that my procedure was "very successful" which gives me better odds than I started out with. My initial sonogram showed that about 70% of my uterus had been closed up or healed together and I had a great deal of scar tissue. After the hysteroscopy, he told me he was able to open the cavity 100%. My REI said the results are different for every woman and different types of ablation are more challenging to un-do than others. ( I had hydrotherm ablation)

The plan is to take Femara and try for a baby. I would do some research on Femara. It has been compared to Clomid, but you will find that it is better suited for women post-ablation as it does help rebuild the endometrium.

As for those of you that do not have the financial means or the insurance- This process is not inexpensive. Fortunately, I have excellent health insurance and my REI was able to get this submitted as Asherman's syndrome, so the bulk of it has been covered by my insurance. Most insurance have very limited coverage for fertility. So, if I end up having to do IVF then it is on my dime.

I usually get back on every 6 weeks to see what else has been posted, but I will write again if I have any valuable new information. I have HOPE. There is no guarantee, but I am hopeful.

Hello everyone! I am encouraged by the positive stories. I am 34 and have two children (15 & 11). I got a divorce last year and am now back with my first love. I had HTA done in October of 2009 not expecting to ever want another child. I went without periods for several months and then they came back full force. I got on the Depo-Provera shot to stop my periods. Call me crazy but my b/c expires in 2 weeks and we are going to try and have a baby. I pray that God will bless us with a miracle. Good luck to everyone else who is hopeful!

I just read your story and If I were in your shoes, I would thank God for the children I have and not try for more. I have lost 3 babies post ablation (now have tubes tied) and it has completely wrecked me. It is very dangerous to be pregnant post-ablation and there is a chance the baby could be born in the late 2nd trimester, which, if the baby lives, he could have numerous health problems. Plus, you are 43 and your risks for Down Syndrome go up by 50 percent. I'm not trying to be a debbie downer, just my opinion.

I am reluctant to even post here but I am 31 week pregnant and although I have had problems in the pregnancy none related to the ablation I had preformed in 2007.  The baby they say is very healthy just keeping my fingers crossed.  Pregnancy after ablation is a new concept to obgyn just make sure you feel comfortable with the answers your getting from your Drs. and make sure you have a knowledgeable high risk specialist.  Good luck to everyone ill keep you all posted.

3 1/2 years ago I had the Novasure procedure done. After some minimal research, I have found that there have been successful pregnancies after the procedure. One study suggested the possibility of hormone theraphy to rebuild the lining of the Uterus.  For those of you that are currently expecting after the ablation, were you actively trying or was it a "Surprise"?   If you were trying, what assistance did you recieve from your doctor?

Update:

When I first went to my REI had almost zero endometrial lining. Since my hysterocopy and estrogen cycles, I am now up to 8mm. So in 6 weeks I have almost a full lining. The goal is between 10-12 mm of lining. I go in for my HSG next week to make sure that my tubes are clear. Once I have 10-12mm of endometrial lining then we have the green light to get pregnant.

As far as hormones, my doctor had me taking estrogen in pill form 3 times a day and estrogen gel applied to my wrists twice daily. After a month, he gave me a shot of progesterone to induce a period. I have not had one drop of blood since my ablation and I just began a full, normal cycle.

So, that is the update. Good luck to you guys still searching for answers.

I am so happy to hear that things are smoothing out for you!!! I have been following your pregnancy for months and I know it has been a tough road for you. If I recall, your husband is also gone most of the time with work, so I can't imagine the additional stress. You have been through so much, so you were due for some good news.

Congratulations on your progress. I hope that things continue in that direction. :) Blessings to you.

Im 37 yrs old and have 3 sons ages 19,13,& 9. I had an ablation in 2008 to help alleviate heavy bleeding. My periods since then have been slightly lighter and lasting about 4 days instead of 6-7. My menstrual cramps were alot stronger post ablation. Just found out that I'm pregnant and have an appointment with my obgyn tomorrow. I estimate that im about 5 weeks along.

I have really enjoyed reading all the post. Like everyone else I had an EA a year ago and tubal ten years ago. I choose the EA due to heavy bleeding and being I have been single for 11 years did not think I would ever get remarried. Well, I did get remarried. Just recently. We have not used birth control because like everyone else we did not think it was possible to become pregnant. I am now late and have symptoms but I keep telling myself no way. After reading all the post I guess I should take a home test. Everyone keep posting I love this support system. Have a Blessed Day.

