A total of 43 pregnancies that occurred subsequent to endometrial ablation were reported to July 2002. Only 17 of these pregnancies had progressed beyond 20 weeks. We report a successful planned pregnancy following endometrial ablation and sterilization reversal, culminating in vaginal birth after a previous Caesarean section. The English literature has been reviewed to ascertain family planning practices, uterine cavity assessment and pregnancy outcomes after endometrial ablation/resection. Pregnancy management recommendations are provided.
