can you get pregnant after getting your tubes tied and burned ?

I had my tubes tied and burned almost 3 years ago. Now I have missed almost two periods. I have the cramping, lower back aches, hot and cold spells, mood swings. Everything for a period but nothing is happening. Can I be pregnant ? Or do you have a idea on what is going on ? I have a doctors appointment tomorrow. But I can't wait. i am going nuts waitting. Can you help me out on some answers ?

A pregnancy test will tell you if you're pregnant. Have you done one?

The U.S. Collaborative Review of Sterilization (CREST) found the failure rate for tubal ligation (all occlusion methods) to be 1.85% after 10 years.

for some reason, they say that if you get your tubes tied during a C-section they tend to fail at a slightly higher rate.

since you only had your tubes tied less than 3 years ago, Id say chances of pregnancy are lower.  The longer its been, the better chance they come undone.  That said, I have a friend who had her tubes tied and got pregnant twice afterwards, however, they were "tubal" pregnancies... it all depends on the method and the expertise of the doctor doing the tubal.  

Again, Id say the chances are slim, but it's good you have a dr. appt tomorrow.  Here's a pretty informative "article" on tubals:

I am just about to have my 2nd child and I am also having my tubes tied afterwards...what I was todl by several doc.( I wanted to talk to more then 1) was that nothing is 100% but it is 99.9% effective...1 in 400 women become prego after having this done.
Most of the time if you do end up getting prego it is a ectopic one and you have to have it ended :( For your safety.
A prego test should help you to find out what is going on. They told me if I ever though I was prego to get a test and call my doc. to double check.
Hope that helps some.

Not from personal experience, but not one, but TWO of my employees have gotten pregnant after having their tubes tied.  Weird statistics....
Blank
Avatar_n_tn
Actually the statistics are closer to 1/150 people get pregnant after tubal ligations.  Extremely high failure rate.  Most end up as ectopic pregnancies.

A women that I work with had her tubes tied clip and burned she only have 4 boys and to her miracuosly miracle she had a pin hole in her tubes and now has a little girl with her husband so it can happen. Also my aunt works at the hospital and been there for over 20 years she works in the baby ward so you know she has seen some things. My aunt said that they are delivering babies from women who had their tubes tied clip and burned. God works in mysterious ways uhh!

I had my tubes clipped March 2007, I am now 6 or 7 weeks pregnant, I wish they had at least a one year warranty on this. I'm 37 and already have 3 kids, the baby is starting school this year... My hubby is the one "glowing" right now, he is very happy, wish I could say the same for myself... but life has it's way of surprising us sometimes, I just wish it would of been with a winning lottery ticket....

I to had my tubes tied in 2005, after a c-section delivery and would love nothing more than to get prego again I knew I had made the wrong choice before I left the hospital! It seems the ones who regret it are the ones who will never have that oops and become preg. and the ones who do not want another child are the ones who get the oops. Who knows what my future brings but does anyone have a recomendation on a Doctor who performs TR? I live in Tn but am willing to travel a little.

Well...I'm 7 weeks 4 days pregnant and I started going threw miscarriage yesterday. The baby was find last week...had a heartbeat and all, but it stopped growing and no more heartbeat, started bleeding a little and cramping. Doc said it should all come out in the next couple of days, if not, will need to get it removed...nice emotional roller coaster ride.

Well Jennymum, I think at this point everything is possible. I've been reading and reading about getting pregnant after a tubal legation for weeks now, and reading testaments  of so many women, and basically don't take the word of a Doctor or surgeon for granted. They might have the big diploma in their pockets but it seems that the body has a mind of his own. Our instinct of survival and the women reproduction system is stronger then any technology existing at this point.

BTW: From what I gathered, the chances of getting pregnant are greater if you had a legation done via a c-section...

Get a home pregnancy test done and good luck to you!

Thanks flowers78,

I'm just waiting on what mother nature has in store for me at this point. Will see.

I've never gained weight when I was pregnant, no kidding. My pants got tighter (and are) at the waist, but that's it. I always weighed less after giving birth then when I actually got pregnant... BUT I would gain 50 lbs after the delivery just eating the stress out!

FYI on the Geritol:

Will the use of Geritol® increase my sex drive or fertility?
There's no evidence that Geritol® can increase fertility and we don't make that claim. We're not sure how the rumor got started, but there's no truth to it.

I dont know I am in the same boat a little, I had my tubes tied I thought in 2001 { just found out that they where cut,tied and burnt} a year ago in Feb my period stopped for 9 months for no reason, went to the doctor she said I was fine and she gave me pills to bring it on which in 30 days it came back. My period was normal again, maybe not as heavy, it was coming like clock work again. I could tell you the day it was coming and it would. I was to get my period on Feb 28th and it never came and still hasnt. I took 2 pregnancy test praying for postive but after 5 days late negative after 9 days late still negative. Havent tested anymore but have signs that I could be pregnant. Just to stressed out to test again its driving me crazy, in case you ask I am only 41 years old dont think its change of life.

