Options: First, it's critical to determine asap if the pregnancy is intrauterine, as pregnancy after tubal ligation is highly risky for ectopic (usually tubal) pregnancy. If ectopic, medical or surgical treatment follows; if the pregnancy is intrauterine then decision-making is identical to any other pregnancy.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I am 43 and had a tubal ligation 9 years ago and an ablation 5 years ago.  I started spotting and cramping a little today. Is this normal or is pregna?

GYN exam: Given your tubal ligation and ablation, pregnancy is very doubtful. Given your age, I suggest a GYN exam, female hormone and thyroid testing, PAP smear and if needed a uterine sampling biopsy. Please do not ignore these symptoms. You may also require a transvaginal ultrasound. ...Read more

I'm on my period & now I'm spotting & then I bleed again, is it possible I could be or get pregnant with a tubal ligation?

Nothing is perfect: Having periods or having extra spotting can be normal but at the same time inconvenient and should be investigated by your gynecologist. Someone with a tubal ligation is highly unlikely to get pregnant, but this is always a possibility that needs to be explored. Do not hesitate to get tested. Although bleeding means that it's unlikely you're pregnant. ...Read more