I am 41 and 16 years post UA. I am now 10 weeks and 4 days pregnant confirmed by US today. I have 4 children 22, 21, 19,18 and recently underwent a total gastric bypass and lost 170 pounds in the last 16 month. Left a long marriage and just left a relationship of which this is a result. I don't want a baby and not now. But I am not an advocate of abortion and yet know that the risks of this are great. There is not enough information for me to make a decision knowing that it is the right one. I just keep thinking if the baby was wanted would I be weighing the risks so greatly. 0.7 percent chance my ***....I am so mad they told me I would never get pregnant. I have never had a period in 16 years!!! I feel like such a fool to even find myself in such a ridiculous position at my age!!!!

Very confused and very upset to say the least.

Going Monday for a suction termination. Which is a denial word for ABORTION!  Cannot cope with all this. After all the reading, I can see that the changes of a viable healthy baby in the end are very slim. At 41 I cannot cope with a disabled child nor risk my life which I   see is very common. Having a uteral hysterectomy following. I am so glad that I found out I was pregnant earlier than later. I had 4 kids so I knew I was at about 10 weeks for sure. My breasts are already enormous. Never ever thought after 16 years of having EA  procedure this would happen to me...

Hi to all you positive pregnent mums out there....

I too had an ablasion a few years back, was in a long term mariage which then ended!!!!!
I have two Children 14 & 11 and a fab new fella who wants a baby...  to be truthfull I didn't think I could get pregnant, i've also just turned 40 which I thought was a contributing factor - any way, you guessed it, found out on thursday I'm pregnant.... aahhhh. I'm still in shock.  also a bit scared to hope for the final outcome at this stage.  

The hospital are sending me an appointment for this coming week to have a dating scan.  (My house is on the market, I've been looking for a new job, had a long spell with a sinus infection so pregnancy was the last thing on my mind) - it will be interesting to see how far along I am (further rather than less I hope).
I suspect about 8/9 wks, although I have had continued light bleeding during these months which I assummed where my period - another reason I am still in shock.  Now that I've confirmed pregnancy the bleeding is more worrying.

Has anyone elce further on than me also experienced bleeding, is it something I should expect or worry more about?

Any way its great to speak to like minded people, who I hope to share your and my experience with to the very end.....

Take Care All x

Hi all i'm new too this but here goes my story... i'm 30years old and after 10miscarriages i had a little boy who is coming up 6 with a very complicated pregnancy but i was induced at 38 weeks and all is well i also have a girl who is 3 and had pretty much the same problems through pregnancy so i was high risk.. I had 1 miscarriage after my girl was born. I have always sufferd heavy periods, I had a coil fitted asi got told this would help unfortunatly it got embedded in my womb and i had to have it surgically removed at the same time i had a thermal ablation.. I also had a 8 month course of zoladex to bring on early menopause which helped with my syptoms (symptoms)..so I'm infertile right? well i stopped my zoladex as my consultant said its not good to take it long term and so the pain returned agonising i convinced my consultant to book me in for a hysterectomy which I was due to have 1st june 2011 unfortunatly my husband had a accident at work in march and he has badly injured his arm and is no longer able to do his job and couldnt manage with the  children if i was to be out of action for 6 weeks after hysterectomy.. so ive postponed it untill next year! Anyway sunday night i was rushed into hospital with agonising stomach pains and passing out  i didnt have a clue what was wrong but i thought i was going to die i was so scared after a few routine tests they thought i may have gallstones until....they did A pregnancy test and its positive !!! well i was put straight onto the ward and seen my the consultant and had a scan and hcg test i'm 5 weeks pregnant! whats even more amazing is my endometrium is 6mm thick and thats normal the sonographer couldnt believe i had a ablation and the zoladex she said my endometrium looks normal. well i'm under the consultant and a few others and after being discharged on wednesday i had to go back to the ward yesterday(Friday) had another scan and everything was fine my hcg is going up as it should and i have weekly scans my next one due 8th july! i'm very nervous but upto now all looks ok and they said theres risks but they dont think too much too worry about as yet so just to rest!

I would like to share my experience with those of you who would like to have a baby after a novasure procedure. I had mine back in December and we are now trying to have another baby i already have to boys so we decided to try for a baby girl, anyway long story short I decided to go to an infertility doctor. I went today to my first visit and the doctor was very honest and clear with me . He told me that he was going to start me on some estrogen for two months since my uterus lines is only on 4 so he thinks that estrogen should help my linen to grow back. I am just giving you all who wants to try to have a nother baby after a novasure to please go to a doctor firstttttttttttttttttttttt infertility doctor before you try anything because like we read in this post it is extremely dangerous to get preagnant after a novasure without been treated your uterus.the problem is not getting preagnant the problem is that once you get preagnant you are putting your  baby and your life in a big risk since you have not enough uterus linen to support the placenta and the embrion. there is hope but the first step should be infertility doctor start the treatment on estrogen or which ever your doctor decides to do and then you will have a green light to get preagnant. i hope this will help somebody outthere . for me it was a big light of hope since we thought that we had no options after novasure but thanks to God and to the infertility doctor there is a litle bit of hope but in a responsible way and a healthy way for me and my future baby.

