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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Can your tubes heal after a tubal ligation where your tubes are burnt and can you still get pregnant ?
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
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.

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.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Uncommon but yes: It is true that you can still get pregnant after your tubes are tied. But having tubes tied is one of the most effective birth control. Despite the superb protection, if your period is late, shorter or lighter than normal, or you feel pregnant, always do a pregnancy test to check. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
