Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

welcome

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It is not possible to regrow the lining

Dr. Shahzad MD :

unfortunately.

Customer:

There isn't any drugs or treatment

Customer:

why is this

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The procedure that you have had is endometrial ablation or resection in which the endometrium is removed.

Customer:

resection

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This layer provides nourishment to the embryo in early stages.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So when there is no endometrium the nourishment will not be provided.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If endometrium is resected pregnancy can pregnancy can happen in some ladies but the risk of abortion is high.

Customer:

I was told it is possible that it may regrow and I may bleed again. so this is nto posible

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So you need to discuss it with your doctor. Chances of being pregnant are very low.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It may regrow but even then the tissue will not be adequate usually to support the embryo.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So the full lining will not regrow.

Customer:

I understand

Customer:

It really would not be possible to get pregnant

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes but if you are ovulating fine then you have the option of having in vitro fertilzation and a surrogate .

Customer:

what is a vitro fertilization

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In vitro fertilization or test tube baby.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Where your eggs are taken and your partner's sperms are taken and fertilized in a lab.

Customer:

but not have the pregnancy myself

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Exactly.

Customer:

ok

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You would need to contact a fertility clinic in your area to discuss that.

Customer:

how much does it cost to freeze eggs

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Costs vary from location to location.

Customer:

ok thanks

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You would have to contact a fertility center in your area to find out the costs.

You are most welcome
