I had my tubes tied four years ago after our youngest was born. Then last fall, I got pregnant. I knew it was a higher chance of a tubal pregnancy, so I went right away to have an ultrasound. The doctor said it was tubal (there was something visible in my uterus that he said was just blood because I hadn't had my period, and there was something visible off to the side that he said was the tubal pregnancy). He scheduled emergency surgery for the next day. At my follow up a couple of weeks later, he told me that when he got "in there", it wasn't a tubal pregnancy at all, it was a cyst on my ovary that he saw off to the side, and a miscarriage in my uterus. So now I will never know for sure if I should have had the surgery, or if it could have been a viable pregnancy. The chance is about 1 in 200 that you can get pregnant after having tubes tied, whereas it is about 1 in 1000 if your husband has a vasectomy; if I had known this I would have pushed my husband harder to have it done instead of me, that would have saved a lot of heartache and pain, and a second surgery. Good luck to you; get it checked out!!

Yes, it is possible to get pregnant after your tubes have been tied! You need to go see your doctor ASAP. Pregnancies that occur after a tubal ligation can be ectopic (outside the uterus) so it is very important to get yourself checked out!

I know a woman who'd had her tubes tied, after the birth of her first son, but got pregnant anyway. She now has healthy twin boys. Yes, it's possible.

Our stories are pretty mmuch identical. 3 kids, complications, tubes tied during c-section. About 10 months after my last was borna nd my tubes were tied. I was having those symptoms to, and I was freaked out that I was pregnant. It turned out that my blood sugar and Iron was low. After taking different vitamins and Iron, i was feeling better. Who knew? :) try taking Vitamin B, it helps with Engery and stress.

it is possible.. i know someone who fell pregnant shortly after having her tubes tied after her 5th child.. i have also been told that the operation doesnt come into full effect straight away ive been told you can still fall pregnant up to 3 months after the operation. your best bet is to go to the doctor and get it checked out :)

From what I remember there is a chance.
I would get in touch with the doctor and see. You want to get checked out because if your not pregnant there might be something else going on.

i had my tubes tied as well and my doctor told me it's 98% effective, so yes, it is possible to be pregnant. He also told me that if I were to become pregnant, the chances of an ectopic pregnancy were far greater because of the procedure so if I were you, I would take a pregnancy test asap or get to the doctor

i think that is something you need to go and see your dr about asap i dont know anything about that subject of getting your tubes tied atleast not really and i havent heard of anything about them but i would think that its still possible in ways but the baby wouldnt make it to your uteris and it would be a tubal-ligation pregnacy and can rupture your tubes now all this could be wrong like i said i dont know anything about it but if you are pregnant or you think you are id make an app asap just to find out what it going on and all that idk what your age is so maybe it could be another part of women hood but you look very young so this probably shouldnt be happening get it checked out soon hon
