Does endometrial ablation affect the implantation of a fertilized egg?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 03/02/2017

Indeed. To understand why, let me explain you what is the function of the endometrium. This regenerative lining called uterine or endometrial lining is an environment that contains and supports a growing pregnancy after embryo implantation.

In other words, when a fertilized egg lands on the endometrium, the lining of the womb supports and nurtures the pregnancy. If no endometrial lining exists, the fertilized egg has no fertile endometrium to implant and receives neither support nor nurture.