I had my tubes tied, burnt, etc in 1997 after a c-section with my youngest son.  Since then and before then I had never missed a period, always regular and on time.  BUT, I had a period in February, missed in March and haven't had one so far this month either.  I am now 3 going on 4 weeks late.  I have taken a home pregnancy test and it came back negative.  Now, I'm going to the doctor.  What's the odds of being pregnant after so long?  In the back of my mind I'm hoping I am, but I know in my heart there's no way.  I am going to the bathroom more often, eating a little more than usual and getting a sick feeling from time to time.  But I also know that these symptoms can come along with wishful thinking.  Any info would be great!

Hello everyone,

I too had my tubes cut, tied, and burned in September of 2002.  Within the last week I have been having a lot of nausea..not vomiting, being really tired, tender breast..I am only a week late for my period but I am never late.  I am kind of concerned.  I have three children of my own and three step children.  I do not really want another child but would gladly welcome one.  I can not believe that people actually get pregnant after having their tubes cut, tied and burned.

Can you have a reversal after you had your tubes tied and burned? If so whats the cost? I have 4 children and I dont want anymore right now but in maby 4-5 years i would maby like to have one more, so i was just wondering. Another question thats been on my mind if your tubes are tied and burned  having sex with no birthcontrol pills or no protection at all cant make you pregnant can it.....because we just assumed we didnt need any protection scence there tied...is that right?

I am 32 yrs old, tubes tied after csection of my 2nd child 7/04 (i believe they were clamped, even though the paper I signed said they would be cut & burned).

With my first child I took a pg test ONE day being late & with in secs it turned postive. With my 2nd child I knew before I took the test, sore breasts, craamping, tired, etc. Took a test after ONE day being late & within seconds it turned positive again.

My cycles are about 24-26 days long. I keep track of them at cyclespage.com(log & dates of ovulation & menstration). Within the past 6 months I have started cramping, having sore breasts, fatigued, massive headaches & horrible irritability a week before I start.

According to Cycles Page I should have ovulated between 5/1-5/5 - but I believe I ovulated between 5/8-5/11. (i had very thick discharge one day w/ bad cramping & bloating)  That weekend my hubs & I had sex.

Also on Cycles Page I should have started on 5/18. But have not yet. I know it's only 2 days, but as you see with my other kids I was only 1 day late with them.

I called the dr & they said to take a home pg test. It could be I am irregular this month.

I have cramping, sore breasts, headaches, irritability, etc..........no spotting.

My question(s) I guess are .........if I ovulate later, that will make my period later, right? Just so I understand correctly.

I plan on taking a test on Sunday if I haven't got my period by then. And either way (neg or pos) I plan on making a dr appt  - only because ever since I have had my tubal I have pain during ovulation that brings me to the point of passing out and I need to get back on the birth control to stop that (if no baby).

Do you think I am making the right decision by waiting a week? How late were some of you before you took a test to find out you were prego?

I am 34 and in 2004 I delivered twins and had my tubes tied clipped and burned. I found out around a month and a half  ago that i was pregnant. I have 5 kids, Granted I want another boy (I have 4 girls and only one boy) but my health wont handle it. I was hoping, I know this sounds snobby but I was hoping to pay to have another baby in about 4-5 years. My boyfriend is 8 years older than me and we are not ready to have another baby, he has no kids. My oldest is 16 years old which is my only boy but they are telling me that I have a rip in the sack but I have not miscarried and my boyfriend is not ready so the doctors asked me to have a medical miscarriage. Knowing I am highly against abortion What do I do!!???!!! I am also about to become a, in not so many words a grandmom????

Please give me some advise

But here is the thing ... My husband to be went on a 33 days trip for military reasons in April .. April 12th -May 15 th .. My last Period was on April 21st  . Im I doing the math wrong here , cause there is no way I could of got pregnant while he was gone . But it does not seem normal to me to have leaky breast this soon if I am pregnant . The urge to go to the bathroom is also more frequent . Please someone help me answer these questions I have . Im planning on taking a PT test if I dont get my period within the next week and a half . Thank you all so much for any advice you may have for me .

You decesion is a personal one. But personally speaking I would not advise you to get abortion and no one should force you to get one. It is a life that grows inside of you. If you take your baby's life you can't change your mind and bring it back.

I have  had my tubes tied during a c-section 7 years ago. My youngest is 6 years old who will be turning 7 this year. I was told by my doctor just to continue to have sex and I will get pregnant. Well, I am doing that. I know that I am suppose to be happy for my friends and family that become pregnant. But I am wishing it was me that is telling the good news that I am. I thought about getting my tubes untied but it is so costly. I am willing to try anything to get pregnant. I just miss the idea of caring for a baby and feeling the baby growing in me. Sometimes I am very late with my period but eventually having it. I am try the Geritol to see what happens. I will come back to post.

Hi everyone, I gave birth via c-section in Feb 08, I had my tubes tied, cut, burnt. I breastfeed my baby who is now 6 months old. I have not had a period at all, I did the regular bleeding thing for about 7 weeks after I had her but nothing since then. Last month I began to cramp as if I was having a period, I had a discharge of clear jelly stuff, but no period, what could be wrong with me? Is this normal? Please Help.

