In brief: Pregnancy

Pregnancy! and women who become pregnant after a tubal ligation have a higher risk of an ectopic pregnancy, which is where the pregnancy is outside the uterus (usually in the tube) and is very dangerous.

The only symptom of this would pregnancy.
You may be able to determine if your tubal ligation is reliable or not by having a procedure called an HSG (hysterosalpingogram) which can determine whether your tubes are blocked or open.
