Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Does a woman with tubal ligation recently would be able to get pregnant by any chance? Does this ever happend before in someone or not?  And if it happens did she will be able to have the baby or not?

If : If a tubal ligation is properly performed the success rate is greater than 99%. While success rates vary slightly with different techniques, subsequent uterine pregnancy is rare and pregnancies that do occur are more likely to occur in the tube and can be life-threatening. Women who suspect that they are pregnant after a tubal ligation should be evaluated immediately. Women who change their minds about pregnancy after a tubal ligation may be able to conceive with in vitro fertilization (ivf) or, less commonly now, surgery to re-attach the tubes (reanastomosis). ...Read more