In March of 2001, I had my tubes tied after my child.  Its been since then I have never used protection with my love. The first of August we had sex when it was the last days of my period. Sept comes around and I have an abnormal period. I have gained a lot of weight for myself in this amount of time. My stomach is swelled and looks just like it would when your preg. I am sleeping about 3 to 4 hrs a day after my children go to school.  I am very fatigue.  Last Saturday afternoon I got sick so bad I didnt stop till that night.  I feel sick almost everyday now. My breast are sore and I just dont know what to do.  I dont have insurance and I dont know if this is possible by having the tubes tied and having an abnormal period. I have not had sex with him since the August time.  I have been to worried. My mood is terrible.  One day happy and the next is bad.  If there is anyone that can help, please let me know.  
Thanks to all and GOD bless all of you....TJ

Hi,  Every stat I've read says the chances are 1-2/1000.  Nothing I've read, even remotely says 1/350 or whatever.  My dr said 1-2/1000 as well.  Where are these other stats coming from?  Thanks.

Anyway i have been trying for 3 going on 4 years to have another baby and i think i just may have didi it!! Im not sure yet.

I am 27 years old have three kids (two from birth and one adopted) When I was 21 I had TL. Which way they did it I have no clue but I do think it was a cut, tie and burned. I have been doing nonstop research the past couple weeks and what I have been finding out is that it's way more then 4/1000 women get pregnant. I have been writing down every women I read about and so far I am at 1938 women have been pregnant with TL being done. Now that's just from the websites I have read that doesn't include those that have no posted, asked questions or gave answers on sites I have not been on. So, I personally think the chances are higher then what the doctors are saying. Plus, I found out from a local clinic is that if you had your TL done before the age of 25-27 you have a higher chance because your body does not stop growing completely until the age of 25-27.
I will say that I started researching because last month I had a very weird period. Spotting, light bleeding and only lasted half the time. So, I thought I'll take a test. It was negative. Then my mom said I might have taken too soon. Since then these are my symptoms.
Nausea, small headaches, lower back ache, bloating, gas, irratation to everyday smells, tired, white discharge,Emotional,moody, nails have grown in the past two weeks like no other, and well just the feeling of not feeling right. I mean I don't feel sick I feel like there's a change in my body. And last night my husband noticed something I didn't and that was I have started holding my stomach like if I was.
He keeps telling me he thinks I am. But, I am not sure. With my two other my armpits would hurt like crazy and that's how I knew I was pregnant but my armpits don't hurt. My boobs do feel pressure but no pain. I am going to wait until 5 days before my period which is the 2nd of November and see what it says. I do know that the more sex you have the higher chance you have. Do take a fact to it that if your man isn't as fertile as you may think he is. It might take a little more. If any of you have questions email me. I have done tremendous research and still doing it until the day I can tell my hubby I am having his BABY!!

I had a tubes clipped and burned on August 18, 1999 the day that I delivered my son via c-section. For the past month, I've been experiencing symptoms of being pregnant: my period had slowed down, nausea, tiredness, not being hungry, back pains, stomach growth, and severe irritability bouts. I finally took a home pregnancy test, and it came back negative. After reading the postings made by everyone, I'm making an appointment to see my doctor because if I'm not pregnant, it could be something else. By the way, I was hoping to be pregnant.

This is very important:  if you have had a tubal ligation and have any reason to believe you are pregnant, please seek medical attention.  If you tested negative on a home pregnancy test but still have symptoms of pregnancy, please be aware that an ectopic pregnancy (outside the uterus, usually in a tube) may not produce normal, high levels of hCG so you may test negative but still be pregnant.  Ectopic pregnancy is VERY dangerous and is actually a leading cause of maternal death in the U.S. because many people don't even realize they are pregnant.

Even if you don't have health insurance, visit Planned Parenthood or a similar low-cost clinic.  An ectopic pregnancy can rupture at any time, and this can be fatal.

Failure rates for tubal ligation vary based on technique used and time since the procedure was performed.  But tubal ligation certainly can fail.  Mine failed less than one month following the surgery.  My surgeon tried to argue that I'd been pregnant at the time of the surgery, until a hysterosalpingogram showed that one side is totally open.  I had an abortion, and will be having a second surgery.  Fortunately, my pregnancy was not ectopic.

Wow!  It's amazing to see how many other women are going through the same thing I have been going through.  I had my tubes cut and burned August 2007.  I already have 3 children but have been feeling "pregnant".  I took a home pregnancy test and it was negative.  My menstrual cycle usualy lasts nor more than 5 days.  Sunday, November 23rd I noticed brown spotting (very brown) when I wiped.  Shortly after a small amount was in my panties but not enough to require protection.  I did put on a pantyliner and there were a few more drops (brown to pink in color) after wiping.  This went on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday morning.  I would even go to bed and wake up and there was nothing on the pantyliner.  On Tuesday afternoon the blood got a little more red but it wasn't alot like my normal period because I am usually very heavy.  This bleeding lasted Tuesday, Wednesday and started tapering off on Thursday, Thanksgiving day.  There was a little of Friday by Saturday and Sunday it turned to brown blood (not alot).  I went to work on Monday morning and had a feeling of nauseau, went to the restroom and there was a light pink discharge.  when I wiped, it was light pink on the tissue.  I had light "menstrual type" cramps in my lower back and I can feel something moving in my stomach.  I also get like a numb feeling on the left side of my abdomen, the same feeling I would get when I was carrying my other children (like when they place a foot or hand in a certain area.)  At night I have heartburn and I get a feeling of naueau off and on during the day.  I don't know that is going on.  Sometimes my hips hurt and I can feel my pelvic area stretching.  I can also feel a pulling on my belly button at times.  My main thing is I don't usually spot before and after my period.  Plus, my periods don't last 8 days either.

