1 %: In 1% of women, the tubes may not stay blocked over time. Some of these women will unexpectedly become pregnant, and there is a high risk of ectopic or tubal pregnancy. Ectopic can be dangerous and life threatening and requires immediate treatment.
Dr. Ralph Boling
Obstetrics and Gynecology 39 years experience
1/400 chance: depending on the method used to "tie" the tubes.