I am currently 21 weeks and 4 days pregnant, I have found out I am having a baby girl. My pregnancy seems to be going normal, minus the fact that the bottom of my uterus has scar tissue. My baby girl is sitting at the top of my uterus and growing as per norm. She is very active and we have seen her in many ultrasounds, and everything is right on track.
I had an ablation in 2007, I was not planning on having anymore children but apparently the good lord had other plans for me and my partner. I do not and would not abort as I am not a supporter of them. I look at it in a different perspective, the cards I am ddealt in life are the ones I must play. I pray every day that we will have a sucessful pregnancy and we both are safe at the end.
I live in Canada so the medical care and tests that they do are completely different from the ones in the states. The technology that they have now is astonishing and I am crossing my fingers that everything works out. I have a good feeling about my pregnancy. I have 3 great doctors that provide excellent care. I see a gynocologist, my family doctor in my town and then I go to the high risk unit that is 1 1/2 hours from my home. I will be delivering there as well.
I know the hospitals can work miracles as my sons baby was born at 29 weeks and he is doing great.
I know that this will be my last baby as I may have to have the hystorectomy after Chloee is born, I am 100% fine with that. It all depends if the placenta will let go on its own or not.
For all you moms that are pregnant I wish you all the best...I will cross my fingers for you all.
Take Care and I will try to check in soon.

I had microwave ablation November 2008 and am currently 12 weeks pregnant (36 years old) and have had no complications yet. My doctor has warned me that as the baby gets bigger my uterus may have problems supporting it, but he says maybe not and things could be completely normal too. I did not try to get pregnant, or plan to, or even think I could --  certainly this baby is changing my families lives since my two children are 12 and 13.. But it is what it is and if my story could help someone in this scary place I want to tell it. The truth is it does happen, and the lack of info on the web, or from the doctor makes me want to talk about it. I am excited and hope that things work out for the best. Please if you are pregnant keep us updated.

I did not plan my pregnancy, I was extremely shocked when I found out. As for trying to get pregnant after the ablation, I would not recommend it. There are alot of heath issues for both Mom and the baby. ALWAYS GET A DOCTORS OPINION prior to attempting having another child. Mine being a surprise is a blessing, but we are still high risk and I pray everyday that everything works out for us...
Best of luck to those of you who are in the same situation as me, by having a pregnancy that was not planned after your ablation. As a fellow member had said to me (as she was pregnant when I met her on here) Be prepared for a big emotional roller coaster, the fear of losing your baby at anytime is very very scary!!!

  I had a thermal ablation done in '09 for extremely heavy and painful periods that I had suffered with for over 10 years and had been told that I had stopped ovulating.  NO eggs, no period, no lining, no chance of getting pregnant, right?  I have not had a period since that procedure so again, no worries.   Well, our Good Lord had other plans for us.  4 weeks ago I went in for my yearly exam and came out 19 weeks pregnant, I'm now at 23 weeks. I had no idea, no symptoms, cravings, sickness, nothing.  I was very active, played sports, flown a couple of times, had a couple of drinks, typical stuff that I would not have done if I knew I had been pregnant.  I was in complete shock, as was the doc.  we have already been to the specialist and everything is looking good so far for our new baby boy. He will make our 3rd boy :).   Reading these posts, I have hope that everything is going to be ok but that is not to say that I am not a nervous wreck.  My anxiety is high and I'm constantly calming myself with meditation, reading, walking.. anything to not constantly think about all the complications that could happen and I just try to focus on the positive.  I will try to post again periodically to keep everyone posted on our progress.

I had a thermachoice thermal ablation done in July 2008. I am a 36 year old mother of 2. I Got divorced in 2010 from my husband of 16 years. I have 2 children from my previous marriage. My daughter is 15 and my son is 10.
I met my boyfriend the summer after my divorce in 2010. he is 37 and never had children. I explained to him the surgery i had in 2008 and that my chances of having a child and carrying it are very slim.

We found out in January i was pregnant.I was scared to death ..not knowing what would or could happen.

We Just found out in May its a girl and she is healthy and doing well and so am i. Everything is going great. I am now 30 weeks pregnant. I am still considered high risk and have taken all tests necessary to make sure everything is ok with me and baby.
30 weeks into the pregnancy and everything is going great ! =)

I had an ablation due to severe periods and never stopped having a period. Though I went from 16 months of a 19 heavy  period  every month to 3 to 4 normal period days a month. Now  I notice the blood flow is getting heavier now. Also some cramping again. Im confused about becoming pregnant. Can I actually possibly conceive?

