Can you get an ectopic pregnancy after your tubes are tied?

Can you get an ectopic pregnancy after your tubes are tied?

Yes, it's possible: Ectopic pregnancy, which is a pregnancy located outside of the normal location in the uterus, is possible after a tubal ligation procedure. However, the risk of any pregnancy, including ectopic pregnancy, is less than 1% (meaning 99 out of every 100 women who get their tubes tied will not get pregnant again, without in-vitro or other special techniques). ...Read more

Can you become pregnant after after you get your tubes tied?

Can you become pregnant after after you get your tubes tied?

Always possible: Tubal ligations are not 100% effective. If the tubal ligation was done at delivery it may be a little less effective. Never say never in medicine. I have a patient who became pregnant many years after her tubal ligation. It is always a possibility although not as likely.Tubal ligations are generally 99% effective. ...Read more

How can you get a period if both fallopian tubes are removed?

How can you get a period if both fallopian tubes are removed?

Not in the loop: Normal menstruation depends on 1) a funtioning endometrium, 2) an open cervix, and 3) a hormonal sequence (estrogen followed by progestin, then progestin withdrawal) from the ovaries in response to timed hypothalamic/pituitary signals. Thus, a woman needs a working uterus, endometrium, ovaries, and pituitary to have a period. Notice the fallopian tubes are not part of the loop. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant if your tubes are tied clipped and burned?

Can you get pregnant if your tubes are tied clipped and burned?

Unlikely : Although no sterilization is 100%, pregnancy is unlikely. The failure rate can be from 1:1,000 to 3,500 depending on the type of procedure performed. If you have symptoms though, check a urine preg test ASAP. You have a very high risk of ectopic if your procedure fails. If you want a normal pregnancy, tubal reversals are possible vs in-vitro if needed. Talk to your Doc and trust your TL. ...Read more

Can you become pregnant with your tubes tied?

Can you become pregnant with your tubes tied?

Yes: Fallopian tube ligations/cautery/clipping does have a small faliure rate based upon the method used to alter the tube. Also, many tubal ligation failures are ectopic pregnancies as the sperm can get to the egg, but the fertilized ovum can't get back through a partially obstructed tube to implant in the uterus and will "stick" wherever it gets "stuck". ...Read more
