May be nothing: Tubal ligation is usually very successful
rarely, it fails and pregnancy can occur
the worry is for tubal ectopic pregnancy
or unwanted births
if you have any suspicion, do a home pregnancy test
likely it will be negative, but better to know early than not to know until it is a problem.
