Pregnancy Test ASAP: Any tubal ligation can fail. Since pregnancy risk is higher for an ectopic pregnancy, you should immediately check a pregnancy test, if positive, see your doc today or go to the er. Since you had a tubal ligation done, a positive test means an ectopic pregnancy until proven otherwise. Good luck and don't delay. Tubal rupture can be life threatening.
