I got a tubal ligation 3 years ago and I want to know is it possible for them to come untied on their own or can I still get pregnant?

I got a tubal ligation 3 years ago and I want to know is it possible for them to come untied on their own or can I still get pregnant?

Extremely rare: The tubes are usually cut and then cauterized to prevent you getting pregnant as well as leaving the possibility of ever re-attaching. The chances of both sides of the tube re-opening, then finding each other to fuse together and become patent would be EXTREMELY rare.

I have had a tubal ligation done eight years ago I was wondering is it possible still get pregnant? Because I seem to be having pregnancy symptoms.

I have had a tubal ligation done eight years ago I was wondering is it possible still get pregnant? Because I seem to be having pregnancy symptoms.

Tubals can fail: Not very often but easy to check a urine preg test, if - and u are still worried see your gyn for a blood preg test which will be + a few days before the missed period and if u are preg- hopefully not - your obgyn needs to follow u closely since u would be more at risk for a tubal (ectopic pregnancy) due to the fact you had a tubal and the tubes were damaged by the tubal.

Can I get pregnant after a tubal ligation 38 days still waiting for period?

15 days late on period. Tubal ligation done in 2007. What else can cause this? Can I still get pregnant?

15 days late on period. Tubal ligation done in 2007. What else can cause this? Can I still get pregnant?

Unlikely: It is unlikely that you are pregnant but a pregnancy test should rule it out. You may have failed to ovulate which might prolong your period since no Progesterone would be produced to mature your uterine lining so that it would shed. If this is indeed so your late period could be scant but somewhat prolonged.

I had an endometrail ablation and a tubal ligation about 2years ago, can I still get pregnant?

Unlikely: A tubal ligation is a highly effective contraceptive method and the proper choice when an endometrial ablation is performed. The chances of pregnancy having had those procedures is extremely remote and you should live your life, as you see fit, with the confidence gained from an improved menstrual flow and a highly effective contraceptive.

Probably not: The requirement for the dye test has faded because the essure has been shown to be quite successful if done by a doctor that knows how to do it.

Can I still get pregnant after 3. 4 yrs after tubal ligation (clamps) without reversal or without in vitro fertilization. Want a child but not surgery?

Can I still get pregnant after 3. 4 yrs after tubal ligation (clamps) without reversal or without in vitro fertilization. Want a child but not surgery?

Informed Consent: No. Your tubes were not just clamped. They were cut, burned, scarred and made impossible to have any sperm or egg contact. This was very well explained to you when you chose to have your tubal ligation. There is little chance that surgery can repair this. Please discuss with your ob.

What are my chances of getting pregnant if I have had a uterine ablation, tubal ligation but get that reversed? I still have regular monthly periods.

What are my chances of getting pregnant if I have had a uterine ablation, tubal ligation but get that reversed? I still have regular monthly periods.

Not recommended: Unfortunately, the chances are not good. Tubals can be reversed successfully but ablation permanently changes the uterine lining although pregnancy is unlikely, it's not impossible.

Can I get pregnant if I had a tubal ligation?

Yes!: Depending how it was done sometimes the surgeon can reconnect your tubes. Also, assuming your uterus is intact there is always the possibility of in vitro fertilization where some of your eggs are collected, fertilized with your sweethearts sperm and then transplanted into your uterus.

Do people ever get pregnant after a tubal ligation?

Yes: It depends on the method used to ligate your tubes, but roughly one percent (1%) failure rate is in the ballpark for most methods currently in use. Failed tubal ligation can result not only in intrauterine pregnancy but ectopic pregnancy, which is usually tubal.

Can I get pregnant 3 months after a tubal ligation?

Can I get pregnant 3 months after a tubal ligation?

It is possible: Not supposed to happen but a tubal can fail, depends what type you had, I assume you did not have an in office essure tubal because with an essure you must use birth control for 3 months and then go for an xray to make sure your tubes are blocked because it takes 3 months for the tubes to become blocked with that particular method.