My doctor told me when I had my tubes tied back in 2000 that it was a 1/200 chance of still getting pregnant. I even had to sign something stating that I wouldn't sue if I did get pregnant. I haven't gotten pregnant yet, though I did take a test last week because I have felt nauseated for 3 weeks and was worried, only because I am looking for a job and I go to college full time and my husband just ot his BA so he's looking for a better job. If the timing was right, I would be thrilled to have a baby with my husband I have now. I have 2 kids from my last marriage and they are 10 and 8. My now husband has no kids of his own, what better Christmas gift than a positive prego test.

When I had my last child in 1990 I had a tubaligation and I had the same systems you are having now. I realized after a while that I was wasting time and money on pregancy test, my body was ovalating but I was not have my period. I believe it was causing the same system as a pregancy. I would get dizzy, nausea, sleep alot, everything that happened when I was pregnant. It took 5 years for the systems to completely go away.

I am 34 and had my tubes clamped in 02.
I am 3 weeks late. I've had symptons of PG, but Ive chalked them up to the flu, holidays, and stress.

I'm a little scared to take a test. I dont want to be dissappointed.
I am planning on having a reversal in the spring. I found a Dr in N carolina that seems awesome, and their clinic will let you open an 'account' and pay until you are ready to schedule.
Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal....I live in Texas but it is cheaper to go there by almost $2000.
So, no real question, just reading everyones' posts and wanted to say something. Hope the TR info helps!

God Bless all of  you and good luck.

I am 24 years old and when I was 13 I had surgry for endo. And it didn't seem to work so I had it again! I was told I couldn't have kids and was scheduled for my hysto. but I pushed it off so I could go on vacation to Virginia and rescheduled it for when I got back. But while I was on vaction I met my husband and got pregnant. They told me that is was rare b/c of how bad my endo was! But I had a girl who is now 5. They told me if I wanted more to try while I am yound b/c in a couple years I would have to get my hysto. They also said I would probally keep miscarrying and I did once then a couple months after that I got pregnant with my identical twin boys! They are now 2 years old. I am late on my period by a month but I am not going to get a test for awhile b/c stress can cause it and if you keep thinking about it I truley believe your period will wait longer! Try not to stress over it. God works in weird ways and believe me you can't always believe a dr!

Ok I got my tubes only clamped back in 2000 and i am now going on 33!! I was told that I could get pregnant in the long run and I only got clamped in case I wanted more kids bc the Dr. said I was too young to decide if I wanted more or not!!
I absolutely think that I am pregnant and it scares me as my kids are 9 and 11!!! I really do want a baby with the man that I am marrying and they do say the more sexual active you are the better your chances are!!

Any answers for me here?? I wake up and 5 mins later I am sick(ughhh)and periods are not normal at all..or just late!! i was only 24 when I got my tubes clamped so therefore my body wasnt done growing so I dont know!! I feel different too and I notice a little change in me!!

Please if there are any answers out here!!

I am from Canada as well!!

You should go to your doctors office and have them do a blood pregnancy test.  It usually takes one day for the results to come back in.  This will let them know if there is in a fact a baby growing in you.

Quick question that repeats another poster....out of ALL the women who posted pregnancy symptoms after a Tubal Ligation, what ended up happening to you all?

Many of you were going to the doctor for a blood test, what happened? Did ANYONE actually end up pregnant??

If you weren't pregnant, which I must assume many weren't (if any), what were the reasons the doctor gave you? One lady said something about her hormones being out-of-whack.

Seems odd so many people have the same exact problems and most of us wish for the same thing (being pregnant again) [BTW, I am also here for same reasons as most others ;)]

But please, remember when you posted and you were so confused? Please give the rest of us the benefit of your experiences :)

This thread is long and the orginal poster who was scheduled to go to the doctor never answered what happened to here  neither did any of the other posters that were having symptoms... It would be nice if you are posting a comment or question and you find an answer to your own personal question via a doctor you should share the news with us that don't know.
I am 30 and had my tubes cut tied and burned in 06 and I am 2 days late for my period. I am exhausted all the time and sore breast and mood swings and nausea and this thread is long but just more people asking questions and NO ONE answering. Some of you 2008 people must have an answer by now. POST IT! see I'm moody too.

I had my tubes tied after my 3rd baby in September 2008 & I totally regret it! My husband pressured me into doing it! My periods have been weird every month since having them tied. It is a weird side effect of having your tubes tied. I too have taken pregnancy tests in hopes that I was pregnant but no luck, just a really unpredictable period. Ectopic pregnancies are very dangerous and if not caught early on can kill the mother. So getting pregnant now with my tubes tied doesn't sound like such a good idea.