It wouldnt be a bad thing. Not sure why it never happened for me but a 42 I would love it now. This would be thelast shot for me.

Im confused an see so much to read here. Can anyone shed some light?

If a woman wants to have a baby post ablation and she is smart enough to take the necessary precautions then I do not see where you have any right to judge her. If she is to go to a doctor, have scar tissue removed and have her uterine lining thickened to be able to support a fetus then what is the problem? I'm sorry you had such problems..I really am. But you have no right to judge anyone. People get pregnant and die during delivery everyday during "normal" pregnancies...does that mean that nobody should get pregnant because of that risk?

Hi, I am 32  and had a thermal ablation over a year ago. I have always had a light period every month. When i was having my ablation i was supposed to get my tubes tied at the same time, but didnt. I kept saying that i would get it done. I was using contraception as my OB had said that the ablation was not a form of contraception.
Anyhow, after some mid cycle spotting i went to my GP 5 weeks ago, who confirmed that I was pregnant. I had a period everymonth so needed to go for early ultrasound.
After going for an ultrasound, the sac was visible with no heartbeat, the OB said that I would more than likely miscarry, but to come back in 2 weeks and organise the d&c if needed. So 2 weeks later i went back to find that there was now 2 sacs that had grown, but still no heartbeat. Am so worried at the moment , i am now officially pregnant with twins. The chances that a normal pregnancy seems to work out seem so slim, i have no idea whats going to happen here. I already have 2 children 10 and 6.  Termination isn't available in my country so thats not an option.
My OB/GYN has never come accross a pregnancy after ablation but he is really good, he has delivered both my children , 1 by emergency section and the other by elected section. Reallt cant wait till friday to see what happens.

I had an endometrial ablation in 2005, I was divorced and met my current husband in 2008. My new husband ( a childhood friend) never had any children and we wanted a child together badly. We found out 11/29/2009 that we were pregnant. At 14 weeks my water broke for no apparent reason but I did not go into labor. On May 6, 2010 at 26 weeks I went into labor giving birth to a beautful little girl who unfortunately passed away 2 hours after her birth. She weighed 1 lb 9 oz, her lungs did not develop. The doctor was supposed to tie my tubes but he couldn't do it because of the situation and I am thankful he didn't because he must have known it really was a fluke.
I am proud to announce that Easter Sunday 2011 we found out we were expecting again! I am currently 18 weeks 5 days pregnant wth another girl! So far all is well, I am moniered biweekly by the high risk perinatologist as well as my obgyn.  I have relocated and have all new doctors who aware  of everything and seem to think this pregnancy will be just fine.
I will keep you all posted!

16 weeks pregnant and still no problems yet--waiting for 20 week ultrasound to get a better look..(had two ultrasounds one at 9 week for conf of pregnancy due date and one at 13 weeks for nuchal translucency test).. At 16 weeks I am already showing  and look pregnant enough for people to tell something is going on in there.

stillstanding--I feel for your decision, I was terrified when I found out I was pregnant, and I still feel like the floor could drop from under me at any moment (I have two kids 12 and 13) but I thought about the same thing you did..Would like to know what you have decided.

I, like many of you, was surprised to find that I was pregnant 2 years after my ablation.  We have 2 children, 7 and 9 years old, and were done.  In fact, I had been to the ob/gyn last month to discuss a hysterectomy because I still had extremely heavy bleeding and was in the process of scheduling the surgery when I found out.  We are not exactly delighted by the prospect of a new family member.  My husband is very concerned for my health due to the risks.  Have decided, for now, to let things take their course.  Constantly questioning myself!  Thanks for letting me unload on you all!  Don't feel like I can share with friends and family at this point.  5 weeks along.

Follow your heart is the line I have been using for the past 26 weeks. I am 26 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I am 39 now (had my bday a few weeks ago) and I am expecting my 4th child. I have 3 boys and I am now expecting my first girl. I have alot of scar tissue on my uterus but I have not ran into any real issues (knock on wood)
I waited till I was 13 weeks before telling any friends and family. My mom was upset that I didnt tell her sooner but when I told her I was told I could lose it and that I didnt want to have to go back an explain to everyone about it she quickly understood.
I wish you all the best throughout your journey, and look forward to sharing my journey with people in the same situation. Remember your not alone, there is a bunch of us on here that did not plan another pregnancy but God obviously had another plan for us....stay strong :)
