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.

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
