I was just wondering if anyone can tell me if there is any new research on pregnancy after having endometrial ablation? I had this operation about 6 years ago and 2 years later I experienced light periods, spotting really, and I became pregnant. I did not follow through on the pregnancy and had a DNC just before the cut off period. I had visited many specialists and contacted a doctor doing research in Nova Scotia. The pregnancy was fine, baby was fine and healthy but the risk was high, the only reason I went through with the DNC and as I already have 3 children. I was 28 at the time of the operation, 30 when I got pregnant and I am now 36 and wanting to start a family with my new husband. I would like to know if after this operation the ovaries still produce eggs or do you go into early menopose? I have been experiencing symptoms of either a period that was suppose to be i.e. breast sensitivity and sometimes fatique. How do you tell if you are pregnant when you don't get a period? Is it possible? Could this just be a pyschological and physical connection? (i.e. me wanting to have a baby so my body is reacting)? Any info would be appreciative.
here is a link that you could read.. if you scroll all the way down to the bottom it says that it is likely that you can become pregnant..if there is any endometrium (sp?) left.. hope it helps you..
Hi, I to had an ablation 2 years ago for heavy bleeding. I continued to have periods, ofcourse they are not as heavy but I never went a month without one. My husband and I are considering tubal revearsal and are concerned about the dangers and risk of the ablation. Is there any test that can be done to see if there is any endometrium available? Did you get pregnant. Is there anyone out there that has experienced this and carried to term? Are there test or ultrasounds that I can take to tell me exactly what my levels are etc.
I had an endometrial ablation in 05, I don't have an bleeding, I was on depo before the ablation and I don't want to become pregnant. I have 2 children already. If I want to have a child with my new husband it will be through a surrogate mother.
I don't want to bleed to death or have a still born child. I have never miscarried in my whole life and I don't want the experience. I would rather pay someone who has a stable womb and make sure that we get a male child the first time around.
Having a child with major/minor medical problems costs more 360 degrees around
than what some people would call renting a womb. From the posts here by the women that get pregnant after ablations it sounds like months of fear and frustration.
Not an enjoyable event where you wait patiently for the new child. I don't think I could handle that paranoia. I wouldn't want that kind of pain, nothing is worth that.
If you can't afford a surrogate then can you afford to have another child? Put said child through College? I wouldn't bring a child into this world on purpose if i didn't
have the money in general.
I understand the pressure of having a new man want a child, but there are options. Like everyone else who has, had an ablation we all made the choice and accepted that choice. If you didn't have the ablation would you of ever met the man in your life?
Probably not, I know I would of been in bed bleeding like a stuck pig in major pain.
I do not regret my ablation no matter how much stress is put on me to give someone a child, I did that once and being with me it is known that I am not willing to do this
again naturally, science is a wonderful thing.
I also don't want to ruin my body, I was young enough when I had my children that I
can easily wear a bikini, my breasts were reconstructed, I am not a baby machine.
I don't want a c-section, no way!
I am hoping to god that I am sterile, that since I do not have a period though my uterus is the normal size, yes I have some endometrium left that I will not ever have a period again and the 0.5 to 0.68 % is a low enough number to never experience the shock of being pregnant.
How would you even know, according to my research I am very low risk for a surprise pregnancy and my feelings are quite raw but mind you, it feels good to take the kid gloves off and not ***** foot around the topic.
What I want to know, is how many of you who had the ablation under 30, no periods, drug treatment with depo have even had a pregnancy scare, I don't feel the need to worry about pregnancy happening, I don't think I should it has been 2.5 years and I have don't spot the only thing I get is a little pre-period discharge that is it. No blood, nothing. Should I worry or can I keep to my original plan of never getting pregnant again.
