In brief: PG w Tubes Tied

Maybe is the best answer. The failure rate for tubal ligation is about 1% and the risk depends on surgery technique.
If you want to get get pg then reversal surgery or ivf is required. Success depends on female age, other fertility factors like sperm quality, type of ligation, length of tubes. Ivf prob better if you are older since surgery requires 1-2 yrs to work. You need consult for details.

In brief: Yes

I had a patient who had history of bilateral tubal ligation, but she got pregnant few years later. However, the chance of pregnancy after tubal ligation is very low.
It is important to know that if pregnancy after tubal ligation, you will have increased risk of tubal pregnancy. It will be important to monitor with you OB doctor if pregnancy diagnosed.
