I have no idea. Have you had a consultation with your doctor?

I'm an operating room nurse. Cauterization is done in tiny spots to stop little blood vessels from bleeding, and though if excessively used it could possibly affect the environment in your uterus, its unlikely that this is the case. See your gyn, but unless you had an ablation (where the entire uterus is cauterized for the purpose of sterilization), it should have little if any effect.
