Cauterization and fertility

Patient

Q: I had Clymidia a year and a half ago. My female doctor ended up having to cauterize my uterus 4 different times. Can being cauterized this many times lead to infertility?

Symptoms:  Lots of jelly blood clots in period
we have tryed having a baby for 5 months
Doctor

A:   Normally cauterization should not cause problems or interfere with fertility. Please visit your doctor with your medical records to find out what exact procedures were done on you and seek her advice on fertility and the effects of cautery.
