Hi I am new to this. I just wondered if anyone has fallen pregnant whilst sterilised? I had a very faint positive pregnancy test yesterday morning, my period is not due for another 3 days but I have been feeling strange. I keep falling asleep each afternoon for past 5 days, my breasts are tender with spots around areola, I have been getting headaches all day, I felt nauseated whilst making lunch today and had a metal taste in my mouth all day. Just worried if I might be pregnant as there is more chance of ectopic, I was sterilised during a c-section.

I have clips also. But the clips are known to sometimes come off, and if there is not enough scar tissue blocking the tube, then yes, you could get pregnant. There may be increased chance of ectopic pregnancy. Sperm are around 3 microns in size, and the egg is 20x that at around 60 microns, so the sperm may make it past the scar tissue, but the fertilized egg may not be able to make it past the scar tissue to implant in the womb, and thus result in ectopic pregnancy.

You should talk to your doctor to verify the test result, and (if pregnant) to advise how to check for where it has attached.

It depends on how it was done, but yes there is a chance.
Go and see your doctor as we have no idea and can't do the tests.
