Wanting to find out if anyone has gotten pregnant after having her option done. My dr told me to keep taking my birth control after the procedure, he was up in the air about it. Am wanting to stop taking birth control. I am 43 years old have been on birth control since i was 18.

Please know that a pregnancy after Her Option (ablation) is considered to be a "high risk" pregnancy, and women need to contact their doctor immediately if they suspect a pregnancy after having this procedure done.

Her Option is only recommended for women who do not plan to become pregnant, but it does not 100% prevent pregnancy (can not be considered a birth control).

What if you find yourself pregnant after the her option procedure was done? I had the her option treatment 2 years ago. I am 50 years old and i`m freaking out. I think I may be pregnant. Is it dangerous to carry a baby after her option and at my age?

Can you tell us more about "finding yourself pregnant"?

You "think" you may be pregnant, why is this? Did you have a positive pregnancy test? Did your period stop and you assume it is due to pregnancy?

Let's first confirm a pregnant or not-pregnant status, and then we can move forward with facts. Please tell us what your symptoms are, what a home pregnancy test result concludes, and we look forward to talking with you soon!

Exactly what is "having her option done"? I am sorry that I cannot answer your question about the chances of getting pregnant after having this procedure because I don't know what you are referring to. With more information, I think we can give you an answer.
