In brief: Quite possibly
You may still have an excellent chance of pregnancy with ivf, and/or you might be a candidate for tubal anastomosis ('tubal reversal.
') how good your chances are can depend on many factors besides the tubal ligation; a reproductive endocrinologist can help you learn more about these options.

In brief: Pregnancy post tubal
The chance to conceive after a successful tubal requires that the woman either have a tubal reversal (success depends on the length of viable tube left after sterilization), or to undergo ivf.
The first case requires an operative procedure, and the second requires stimulation of the ovaries, egg collection and embryo transfer. Either may not be covered by your health insurance plan.

In brief: Absolutely
In vitro fertilization is certainly possible after a tubal ligation.
Furtherrmore, some tubal ligations can be surgically reversed. Ivf is typically recommended and should be very successful in these circumstances.
