BTL is forever: If your fallopian tubes were cut, you had a bilateral tubal ligation, then you do not expect them to grow back together. Tubal ligation is a permanent sterilization procedure.
Sometimes, you can do surgery to reattach the tubes. And sometimes, rarely, the surgery fails and you can get pregnant.
Most of the time, if you want to be pregnant, ivf would be necessary. ...Read more

No: Once you have had a tubal ligation the only treatment is putting the tubes back together surgically.

I am having pregnancy symptoms with a tubal ligation. could it menopause? i am only 26.

I am having pregnancy symptoms with a tubal ligation. could it menopause? i am only 26.

Symptoms: Hi. No symptom is specific for any one condition or disease, and likewise, no condition or disease can be diagnosed by a symptom. Pregnancy after a BTL is vanishingly rare, so that should not be assumed based on symptoms. 26 is very young for menopause, but certainly not impossible. However, pregnancy and menopause symptoms have little, if any, overlap. Not a bad idea to talk with your gyn. ...Read more

I'm 39 and had a tubal ligation 14 years ago. I have a lot of pregnancy symptoms. Could these be possible or premenopausal symptoms instead?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors 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
