It is possible if a small part of the endometrium is intact. Your doctor will have to advise you on this. You would definitely be at risk with such a pregnancy since the uterine lining has been disrupted and the fertilized ovum could have difficulty implanting and remaining viable. There have been reported cases of intrauterine demise, though this also happens at times in otherwise healthy uteri. You might be at increased risk though. In most cases sterility is the result and this procedure should not be undertaken if pregnancy is planned for the future.
