Pregnant Tube Tied
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Not impossible: Tubes can reconnect and a normal pregnancy can result. More likely is that the sperm will get through but the fertilized egg can't resulting in an ectopic pregnancy, which is dangerous and a medical emergency. On the other hand, if you want to get pregnant your options are a tubal reconstruction (rarely done these days) or an in vitro ("test tube") conception. ...Read more

Can I be pregnant I got my tube tie 5 years ago but I missed my period in december and still have not came on?
Yes: Tubal ligation is very effective at preventing pregnancy but no contraceptive method is 100% effective. Therefore, if your cycle is delayed you should check a pregnancy test or even see you gynecologist for blood pregnancy test because if you are pregnant there is a chance it could be a tubal pregnancy and that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. ...Read more
Theoretically: Never, but it has been known to happen once in a very rare blue moon usually a longer time ago when tubes really were tied. Now a portion is taken out and the ends totally sealed so they can not find their way back to each other not like the older surgical method of just snipping where the ends sometimes remet. Now only if the doc made a huge mistake could you get pregnant. ...Read more

No: Generally no.Get a more detailed 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
Highly unlikely: It's not impossible; but I would say very unlikely. It never hurts to take a quick pregnancy test and confirm it with another one about a week or so later. ...Read more

Unlikely.....but: Tubal ligation (tubes tied) and 41 years old makes it very unlikely you will get pregnant. But nothing is 100% or 0% in the world of medicine. There is a very small possibility that an ovary could be fertilized someplace in the tubal duct, less likely in the uterus, presuming that the surgeon did an adequate ligation. ...Read more

My tubes are tied and burnt yet my period came on three times this month can I be preganant im in my 40's?
Possible: Pregnancy is possible in your 40's but, after a tubal ligation, there are more likely causes of having 3 periods in 1 month than pregnancy. These include infections, abnormal cervical cells, 2 periods and bleeding mid-cycle due to ovulation, annovulatory bleeding, medicines, and several other diseases. You need to see your PCP or GYN for a full history and exam. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I had my tubes cut tied an burnt I missed my period for three months an the one I had was for three day I cry alot an very sleepy could I be pregnet?
Probably not, but: It sounds like a good idea to try to see a doctor for a full exam. You need to discover why your period is so off schedule and correct any problems they find. Also - lots of crying and feeling very sleepy may mean you'd benefit from a therapist. Someone to talk to may help you w/ depression and even refer for medication if needed. You'll probably sleep better too. Call for a visit ASAP, okay? ...Read more
