Less than 2%: Most people quote a pregnancy risk of 1-2% per year following tubal ligation, but this in part depends on how your doctor did the tubal. It's not impossible to become pregnant, but it's not common either. You don't say how you got pregnant in 2007, spontaneous of had your tubal reversed?

It's possible: Tubal ligation does have a failure rate associated with it. Various studies give different numbers, but it's generally quoted as about 1 in 250 woman can get pregnant after a tubal.

Options: First, it's critical to determine asap if the pregnancy is intrauterine, as pregnancy after tubal ligation is highly risky for ectopic (usually tubal) pregnancy.

Following this, you could consider a second ligation or another form of permanent sterilization. ...Read more

If you are having pregnancy symptoms, take a home pregnancy test and then see your doc for further evaluation. ...Read more
If you have had a tubal, you are not going to get pregnant naturally.
If you see an infertility doc, they can stimulate your ovaries and remove eggs to fertilize. These can then be inserted into your uterus. It is a "procedure" for sure, but maybe not considered a surgery. Donor eggs could be used as well if you wanted to avoid the ovary stimulation and egg retrieval procedure. See your doc ...Read more
Is it possible to get pregnant after a tubal ligation that was done 21 years ago if you and your partner engage in unprotected sex?
Yes: I don't know the percentages (presumably extremely low), but I know it is possible that occasionally ligations fail. Possibly an ObG will chime in here with statistics. Do you feel pregnant? Take a test. Just askin'? Talk it over with your doctor if you are worried, but if you have had unprotected sex over the intervening 21 years with the same person it is extremely unlikely. ...Read more
Yes: Women can still have good success rates with a reversal of a tubal ligation. They depend on three factors: 1. Skill of the surgeon, 2. Length of tubal segments remaining, and 3. Age of the patient. In skilled hands, the surgery is safe and the risk of an ectopic is less than 5%. Ivf is also an option but generally costs a lot more. At 49, pregnancy rates at less than 1%. Hope this helps. ...Read more
