Thanks again for your honest replies, I really appreciate it and it makes me feel like you are trustworthy and are not just trying to "sell" me [Smile]

Have you had any patients with a similar situation to mine? I am curious as to the outcomes? Thanks!

JLoflin,
If the diagnostic procedures indicate that the endometrium is normal, then it would be fine to consider tubal reversal surgery. If there are abnormalities resulting from the past endometrial ablation, then the probability of pregnancy would be low, and if pregnancy did occur the risk of pregnancy loss and/or complication increased.You do not have to have a specific thickness, but having your tubes repaired and not being able to support a pregnancy bc of thin endometrial lining might not be in your best interest financially or emotionally.
Normal endometrial thickness ranges from 4-10 millimeters, depending on where you are in your cycle. If the ablation was effective then the endometrium (and the endometrial stripe) will be absent or minimal (less than 4mm).

Thank you Whitney for your reply! My periods are lighter than before but the reason I had the ablation done was because after my TL I began to have awful periods that came every 2-3 weeks. I wish I had known about PTLS back then, I would have never had the ablation done and instead would have had the reversal.

I am scheduled for an ultrasound on 2/14 to check for uterine lining thickness, after this my OB is going to perform a hysteroscopy.

What thickness is considered normal? The ultrasound's timing is right about mid cycle for me. Will the Center perform a reversal on me only if my lining is a certain thickness?

Thanks so much again, I deeply regret getting my tubes tied, worst decision I have made...

JLoflin,
We normally ask patients after an ablation if they are A.) having regular periods i.e not to light or too short. and B.) if they have had a uterine ultrasound to determine the thickness of the endometrium. The endometrial lining must be thick enough to support a pregnancy, that is provide nourishment for the placental developement.
Since you have had 2 periods since your ablation 2 months ago, this is a good sign, though I would recommend further investigation to determine if you do have a thick enough lining. The ablation will not effect whether the tubes can be repaired or not, but it will effect your ability to carry a pregnancy to term.

Hello,

I am new here and have been researching a tubal reversal. I am 35, my tubes were tied in 2008 and I had a hydrothermal ablation done Nov. 15, 2010. I have since gotten AF twice and am wondering if the Center has had success with patients who have had an ablation performed? Thanks so much. [Smile]
