I Had My Tubes Tied In 2000 Can I Still Get Pregant
Expensive: The failure rate of a laparoscopic tubal ligation is 1/200, but I would expect it to have failed by now if you have been having unprotected sex since 2009. IVF will get you a baby if you have changed your mind, but that is expensive. This is why I try really hard to convince 20-somethings to use and IUD or Implant for contraception; they are more effective and reversible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: The reason for getting a tubal ligation is permanent sterilization, meaning the woman wants to never get pregnant again. It is a final decision for her. In real life, there are rare cases of pregnancies happening after tubal ligation, so if worried about pregnancy, a woman can do a home pregnancy test. Tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex. ...Read more
No: There is no relationship between having your tubes tied and your periods. Having your tubes blocks the passage way between the ovary and the uterus. This blocks a one cell egg from reaching a one cell sperm. Your hormones continue just how they were before so your periods will not change. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Sterilization: Tubes tied means that a portion of the tubes were removed, its not an actual tying of the tubes. You would have to get a reanastomosis of the tubes which means approximating the two ends. ...Read more
Unlikley, but yes: See link:http://www.webmd.com/sex/birth-control/tubal-ligation-and-tubal-implants "There is a slight risk of becoming pregnant after tubal ligation. This happens to about 5 out of 1,000 women after 1 year. After a total of 5 years following tubal ligation, about 13 out of 1,000 women will have become pregnant. " ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had my period July 31st through August 6th and started again I do have my tubes tied what can be the problem. I got my tubes tied in 2010?
Well: You do not state your age. Now having your tubes tied does not stop the periods. So it seems your periods are presently irregular. If you are young take a pregnancy test first. It is always possible to just be having an irregular period. But give a good gynecological history for more help ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
LigationOrLitigation: Well, anything is possible here on God's Earth. After all, I made it through medical school! But I must say, it's unlikely and depends on a series of unlikely circumstances. Studies vary but 1 in a thousand is a nice round number so I wouldn't worry too much. Of course I bet you're a one-in-a-million woman so your chances will be low. If you're super paranoid, then also use another form of control ...Read more
Depends: The chances of successfully reversing a tubal ligation depend on how they were ligated ("tied") in the first place. Ligations that use clips can sometimes be successfully reversed. However, tubal ligation is generally understood to be a form of sterilization. I recommend consulting your ob/gyn and considering alternate forms of having children (e.g., in vitro fertilization, adoption, surrogate). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
