User avatar Hello,
Pregnancy is very unlikely following this procedure and if you did become pregnancy, likelihood of a healthy pregnancy is very slim. However, the procedure itself often reduces your bleeding and in the time frame you have experienced many women find they no longer have periods or if they do they are very light.

Of course you can always take a pregnancy test but I doubt this is the situation.

Best wishes.
