Can i get pregnant after having my tubes clamped?

Yes: The simple answer is yes. You can have the 'clamps' removed and the tubes re-anastomosed (put the cut ends of the tubes back together). Unfortunately, the pregnancy rate is lower than someone who has not had their tubes previously 'clamped'. Additionally, there is an increased risk of ectopic tubal pregnancy (pregnancy in the tube). ...Read more

Can you get pregnant while having your tubes clamped?

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. Check out http://www.Cnn.Com/2008/health/expert.Q.A/12/22/pregnancy.After.Ligation.Shu/index.Html for more info. ...Read more
