Tubal ligation in 1996. Mirena five years ago. I am having pregnancy symptoms. Is it possible to still get pregnant? I had the mirena put in because of a couple ectopic pregnancies after the tubal ligation. I just hit the five year mark on the mirena.

In brief: Possible,

Possible, yes, though not very likely.
As you probably know, ectopic pregnancy can be very dangerous, so if you are having abdominal pain, it would be a good idea to see your doctor right away. Obviously, a home pregnancy test that is positive would require a doctor visit.
