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.

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.
