Get a pregnancy test: While it is unlikely, pregnancy is possible even after a tubal ligation! there is also a risk of tubal pregnancy (pregnancy occcurring in the fallopian tube) - and that can be dangerous to you. So i'd encourage you to get a pregnancy test, and follow up with your care provider. Lgromkomd.
