In brief: About 1:300
So about one in 300 couple can conceive after a tubal ligation or vasectomy.
If a woman conceives after a tubal, there is a much higher chance of a tubal pregnancy, so it is very important to see your doctor quickly.

In brief: Depends
Depends on type of tubal - the method dictates the failure rate.
Your doc should have given you that information as part of your pre-op discussion. Separate issue is your age - at 45, your fertility is reduced just based on age, independent of your means of contraception.
