In brief: Approx. 1.5%

After a perfectly performed laparoscopic tubal ligation, the risk of pregnancy is approx.
1.5% at 12 months out. This compares to a risk of pregnancy of 0.05% at 12 months with the essure method of permanent birth control (according to the essure literature). Hope this helps.

In brief: 0.3%

1/300 is typically quoted after bilateral tubal ligation, with increased risk for ectopic implantation should pregnancy occur.