I believe that this thread is getting no posts in response because of two things:  

the original post was long ago, and

the chances are vanishingly slim to get pregnant again after tubal ligation (without surgery), and nobody wants to be the bearer of this discouraging news.

Sometimes it happens that a tubal ligation will fail.  This is rare but might happen especially if the person has clips only, and did not have the tubes cut and cauterized.  Most of the time it cannot and does not happen spontaneously.

We see a lot of really sad posts on this topic, women who feel their marriage will fail without being able to have a baby, women who feel they were tricked into having a tubal ligation, women who were pressured heavily by husbands to do it, often against a background of no money to try to correct the situation surgically.  (I might add, please do not convince yourself that somehow a reversal will automatically solve your problems.  It is a painful surgery to get over and often does not succeed, and sometimes can succeed only so far as to give a woman an ectopic pregnancy and cause her to lose the tube.)   I am sorry to have to be the one who posts this answer.  (Like the other ladies who post regularly on this site, I don't want to be the bearer of sad tidings either.)  But the chances are very, very slim.

There are other ways to get children and even babies into your lives.  There are other ways in the world to find fulfillment.  I pray that each of you gets what you need, and you might surprise yourself by how it comes your way.

If you have other questions about ligation and pregnancy, I think this long thread is going to come down  in a couple of days.  You might start your own thread and post your own separate question.

All the best, dear ladies.  I hope for everything good for you.

I had my tubes cut and burned 6 years ago and have been having similar symptoms. Make sure you go to the doctors because a few of my friends ended up having the same symptoms you are all having and it was due to Fibroid and or Tumors which is what caused a lot of pain during that time of the month. It is normal after have your tubes tied to have these symptoms seems everyone is and not many are pregnant. Every Doctor has different statistics depending on how honest they are. I would love to have one more baby but we shall see. good luck to you all.

The stats for this are extremely varied. From 1-10,000 to 1-100 women have failed tubal ligations. The failure rate is higher if your tubal ligation was performed during a c-section. It also depends on what kind of ligation was performed. If you suspect that you are pregnant and have had a tubal ligation done do NOT hesitate GO to a doctor and tell them what is happening. An ectopic pregnancy is much more likely then a normal pregnancy and presents like a normal until the fetus grows to large usually around 6-8weeks. An ectopic pregnancy can KILL you. Your doctor should perform an ultra sound to confirm ectopic or normal pregnancy. Please go to the doctor is you suspect!

I am going to refer everyone to this newsletter by CREST, with more research on the subject I stumbled upon it and found out that failure rates are much higher then previously thought: http://www.saxecommunications.com/viewpoint/Newsletter.pdf

i just want to stress, yes it is possible to get pregnant after a TL. I know several ppl who have, but the chances are even hire for a tubal pregnancy. If you suspect it, even if the home tests say No, still go to your doctor. The worst you will find out is it could be menopause or a sympathetic pregnancy because you want it so bad, your body is manifesting the symptoms.

reading all of these comments from you ladies is saddening. i had a mirena coil fitted after my 3rd baby was born, he was 3 months at the time, it has been in 15 months now, i thought he would be my last and after 6 pregnancies (lost my first 3) my body had enough. Dh has had a change of heart and we are going to try for 1 more baby. Tonight I go to have the coil removed. I always thought sterilisation was too final, because you just never know what is going to happen. Plus I was only 26 at the time and I think that is very young to say done and dusted to things. So glad i didn't once the coil is out a few months we can try again. I guess I'm saying to any ladies considering having tubes tied etc.... think very carefully, it is a big decision you may later regret! Good luck to all of you that are hoping to again concieve (conceive), i hope you get your wish...like me x

I am 38 years and a mother of 3 ages of 15-9-3. On the next day after the birth of my last I had my tubes tied and burnt. After that my periods came really heavy and lasted to 5 to 6 days. But two month ago I got a very strange periode which started not heavy and stopped on the third day and last 2 days was just spotting very little to none dark. A few days later I discharged with a clear very sticky gell. I took a pregancy test but it came out negative. Then during my last periode two days before I was due I got extremly heavy back pains and burning in my lower back. From since the two months ago periode I am feeling vey nausia. My last periode came even stranger which came for only two days on the third day I had to wipe to see that I was spotting and on the last two days just dark stuff alos next to none. My body feels strange and I still feel like vomiting up all the time and have heartburns. Feel flutering in my stomach but think maybe it is gas. Will wait to see if I get my periode on the 7 of September. And my breast feel a little funny but think my mind is playing tricks on me. But will let you all know what happens. If I am so and if it is not ectopic we will definatley keep it.

I had a tubal in 2004 after the birth of my 5th child.  Now I deeply
regret having a tubal because my family and I would love to have
another addition to our family.  Also, having my tubes tied has caused health issues like severe PMS and increased adult acne.  Back in April, May and June of this year my periods stopped (I am like a clock so this was unusual).  I wanted to be pregnant so badly, I took about 9 home pregnancy tests all saying negative, but I also had pregnancy symptoms and some pain.  I finally went to my ob/gyn for answers.  He explained that it is not uncommon for women to occassionally not ovulate which causes no period to occur and all these symptoms and pain are your body's way of screaming it needs to have a period.  After a negative pregnancy test and ultrasound to rule out cycts or other problems the doctor perscribed medication to cause a period.  It's been
regular ever since.  I just wanted to share my story because the majority
of comments on  this site never share what happened and it would be nice if we all started to help one another with some answers instead of
lots of unanswered questions about what might be going on.  May God
bless all of us with the desire of our hearts to have another child.

