What would be the odds of a woman who had uterus ablation, tubal ligation getting pregnant when she/partner used perfect withdrawal and Plan B in 24hr?

What would be the odds of a woman who had uterus ablation, tubal ligation getting pregnant when she/partner used perfect withdrawal and Plan B in 24hr?

Very little chance: Tubal ligation by itself has a failure rate of 1in300 to 500. Ablation, while not a method of birth control destroys the lining where the pregnancy would implant. Unless your ablation/tubal ligation was done less than 6 weeks ago I would guess the chance is more like 1in500 or less. I tell my patients no unprotected sex until 6 weeks out from tubal ligation. ...Read more

Can a woman who has had a tubal ligation nine years ago become pregnant? What are some of the signs?

Can a woman who has had a tubal ligation nine years ago become pregnant? What are some of the signs?

Yes: The chance of getting pregnant after a tubal ligation is low but not zero. According to one study, the failure (pregnancy) rate can be as high as 5.5% over 10 years. This means that if 100 women had this procedure 5-6 would get pregnant over the next 10 years. Of course, the risk of pregnancy depends on the type of procedure done.

The signs are the same as without a tubal ligation. ...Read more

Can I be preganant? I hda a tubal ligation 19 years ago and my cycle is 3 weeks late, I have taken two test both results were negetive

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

I am 43 and had a tubal ligation 9 years ago and an ablation 5 years ago. I started spotting and cramping a little today. Is this normal or is pregna?

GYN exam: Given your tubal ligation and ablation, pregnancy is very doubtful. Given your age, I suggest a GYN exam, female hormone and thyroid testing, PAP smear and if needed a uterine sampling biopsy. Please do not ignore these symptoms. You may also require a transvaginal ultrasound. ...Read more
