i've heard of two people that had their tubes tide and got pregnant but it's not likely, it's very rare

Yes it is VERY possible to be pregnant even when your tubes have been tied!!
My dh had a vasectomy  and we have a 6.5 month old!!!
Also I know of 2 personal friends that have had children in their mid 40's  because of their tubes have come un done and have two little boys as a result.

Although it is possible, it is not likely.  Having your tubes "tied" is sort of a misnomer.

They are cut, each end is ligated with suture, and the ends are usually burned with cautery, too.  The exact method varies with the surgeons preference.  Sometimes clips are placed on them.

Actually, getting pregnant after a tubaligation is more common than people know. I am pregnant right now and I had one done five years ago. It may vary from state to state, but here in Ohio, the tubes are only tied if the woman is 26 years old or younger. This is done to give them an easy opportunity to untie them if they change their minds at a later date. Don't assume the having a tubaligation means getting your tubes clipped and burned! ASK YOUR DOCTOR!

Hi, yes you can I had mine clipped tied and burned when my 4th child  was born 11yrs ago and I'm now 12wks 4days pregnant so it is possible but from what I've been reading on different sites it seems that it is more common among women that have had it done for at least 7-11 yrs ago.

You sound like me, My fiance has no children he wants a baby and his mom keeps talking about grandkids to the both of us. My tubes were tied 17years ago I would love to have another baby but the only way that I know of is the tubal reversal which is not 100% guaranteed that I will get pregnant and I would hate to spend so much money on something like that only to be disapointed so I guess all we can do is pray that they unravel on there own.

I am a 25 year old mother of two! I had my tubes cut, tied, and burned in 2005 a couple hours after my second child was born. I have had regular periods all along and now I am 8 days late and am scared to take a pregnancy test! I am not scared to have another baby if its meant to be then its meant to be however I am scared of it being a tubular pregnancy! Does anyone know of anyone who had successful pregnancy after their tubes were cut and burnt?

My youngest is 3 and I for the first time I am late.I had a tubaligation six weeks after she was born in 2004. I dont know how I feel about it.But I have been nauseated and urinating alot. My family believes you can have pregnancy symptoms for someone else.What do you guys think? Its only been 3 years.

Hi everyone :)

First I would like to say congradulations to everyone that has gotten pregnant after having their tubes tied who wanted another child. However, to shed a little light on pregnancy after tubaligation, you sure can get pregnant after having your tubes tied and I am living proof. After having my fourth son and fourth c-section 13 years ago I decided to have my tubes tied. Well to make a long story short I'm now sitting here 4 months pregnant and the baby is in the uterus. My doctor had not giving me any explainantion as to why this happen. So don't just take your doctor's word when he/she tell you that after having the procedure done that you can not get pregnant. Do your homework first and then you decide.

Best wishes to you all

Okay.. Help Somebody!!!!.. I had a tubal in 2003.. I remember because I just turned 23 and the doctor kept asking me was I sure because I told her I didn't want anymore children. Turns out she only put clips on my tubes. I am not with my husband anymore after 8 years. I have 3 children. I am dating a guy now who have no children. We are not even thinking about that yet but I just want to make sure that my clips are still in place. I heard like after 5 or 10 years the clips starts to dissolve or slip off and my youngest will be 6 next month.. I am not ready for a baby right now and may never be.. Just wanted to know if that was true about the clips?

I've been reading alot of comments about feeling pregnant after a tubal ligation, and taking the home pregnacy test only to come back negative.  Some of the reader/responders have stated they have doctors appointments scheduled but never comment about how the appointment went.  If you are one of those individuals that have been informed by a professional, please respond to what the cause of the symptons of pregnacy after a tubal ligation.  Yes, I am sure we know the dreaded word menapause but the age gap for the symptoms has been early 20's to mid to latter 40's. Just wanted to add also I am sure these comments are coming from all around and not within a small radius or community, so it's not the water:).   Very interested in knowing if this is something serious, and is there a test woman should know about and take for these syptoms (symptoms) once or every other year like we do when we have our annual pap smear, or are they long-term tubal ligation side  effects

I am 24 yrs. old and got a tubal ligation about 11 months ago after the birth of my seconded daughter. I know that the doctors told me that they tied my tubes and that is all they did not burn or put any clamps in them. So I was wondering if there is anyway I could pregnant again without getting a reversal because I would like to have another baby. Does anyone know how high my chances would be of getting pregnant again? Thank you, for reading this.

