Can you get pregnant while having your tubes clamped?

Yes but <1%: I assume you mean after, not "while". Tubal sterilization is not infallible so we quote less than 1% failure rate eg getting pregnant despite procedure. Rate of "failiure" depends upon several different factors. Check out http://www.Cnn.Com/2008/health/expert.Q.A/12/22/pregnancy.After.Ligation.Shu/index.Html for more info. ...Read more

Gynecology: Tying the fallopian tubes to inhibit the chance of pregnancy does not in any way mess with the internal hormones or menstrual cycles and a female will continue to ovulate.

Can you get pregnant if your tubes have been tied?

Need surgery or IVF: You need either a surgical tubal ligation reversal or IVF - In Vitro Fertilization. Surgery can have high tubal patency rates (70% chance at least one tube stays open) but a higher chance of a tubal (ectopic) pregnancy. IVF may get you pregnant faster. The decision is affected by your age, your partner's sperm (get a semen analysis for him even if you have kids together). See a MD who does both. ...Read more

My tubes are tied and Burt it's been almost eighteen years now since it's been done can I get pregant ?

Maybe, but...: Getting tubes tied (tubal ligation) is permanent, and done for women who will never want to get pregnant again in the future (meaning a permanent decision of no more pregnancies, forever). Tubes are not meant to be "uncut." In rare occasions a couple can save up money to harvest eggs laparoscopically, fertilize them into embryos, and implant them into the uterus... but that shall be the exception. ...Read more

How long does it take for your tubes to grow back together if your tubes are tied an cut how many years. My tubes was tied n cut on feb.17 2010

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
