Pregnancy: Having tubal sterilization is not like tying your laces where they can be "untied".

How will you know if your tubes came untied and I want my tubes to be untied?

Tubes . .: Technically speaking, you would not know, because the only symptom that your tubes had 'untied' would be if you got pregnant. The reason that tubes are tied in the first place is to prevent all future pregnancies, so very RARELY do they just 'untie' on their own, because the way it is done is very thorough. You would need to see your Ob/GYNE for further evaluation. Best of luck. ...Read more

Can your tubes untied from haveing hard sez?

Nope!: I assume you're asking if your tubal ligation (permanent birth control) can be reversed or undone during great sex. The answer is no, so go enjoy sex as much as you want, vigorous or otherwise. On the other hand, there is a known failure rate for tubal ligation, like any procedure, so while you can't "untie" your tubes, you can still get pregnant at 2-10 per 1, 000 women (http://goo.Gl/0r6s0w). ...Read more
