Can endometrial ablation be reversed?

No, the damage caused to the uterine lining is permanente and reversal is not possible. Keep in mind that EA involves applying energy to the lining, which causes enough damage to the cells to eliminate the menstrual bleeding. However, in a percentage of EA procedures, the endometrial lining is not completely removed and menstrual flow appears years later (about 5 years).
