Can a woman who has had a tubal ligation nine years ago become pregnant?  What are some of the signs?

Yes: The chance of getting pregnant after a tubal ligation is low but not zero. According to one study, the failure (pregnancy) rate can be as high as 5.5% over 10 years. This means that if 100 women had this procedure 5-6 would get pregnant over the next 10 years. Of course, the risk of pregnancy depends on the type of procedure done.

Can a person get pregnant by artificial insemination if they've had their tubes tied?

No: When your tubes have been tied (successfully) , the egg and sperm can't get together in the tube where fertilization occurs. Insemination just gets the sperm into the uterus.

In vitro takes the eggs out of the ovary with an ultrasound and needle and mixes them in the lab with sperm. ...Read more

Hi i have had 2 births and 5 termination surgical & non-surgical. I would like to know how many times can a woman have a termination in her life.

Hi i have had 2 births and 5 termination surgical & non-surgical. I would like to know how many times can a woman have a termination in her life.

While many will argue that abortioon is a woman's right, it seems more careful thought about trying to use some effective birth control is a better way to go. Ultimately the decision is yours. ...Read more

The risks/benefit analysis will then be discussed with you. Bring a good friend for this discussion. The novasure is very effective at slowing down menstrual symptoms. ...Read more
