Just Wanting Some Advice Really.. Could I Be Pregnant?

Just Wanting Some Advice Really.. Could I Be Pregnant?

Hi ladies, so I had my endometrial ablations in May 2016 and I am now 4 days late on my period, I'm not on any BC and haven't been for a while... I've had 2 periods since my operation and my periods fortunately have always been quite regular, I have done 2 tests, yet both say negative.. Is this possible I could be pregnant or could I just be getting my hopes up or it all be in my head? 😕

According to WebMD (aka Dr Google), "Although this surgery usually causes sterility by destroying the lining of the uterus, pregnancy may still be possible if a small part of the endometrium is left in place". (http://www.webmd.com/women/endometrial-ablation...)

As you're not on birth control, there is always a small chance. If your period doesn't arrive in a couple of days, maybe best to go to the Dr and get a test done there, just for peace of mind. Good luck.
