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

Can i be pregnant after getting my tubes tied. My menstrual cycle typically last 3 to 4 days and it only lasted for 1 day, i'm in my late 30's and had my tubes tied alittle over 2 years ago, is it possible that i might be pregnant.

Even : Even though there is a 1% chance of pregnancy after having your tubes tied, there are more likely causes of a missed or light period depending on your age and other symptoms. Reasons for a missed period besides pregnancy are stress, poor diet, extreme exercise, weight loss, hormone imbalance such as with thyroid disorders or polycystic ovarian syndrome and even peri-menopause. You should take a pregnancy test just to be certain you are not pregnant. If you are still not sure why your period has become irregular, you should give your ob/gyn doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more
