Samantha, your hormone level may not quite have been enough to show up in the tests. It could go either way. Follow up and see where the egg has implanted.

@ Michelle, a woman still ovulates when her tubes are tied......



@Samantha, I can understand your concerns, because 12% of all pregnancies following a tubal ligation end in ectopic pregnancy. However, I do have to say that if the test is showing positive now, there is the possibility that it implanted BEFORE your tubes were ties, in which case, it will probably have implanted in your womb. Having said this, you still need to go and get it checked out, the earlier the better because if it IS ectopic, it needs to be addressed sooner rather than later.

I'm 42, with 4 sons aged 26 22 16 & 14. Had my tubal done after last one was born. ER dr confirmed a positive pregnancy test this week and internal ultrasound showed baby is in uterus. I'm already showing signs of high blood sugar and worried about other high risk pregnancy problems I have to look forward to. Let alone being single and having to work full-time when I was able to be a stay home mom with other children.

Abbigail, if you had tubal ligation but are experiencing pregnancy symptoms and/or have had a positive test, you should go to the doctor right away. The pregnancy could be ectopic and require surgery, or (if left alone) could rupture. It's pretty common for the clamps to come off around 5 or 10 years after the procedure. Usually you have enough scar tissue to block the tube. But sometimes there's a space big enough for sperm to travel through. Since the female egg is 30x the size of the sperm, the egg generally cannot make it out of the tube and causes a major medical problem... ectopic pregnancy. You need to see your doctor to confirm that you are pregnant, where the embryo is in your body, etc. and talk about your choices on whether to carry the baby or terminate.

Call your Drs. office right away. Even if it's off hours, they will have someone covering. The info should never have been left on your answering machine, that's really unprofessional. Good luck to you.

well my friend thought she was pregnant with tubal pregnacy.. but wassn't.. Let me ask you a question.. when you had your tubes tied.. did you by any chance ovulate? cause if you did.. well your tubes wasn't clamped right.. cause you wouldnt have been ovulating and wouldn;t be pregnant. If you are pregnant.. you can go have an ultrasound done to make sure the baby is in the womb.. It will make you feel alot better.