Why not get medical help to get pregnant after a tubal ligation?  I too had a tubal ligation and did an IVF cycle and got pregnant.  There's a reason why doctors consider tubal ligations permanent birth control.  It's over 99% effective which is why reversal surgery or IVF is necessary.  If you want a reversal, get it done sooner than later - after a certain age, it's too late and then you go to IVF.  That's what happened to me - I waited until I was 43 to get serious about getting pregnant and learned that it was too late for a reversal.

Dear All,

I did get my menstruation. However I wanted to inform everyone that a very good friend of mine had the same done and did get pregnant. Howvever the pregnancy was etopic and and she did not maintain it. Good news is that she did the reversal surgey and has a very healthy 2 year old daughter. I am thinking about the reversal as I feel like I want another child. To the ladies who are opting to get this surgery please please think it over very carefull because if your not 100 % sure that you do not want anymore kids you will regret it. The reveral is not 100% either. Use other options that you can decide later if you want more children. Thak you all whom have given advice.

I too wish I'd never gotten my tubes tied. I just pray I will have another baby someday. I wanted to do the reversal but husband doesnt want anymore. Hes 51 and has 3 grown kids in their 20's. I'm 37 and have 2 teens and then we have our 3 year old together. I've done lots of research on doctors who do the reversal and I believe Dr. levin is the one! If your serious about having this reversal done then completely check out his website. They even have payment plans. Sounds like I'm advertising for him huh? No not at all, I wish I was a patience of his tho!
If anyone has gotten pregnant after their tubal please write to me, I need some hope.

You couldn't have said it better!!  I too have had the "phantom" pregnancy symptoms for months now, and it is SO depressing!!  I really feel that the TL was a mistake, but I know my hands are full enough, as I have 2 little ones ages 2 1/2 and 1/1/2 already, and I am 37.  I do know that the more you "want" to be pregnant the more your body will trick you into thinking you are!!  It has to be the worst feeling in the entire world, I almost think I should just get a hysterectomy, just so I don't "feel pregnant" every single month, whicj only makes me extremely sad and frustrated.  Anyway, so glad that you gave us some answers, since as it was already stated, many posters never did get back and let anyone know their outcomes.  I do have a friend that knows of another woman who has had 6-7 more kids AFTER  TL, and her husband had a vasectomy.  Another great oddity is that she had natural quintuplets, and was recently PREGNANT again, but lost it....Her next step is hysterectomy because she said she didn't want anymore babies, since her quints are only 8 months old...So, I am a STRONG believer that if God has a plan for you, there will be nothing you can do to yourself to change His plan.

Just a thought about the people who are experiencing pregnancy symptoms after a TL... I think maybe some women are hoping so much that they are pregnant, that they are actually creating these pregnancy symptoms.  The chances for vomiting because of a virus or food poisoning is much higher than pregnancy.  Headaches.. I hate to inform you that headaches occur.  And they maybe be occuring because of this strain of wanting to be pregnant.  Stomach flutters... come on ladies... really?  Stomach flutters don't occur until around month 4 or 5.  The sensations you are experiencing is probably from stress or Irritable Bowel Syndrome brought on by the stress and anxiety.  Sore breasts.... well there are 77 reasons for sore breasts.  Google it.  One of which is neck injury.  Have you ever been in the smallest fender bender?  How about ridden on a roller coaster?  Just because you don't experience neck pain doesn't mean there isn't a small injury.  Caffeine cause breast tenderness also.  And most of all, to those who are praying so dearly to have more children but are too worried about spending 10.00 on a pregnancy test... maybe you should be happy to be sterile.  That 10.00 doesn't even touch what it costs to have a baby.  So if your financial situation won't allow you to invest in pregnancy tests....then this TL is a blessing in disguise.  

I'm not trying to be insensitive.  There is nothing wrong with holding on to hope... but don't live life with your blinders on.  It's obviously not healthy... look at what you're doing to your bodies!

I know that its a hard choice to make.. and I had to make the choice after 1 child due to medical problems. I too, like everyone else, wishes I could get pregnant without having to have another surgery!!
I have considered adoption, which my husband is scared of, but talking about it.
I am late on my period, getting up all night with indigestion, craving water, and my boobs are sore as can be. I am going to wait a week to take a test.
I just wanted to say to all of you woman who are wanting another child, I dont know the chances of getting pregnant, but God is bigger than all of this!! And if he wants you to have a baby, you will!! Tubes tied, cut, burned, no matter what!!! Put it in Gods hands!!!

Hello ladies,

I'm here in the same boat with you'all.  I will tell you I have figured out the mystery of it all. I am a nurse and have extensively studied this subject since I had my tubes clamped in 2004. I remember extensive pain in my fallopian tubes a feeling of pinching. Well turns out this is because these clamps cut off circulation and cause necrosis of the area of the tube underneath it. This not only affects the tube but also can affect the circulation to the ovary. I figure the same it true for burning and cutting, tying etc..  

