Can You Get Pregnant With Your Tubes Being Tied
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. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
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
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes but <1%: I assume you mean after, not "while". Tubal sterilization is not infallible so we quote less than 1% failure rate eg getting pregnant despite procedure. Rate of "failiure" depends upon several different factors.

Need surgery or IVF: You need either a surgical tubal ligation reversal or IVF - In Vitro Fertilization. Surgery can have high tubal patency rates (70% chance at least one tube stays open) but a higher chance of a tubal (ectopic) pregnancy. IVF may get you pregnant faster. The decision is affected by your age, your partner's sperm (get a semen analysis for him even if you have kids together). See a MD who does both. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tubal ligation: The failure rate of tubal ligation is 1 in 300. The procedure doesn't stop your periods. In fact it has nothing to do with your periods although sometimes I do a tubal and endometrial ablation at the same time. However, the more your surgeon does to your tube the more likely it will fail. I would never burn, cut, tie and clip. I just do one, so i don't get a tubal fistula. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possible: If your tubal failed you can get pregnant. But a tubal does not stop periods. ...Read more
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
No: Having periods when tubes are tied is no wonder, because your uterus normally responds to the stimulation from the ovaries and tubes play no role in that. Tubes are just channels through which the egg cell will travel. A properly performed tubal ligation carries no risk of pregnancy. I bet you have heard anecdotal rare stories - yeah, yeah, yeah, those happen, 1:1000000. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Absolutely: Blocked tubes is the reason ivf was invented, and ivf is often a better approach than a surgical tubal ligation reversal. See a specialist (reproductive endocrinogy / infertility or rei md) who offers both options to assess your individual situation. Workup includes checking your partner's sperm (semen analysis) even if he's the father of your kids, and checking your egg supply. Best wishes. ...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. 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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes, but uncommon: One can get pregnant after having tubal sterilizaiton, but it is uncommon (< 1%). If one suspects being pregnant after having tubal sterilization, important to do pregnancy test and if positive, notify md immediately due to concern of ectopic pregnancy in the tube, which can be potentially life-threatening. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Unless the tubal failed the failure rate should be low if the tubal was done correctly, to prove if your tubes are blocked your obgyn can send you for an hsg which is an xray to show that or not, if tubes are blocked and u wnat pregnancy they may or may not be able to reverse the tubal or you will need in vitro fert if u miss a period do a blood preg test as if + could be an ectopic or an iup. ...Read more
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
Aka oviduct, uterine tube, or salpinx. It is basically a small tube connecting between the ovary and the uterus. This tube carries the eggs from the ovary area to the unterus. This is the tube that is cut/tied-up/or burned in women having the tuboligation procedure for permanent birth control purpose. Have ...Read more
