Normal pregnancy after failed tubal ligation
Hi I was wondering if i could get some answers on becoming pregnant after having had tubes clamped . I am 22 i had my tubes tied in March of 2004 a year after having my 3rd child .my period has never been regular and as of now i havent had a period in 5 months . but for the past 1-2 months i have had some symptoms to lead me to think i could possibly be pregnant but iam to afraid to find out for sure . I have had bloating,headaches,nose bleeds , sore breast, and lower back pain as well as feeling tired alot . is it possible to become pregnant in such a short time of a tubal ? what is the % rate for some one of my age ? and what are the risk of becoming pregnant ? would a home pregnancy test be effective in finding out ? I would love to have another child if it happens but if not i am also ok with that what ever happens , happens . any answers would be great ! Thanks

I don't know the chances of becoming pg right after a tubal, but I'd say slim to none.  A hpt would be 99.999999% gauranteed accurate because it's been 5 months without a period (if I read that right).  

The only way to know is to take a hpt, but I'd say it's doubtful you are.  If you're not having your period, then you're not ovulating, so you can't get pg.  And if you were pg 5 months ago then you'd probably be feeling the baby kick by now.

I think it's common....well, maybe not common, but certainly not unheard of, to have a tubal and have funky periods.  Maybe you can ask your doc about getting your period jumpstarted and then going on some low-dose birth control to keep your periods regular...  Just a thought...

I herd it's $6,000 to $7,000, and most insurance won't cover it.
