Can i get pregnant if my tubes are tied n cut?

Yes: There is a very small but real risk of a failed tubal ligation. The failure rate is low at 2-10/per 1, 000 women. There is no 100% guarantee for any form of tubal ligation. ...Read more

I feel movement under my left rib cage. As it moves I can see it stick out. Can I be pregnant even though my tubes are tied?

I feel movement under my left rib cage. As it moves I can see it stick out. Can I be pregnant even though my tubes are tied?

Possible: It is possible that you are pregnant. Every method of contraception has a failure rate including tubal ligation but, if you have been having regular periods it isn't likely. By the time you feel and see movement at the edge of your ribs, you are close to your due date. It is more likely that this is a GI issue. See your PCP for an exam in order to find out for sure what is going on. Good luck. ...Read more

Can I still get pregnant if my tubes was tie clip in burn?

Can I still get pregnant if my tubes was tie clip in burn?

LigationOrLitigation: Well, anything is possible here on God's Earth. After all, I made it through medical school! But I must say, it's unlikely and depends on a series of unlikely circumstances. Studies vary but 1 in a thousand is a nice round number so I wouldn't worry too much. Of course I bet you're a one-in-a-million woman so your chances will be low. If you're super paranoid, then also use another form of control ...Read more

Can i get pregnant with my tubes tied they aren't clipped or burned

Yes, : Yes, it is possible to get pregnant after a tubal ligation (having your tubes tied). It is rare and unlikely, but definitely possible. If you do get pregnant after a tubal ligation, there is a higher chance that it is an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy that is located in the fallopian tubes). An ectopic pregnancy can be a medical emergency and requires immediate medical attention. If you have a positive pregnancy test or think you are pregnant after a tubal ligation - you should contact your obgyn or primary care physician right away so they can monitor you and determine if it is a pregnancy in the uterus (normal) or a pregnancy in the tubes (ectopic pregnancy and not normal). I hope this helps! ...Read more
