5 doctors agree

In brief: Usually no

I think the failure rate is quoted at 1 in 1000 but i suspect it is much less frequent than that.
I have never seen someone get pregnant that has had a tubal ligation.

Ten year failure rate is about 2%, almost all of them are ectopic pregnancies - and many of those will require surgery.

In brief: Unlikely

It is true that you can still get pregnant after your tubes done.
But having tubes done is one of the most effective birth control. The hysteroscopic essure procedure has a failure rate of only 0.3%.
