Had my tubes clamped last January.. Now had very light period only 2 days long. And am having pregnancy symptoms... Could I be pregnant?

Unlikely, but...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Pregnancy rare: It is extremely rare to get pregnant after a bilateral tubal ligation, especially current technique - which includes cutting, cauterizing, then clipping tubes. Your symptoms may be due to hormonal changes. However, if having unprotected sex recently, and you are anxious, you can check a home pregnancy test to reassure yourself. Take Care! ...Read more
