In brief: No
When your tubes have been tied (successfully) , the egg and sperm can't get together in the tube where fertilization occurs.
Insemination just gets the sperm into the uterus. After a tubal, the options for pregnancy are tubal reversal surgery and in vitro. In vitro takes the eggs out of the ovary with an ultrasound and needle and mixes them in the lab with sperm.
