In brief: No
Having the tubes tied is a form of contraception.
It prevents the egg from reaching the uterus by blocking its transit down the fallopian tubes. So, you cannot get pregnant if your tubes are tied.

In brief: Tubal ligation
To achieve a pregnancy after a tubal ligation an in vitro fertilization process is usually required.
After embryo transfer, the pregnancy progresses just as any other pregnancy progresses after implantation. The risk of miscarriage is still present in the first trimester.

In brief: Yes, two ways
Women who have had their tubes tied can have a normal pregnancy in two ways: 1) reversal surgery, allowing natural conception, and 2) in vitro fertilization (ivf) where eggs obtained from the ovaries (through the vagina) after treatment with fertility drugs are fertilized in the laboratory to create embryos that are transferred directly into the uterus through the cervix, bypassing the tubes.
