I had mine tied as well but have regretted it since but it is a regret that I have to live with because I can't afford a reversal, so if God see fit for me to conceive again it will happen so pray that God heals you. People say that they have gotten pregnant after but I have seen it happen with my eyes.

It happens, too often, which is why I won't have it done. Risk of ectopic pregnancy is much higher after a tubal ligation and it's a risk we cannot afford, even more so than another baby. My family depends heavily on me and I cannot be replaced. My husband had a vasectomy, but 6 months later conceived twins. So we use protection.

Yes it happens all the time. 1 in 200 in fact :) That's why we ended up going for a vasectomy, because the risks of pregnancy were smaller, LOL.

Seriously though, if you ever suspect you are pregnant after you have had a tubal ligation, you should get confirmation ASAP, because it frequently results in ectopic pregnancy, which can be life threatening and needs to be dealt with immediately. So if you are asking this question because you suspect you may be pregnant, do not wait, get to your doctor.

I knew a lady at my son's daycare who had hers done, and she STILL got pregnant! Her sister had the same trouble. Their drs and husbands were stumped.

It does not happen often, but I have heard of it. I knew a couple ... he was cut, she had a TL, and then they had a baby girl. That kid was meant to be.