What happens next is isolated ovary...A sort of atrophy of the ovary. With its blood supply impaired the ovary can no longer produce the required amounts of estrogen....This can be gradual ..as in my case and most or sudden. Anyways I found that this past year my periods became so unpredictable...sometimes weeks late and feeling pregnant and such. I realized after careful analysis that I hadn't ovulated in months.  Now the mechanism of starting your period on time relies on the day you ovulated. So about 14 to 16 days later. If there is no ovulation, called anovulatory. you will probably experience what you guys call a phantom pregnancy....and the sad part is ..we want to be pregnant ..so its a vicious cycle every month...this also attributes to our weight gain since it seems that progesterone is dominant in the absence of estrogen. Progesterone carries a pregnancy once the time of AF had come and gone. So you can understand why we FEEL pregnant. Not only that but tarting late could also have to do with pelvic congestion....if you're late try deep massage. but only if your sure you're not pregnant....that helped me when I would be spotting.

For those who are pregnant and miscarry....I figure it is due to the imbalance of hormones... the ovary houses the corpus luteum which produces the progesterone that sustains the baby until the 14 week....so I figure with the bad circulation maybe it cannot produce the amount needed to sustain a pregnancy and the body KNOWS something is up.....so you unfortunate ladies miscarry.....

unfortunately for MOST ..we are sadly not pregnant. Though I feel its just a natural inclination to want to be. And the more so when it is TAKEN or GIVEN away...then we want it most...lol...how ironic.

I have found that with estrogen supplement replacement and encouragement of my own body's estrogen..in the form of **** qaui, black cohosh, manganese, boron, and flax seed and vit. e that I am now ovulating regularly and my periods are very much so on time, though i still experience painful cramping and alittle beforehand spotting.....but without the lateness at least I don't go on the pregnancy ride..

Now to the info you ladies most want...this is just my understanding of the info I have compiled.....

After much research ...for I too have a new hubby with no kids and cannot afford a 5000 dollar operation.....I now believe it IS possible to to achieve pregnancy after tl...... first of all with people who were only burnt and cut its probably easier because you don't have to worry about a device being ON your tubes...just mostly about reopening scar tissue and allowing natural healing to take place.  

You can google deep chinese fertility massage...its pretty self explanatory....in essence you are massaging away at the scar tiisue and adhesions and at the same time  increase circulation to promote healing and reattachment.......you can also google about taking red clover and calendula and doing herbal tampons of the same...there are various herbs .....the info is there for the taking......it may be a good idea to have birth control for awhile to give your tubes a chance to open so as to not get a one way route and ectopic pregnancy...just a warning..... be smart ladies..don't play with your life....and it is said this is all easier the longer its been......

As for the clamped  and tied ladies....as I ...Filshie to be exact.....alittle more difficult in my eyes...for we have device to wriggle of as well as healing and scar tissue. What I have read and firmly believe based on the statements of tubal ligation reversal docs..is that these devices after a period of time...(one thing I have not been able to pinpoint) are only held into place by scar tissue ..for the tissue under these devices has experienced necrosis....hence the pain....and has been reabsorbed into the body....then according to doctors the fallopian tissue then grows over the clip and HOLDS it in place......so according to this doctor in actuality these devices cause the separating and closing off either end of tubing....hence the reason why some clips migrate or fall off but the tube remains closed.....

So in the end my theory is this.....I have had my clips for 6 years...I figure by now the area has become necrotic and died , been reabsorbed and tissue has grown over it.....in theory ...if deep chinese massage can loosen scar tissue and adhesions...would I not be able to massage the scar tissue the holds the clip away...the clip fall off ....due to the fact the the tissue inside it was dead and reabsorbed ...so in essence no longer there......would it not just fall off.....then in my continued effort with the various afore mentioned herbs and supplements and herbal tampons and massage.....continue to reopen my closed ends of my tubes allowing for natural reconnection.....hmmmmmm  I wonder

All I know is this......it makes sense to me....I did read a post about red clover on this massage board about a woman who got pregnant after her tl that was 7 years ago ..after 3 weeks on red clover...she didn't even mention the herbal tampons or massage.....So I believe there is hope......

I have just started massaging a couple weeks ago....mostly after period to ovulation.....I can tell you this....i feel things happening down there and secretions are improving... so maybe i am on to something...we shall see.....I do not know how long the process may take or if in the end it will work...but if you cannot do the surgery then why not try....in the end the surgery can lead to scarring too and cause blocked tubes and ectopic pregnancies as well.......

BTW the mucous thinner guafenesin.....thins out cervical secretions during ovulation and may help achieve better sperm motility through narrow passages.....

Good luck ladies...I wish you well....I understand your pain....my cousin and friend are both prego....its hard to watch...and my cousin didn't even want a kid...but knew I did and said I was crazy.....

if you want to contact me its  ***@****

well i was there. i had my tubes cut,tied,and burnt! in Aug of 2000 after my son was born. 3 yrs ago i ended up pregnant.. but i did have a misscarriage. which was very sad for me. i did have a dye test done that showed NO holes or anything. all the doc's told me was.. "we have no idea how this happend and it would never happend again".. so on that note..i'm very upset and wish i could i have another baby.. but i guess it is what it is.. and i have to stop dwelling on it and try to move on.. i know its very hard i've been in a depression since.. good luck to all!

