What can you do if you get pregnant after a tubal ligation?

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.

Yes, : Yes, that is a very good question. It is impossible to know exactly when a woman ovulates. Typically, it is about two weeks after the first day of her last period, but this varies a great deal. If the hormones are "out of whack", so to speak, then ovulation is very difficult to predict. Some women also have irregular periods or even spotting that is not actually their period, which also makes it difficult to predict. Therefore, you are right; unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy on almost any day of the cycle. ...Read more

What are natural ways for a woman to not get pregnant?me and my future husband don't want kids right now. What would be the healthiest thing to do?

Abstinence. But why?: Abstaining from intercourse is the only way to be certain to avoid pregnancy without a form of birth control. That said, if you know you want children later, and still want to be able to enjoy sex other then oral or digital/manual stimulation, why not consider a durable method like a copper IUD? That's as close to natural contraception as you will get. Talk to GYN about your options. ...Read more
