Intrauterine pregnancy following endometrial ablation: PDF Only

Background: Only five pregnancies have been reported after endometrial ablation by resectoscopic endometrial resection, for a rate of 0.7% on the basis of three series.

Case: Endometrial ablation was performed using a rollerball electrode on a 37-year-old woman who had menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea. She subsequently conceived but experienced a missed abortion.

Conclusion: Pregnancy is a rare occurrence following endometrial ablation. The effect of endometrial ablation on pregnancy outcome is unknown.(Obstet Gynecol 1994;83: 836-7)
