The whole idea to tubal ligation is for it to be a permanent sterilization. So truly, probably not. It depends on what technique the doctor used, but it is not meant to be temporary. Reversals can be done, but are not covered by insurance and can be expensive. Also, their is a high failure rate. If you do end up being pregnant with a tubal ligation in place, it can be life threatening.

It has a 1 in 300 failure rate, so yes. It's a slim chance, but still a chance.
