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

Yes, but: Pregnancy is done by "in vitro" or "ivf", but it's extremely rare to happen the natural way because the egg can't get into the uterus the natural way. ...Read more

Yes: I'm assuming you mean you had a tubal ligation. The likelihood of pregnancy after tubal ligation is not zero (no birth control is perfect). Take a home pregnancy test, if positive, see OB as soon as possible. If negative, you are not pregnant. ...Read more

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 more
