Pregnancy after Ablation and Tubal Ligation

glmitchell75 posted:
I am 37 and had my tubes tied, cut and burnt over 11 years ago. I had the cryo-ablation (freezing of the uterus) done in 2003. My periods became lighter after the ablation, but I was still have them. And they were like clock work; not like before when I would miss a month or two. My last period was March 18 and I have the swollen ankles from time to time, the crampy feeling in my lower abdomen, not so much the fatigue or painful breasts. I feel stupid for even thinking that I could be pregnant, but what else could it be? Someone help me please!

Swollen ankles could be from dehydration, water retention, diet, heat, exercise, excessive weight, or age.

Lower abdomen cramps could be so many things...

I would say, go to the doctor and discuss with them. I doubt you're pregnant.
