Successful pregnancy after endometrial ablation

5868973?1278214134
I have never posted on a site like this, but I wanted to give hope/info to women faced with pregnancy after endometrial ablation.  I was shocked & terrified to learn that only 14 mths after my ablation, I was pregnant.  I was desperate for info about the risks & there was little to no info available, and even the high risk practice I was referred to seemed unable to site statistics to help me make an informed decision.  I had monthly ultrasounds to monitor fetal growth & to attempt to gauge attachment of the placenta to detect accreta, but it was near impossible to tell anything.  I just turned 40, I am strong & healthy, & my pregnancy was problem free.  I elected to have a C-section even though I was cleared for a vaginal delivery (my previous preg was a vaginal delivery 20 yrs ago!).  I had to force the doc's to agree to a C-section bc I was concerned about the placenta not releasing & the risk of having to have surgery AFTER labor/delivery; turns out this was the right decision.  My water broke at about 39 wks, & I delivered a healthy 6 lb 12 oz boy via C-section, then had my tubes tied.  The placenta was stuck & had to be manually removed, but blood loss was controllable & no transfusion was necessary.  I was very fortunate!!  PLEASE note that ablation was never intended as birth control...my situation was different as my husband has had a vasectomy which failed; this is a miracle baby for sure!
  I just wanted to reassure those women who are facing this situation & searching for info as I did.  I nearly terminated my pregnancy early on, but I'm so glad I didn't, despite lots of fear & worry.  Mom & baby are healthy & grateful.  I hope thi helps!

hello, im glad to hear of your success story and blessing. My husband had a vasectomy in 2004 he did not go back for the sperm count check. In sept of 2007  I had an endometrial ablation. I went almost a year with no periods at all but then started having light periods lasting a day or two. well just recently within the last 6 weeks i have had sore boobs and having to pee frequently. I took a clear blue easy today and it had a faint plus sign...so im worried it can be a false positive. but then i saw your story and see that it can be possible i dont know what to do.

Congratulations on your healthy baby. I am 10 weeks post ablation and scared to death. Been to 2 perinatologists both wanting me to terminate my pregnancy. The ultrasound seems to be fine and everything looks good. I was wondering if after your ablation did you continue to have normal periods? I did my bleeding did slack a small bit but I still have 5-7 day periods every 30 days. I feel great & I go for another ultrasound Dec. 29th. My due date is July 10th. Any advice & support would be much appreciated:))))
Thanks I live in New Orleans,La.

Thank you for your post! I am 21 weeks pregnant,due June 3 2011. I got pregnant 9 months after my ablation.So far everything with my baby seems fine. I am scared because of the pain I am in. I was told last night at the hospital that I would have pain because I had the ablation and that everything wasa all right. I was wondering if you had pain during your pregnancy and if so how did you deal with it.

Hello, this is my first time ever posting on a site like this but there is virtually no information on pregnancy after ablations. I see that you posted this almost a year ago, so I'm curious about your results. I'm considering a tubal reversal myself after having an ablation about 2 years ago. My periods never stopped after the procedure, they just reduced to a normal amount. I've been reading about the placenta attaching directly to the utrine wall and it worries me. I would like to know if the reversal worked, and if it did, how did it all go? Thank you ahead of time for any information you can provide.

I had an Endometrial Ablation and i was never told i couldn't have children afterwards. I very much would love to get pregnant and have another child. Is there anything I can do to have a baby.