Should I just wait it out or try a test and see what it says?

so.. here's my story. I had 3 kids already my youngest is 19 months. I had my TL 3 months ago. I had 2 regular periods after the surgery. and now ive completely misses the month of march. I suppose it could be chalked up as jsut irregular hormones? i dont know really. I do have pregnancy symptoms, tender breasts. throwing up and emotionally off. But also that happens before a period too. I am almost 3 weeks late. Part of me feels like it's impossible to be prego considering I JUST had my tubes done a few months back but another part of me is like... after 3 kids i think i know what its like to be prego. What i am geting at is it I think i might be prego but  I dont wan to take a test and be dissapointed tha ti am or am not. I didnt wnat to get my tubes done wheni did but i did it anyways. i dunno why. So i am going to wait a lil longer to take a test to see if i get my period. I will be back t let you all know. Considering I am not hte only one who has felt this way.. obviously... lol.. But i have yet to see anyone come back and give an answer to whether they are prego or not.. hmm.. I hope i am because i really wanted to have one more child.. so ill be praying for myself..

I was wondering has anyone gotten pregnant after having both your tubes removed? Just a little history about my situation. I have 3 children ages 12, 10 and 3. After having my son in Jan of 2007 I had my tubes tied and burned. May of the following year, I was pregnant again . The doctor says that it was in my tubes, but after my second episode i think that it wasn't. ok fine..in July 08' my doctor went in and had supposedly corrected the tubal ligation in hope that if there was an opening, to burn it some more.  Well guess what, Thursday, Jan 22, 2009 I was experiencing severe cramps and heavy bleeding that I had to leave work to go to the Emergency Room. To my surprise, I was pregnant again. Yes Again!!!!
From that day I went through h....!. They took me down to xray to confirm where the baby was and said it was possible in tubes but it was not in the uterus. My doctor ordered them to give some type of shot that would expel the fetus and demrol for the pain.But that did not work. Called my doctor to explain to her that I was still cramping severly and bleeding, and releasing clots. she said that it was normal. Ok that Sunday, i was in soo much PAIN my husband took me back to Emergency Room, and this time they kept me upon my doctors orders. The whole time I was in there, the tech drew blood every morning to monitor my HCG levels and kept giving me drugs. Not one time did my doctor come examine me. When I finally saw her was the day that I was getting released which was the 28th of Jan. Her comments at that time to me and my husband, "She doesn't know what else to do and that the only thing she can suggest is that me and my husband stop having sex or that she perform a complete hysterectomy on me. Now of course we thought this lady is "CRAZY".  
Well after  I was released, when  I got home the pain started back, bleeding stopped some but pain was still SEVERE. called my doctor's office again explain to her that something is not right and that I was still in this pain. Again she said come in the office continue to get your blood drawn and take the pain pills because the HCG hormone level was dropping which meant to her that I was not pregnant. So we did that on Jan 29 and 30th and Feb 2. On that Feb 2. she still did not examine me just went over the prior ultra sounds and said I need to consider a hysterectomy and to continue taking the pain pills and it should get better. and said to come back to see her on Feb 9th.
At this point, we were fed up with the same excuses. So I made appointment with a fertility doctor to see why I kept getting pregnant. God had to have directed us to this Doctor because, first of all he didn't have any openings for new patients for about a month later but because my best friend called explained my sistuation, they were able to see me on Feb 3rd.
Ok I go to this new doctor, explain to him my history and explained to him that I needed some answers to why I am still getting pregnant after two tubal ligations. He LISTEN to me and the first thing he wanted to do was an ultra sound. which makes the 4th one and I'm like please give me answers.... Ok as he is doing the ultrasound  and the vaginal ultrasound he is looking a bit puzzled and confused. Which started scaring me of course.  When he was done, the nurse turn the lights back and he ask who came with me and at this point I am like, what is wrong? He was like you are PREGNANT in your tubes which has ruptured and you are bleeding internally and I need to get in there ASAP. At this point I lost it. Needless to say, I was rushed by ambulance to the hospital for emergency surgery within 45 minutes. This doctor saved my life! Had I kept listening to my OB/GYN of 18 plus years, I would have died.  
Now this has been a year ago since this episode and last month, I didn't get my period. cramping a little so I was wondering if I could possible be pregnant without any tubes?  ANY Suggestions??

I had my tubes tied little over 10 years ago, for a week I have felt really tired and sick to my stomach in the mornings, when it came time for my period it came a couple of days early and only lasted one day (my periods always last 5-6 days) it was a pink and dark brown color. This week i have been really restless at night and have been woken up to horrible gas and heart burn, I took a HTP yesterday and it was negative. I really feel like i am prego, but guess too soon to tell. Don't really know what to do from here....... I will be okay with having another child because my new husband is 38 and has never had one of his own but took my two little girls in as his own. GOD HAS A PLAN FOR ALL OF US!!!
