I just got my tubes tied almost 2 months ago, well not sure if they were tied or burned. I'm pretty positive that theres NO way to get pregnant again, but thought i'd ask just incase it happened to anyone. I've been experiencing nausea a lot lately and quite a bit of heartburn (which i've never gotten except when I was pregnant with each kid! I haven't had my period for quite some time, but i'm nursing my daughter right now. Just thought i'd throw it out there and see what kind of feedback I would get!!

I am pretty sure that my tubes were burned and my doctor still said there was a light chance to get pregnant.  Maybe he was just saying that so I can't come back and get him if i became pregnant again!

Rachel, I was exactly the same, always on time, except when pregnant. I was stressing about it, but on the 8th missed, day, I took the test and voila. Bonus Baby.  Get a test already, what will it hurt?

OMG! I worry about the same, the doctor told me that there is a 99.999% chance, just like being on birth control, so like it there is a small probability that it can happen! I pray that it doesnt! I have two girls, my most recent 5 months ago and we just could not afford a 3rd child! Best wishes to you!

Unless you're actually missing the necessary equipment (namely your ovaries) there is no such thing as 100% effective birth control; and that includes tubal ligation or vasectomy. Pregnancy symptoms are not uncommon when nursing, but it might not be a bad idea to get a test done

well i'm not completely sure if my tubes were tied or burned, if they were burned i was told that theres absolutely no way to get pregnant, not even a small one, but the only time i've EVER had heartburn is when i'm pregnant, its weird!

I am wondering the same thing,I had mine tied almost 2 years ago and I am always on time. well I am now 6 days late today. I just started elmiron for my bladder problem so I dont know if that could cause it or not? Or if I am really just pregant which I would love! sence I regret having my tubed tied I will be 25 next month and have 4 kids.I wanted one or two more but we will see:)

I am currently pregnant after having my tubes tied 3 years ago. The chance is small, but it's there.



Also, the risk of ectopic (tubal) pregnancy is much higher, and tubal pregnancies nearly always result in death. Get checked out ASAP, so if you are ectopic, they can correct it before it harms YOU as well.



Not only did I get pregnant, but after 3 ultrasounds, the baby is 100% safe, so I'm thinking it's destiny.

Yes, there is a possibilty.  Because that is reversible incase you want to get pregnant again. Unless the tubes are burned, they can become untied.. Its just like it sounds - they are only tied - like a knot.  To be certain - burn them, you can't "unburn" something..
