Having : Having your tubes tied is a pretty good way to avoid getting pregnant, but it's not perfect. The rate of pregnancy after tubal ligation if as high as 3% in some reports (that is, 3 women out of 100 with their tubes tied will get pregnant). A home pregnancy test should let you know whether you're one of those 3.