For those who have clamped tubes, or those who have had tubes tied, cut and or burnt:

I spoke with an obstetrician about my tubal clamps,( which were done in 2000, right after my 5fh child was born ) He politely informed me that yes, tho it's rare, it COULD happen, having clamps lessons the chances of conception, only because the tissue will actually harden, and grow around the clamps as a thick wall (not to be mistaken for an opening around the clamps).  However, if the clamp itself has loosened, there could be the slight chance that enough of an opening would allow an egg to pass through.  He also told me that if I wanted to be 100% sure that my tubes were completely closed I could go to my family doctor and ask for a test to be done. it's called the HSG (hysterosalpingography)  what they do is insert you with a die that will flow through your reproductive organs, and show on an altrasound.  This die will indicate if you have an opening large enough for the egg to pass through. (I googled it... lol)

The doctor did mention tho, with tubal clamps it is the opposite of tubal cutting, the biggest risk for pregnancy is with in the first 2 years, after that the risk lessons more and more because the tissues that the clamp is holding will actually grow together, so even if the clamps come loose or fall off in years following the procedure, the tube is collapsed, and non functional.

I have not yet asked my family doctor for this test, but have a physical scheduled for October 1st, and will ask for it then.  I will come back and post results.  Hope this helps.

I am 28 years old. I had a tubal ligation in November of 2006, 5 months after my fourth child was born. It was done with the rings on the tubes. One week after the procedure, I was hospitalized with a severe infection resulting from the surgery, and my uterus was severely swollen along because of the infection.
I am now 3 weeks late, and my periods are generally regular. I am on a 28 cycle, and very rarely I will be late, although usually only a couple of days or so. I have all the symptoms of early pregnancy, although these could also be interpreted as PMS on a grander scale.
Two weeks ago, I took two pregnancy tests within 3 days of each other. Both were negative. However, they were cheap ones. (That's what happens when you ask a man to pick one up on his way home from work, lol. "Aren't they all the same?")
I am wondering if it's still possible to be pregnant. I am hoping so, because I desperately want a baby again. I lost my youngest three children 2 years ago.
Another puzzling thing: I have continued to ovulate every month since having the procedure done, but this month, the time for ovulation has come and gone.
Perhaps when my uterus was distended during the infection so soon after the surgery, the rings were worked loose in some manner?
I don't have any health insurance at the moment, and because my tubes are tied, I don't qualify for "family planning medicaid." If I am pregnant, I need to be seen as soon as possible, in case of an ectopic pregnancy.
Any thoughts?

I got my tubes tied 15 years ago. While I was getting them tied i was 4 weeks pregnant. The doctor did not know. I terminated the pregnancy the week after I had my tubes tied. The doctor told me that since I was pregnant while the tubes were tied, that there is a chance the surgery might not be effective. Anyone ever heard of this? He told me that in 35 years of practicing medicine, he had never seen anything like this. Leave it to me I guess.

After a ligation, you will not conceive by natural means. You would need a reversal or IVF to insure that the baby implants in the uterus and not in the tubes. After a ligation the chance of pregnancy is a little over 1%, and after 10 years it increases to 1.8%. Most of these result in Ectopic pregnancy. That's why a ligation is called permanent birth control. You need to be sure that you're done with children. Many people don't seem to think about their futures in 5 or 10 years and end up in a situation they can't fix.

I'm so glad I found this site! In 2005 I was stupid and had my tubes tied.
What the dr told me he did was up a little rubber ring on each tube. I was so stupid bc my bf at the time said he never wanted kids. At that time I though we where going to get married
Now I'm with a wonderful man that wants kids and I am praying that somehow some way I will become pregnant. Ihave had pregnancy like feelings but years ago I had a dr tell me it was bc I wanted to to have a baby so my body tricked me.
I pray that's not the case this time

I would take a test. Back in 2006 I had my tubal ligation and a year after (2007) had a positive pg test when I went to see a gyn he told me it was impossible I started bleeding a week later, he then told to come back when I stopped bleeding so that he could do a pap smear well when he did my pap he noticed my uterus was purple the color it turns when your pg he then told me there was a possibility I was. Well that's not all ever since it happens to me a couple of times I'll have pg symptoms so does my hubby and I will take a test right before period starts and what do you know it's always a faint positive. So I went online and wrote to a tubal reversal doctor and he told me I could be having chemical pregnancies which means the egg and sperm meet very late and doesn't attach to my uterus which he said Is very common in tubal ligation women. So it will not be a successfull pg so I always end up bleeding around the time of expected period. I hate that I have this a pray that one day it will be successful so you never know there are many women who have conceived.

Hi, a lot of women on here are describing pregnancy symptoms and worrying  How many of you have done the test and are pregnant?  Of those who are pregnant, have you had any complications of Ectopic pregnancy or any other problems.  I had the operation 1997 and want another baby now..

I am a 34 year old mother of two.  I have a 13 year old daughter and an 11 year old son.  I got my tubes tied in March of 2008.  Once I had my tubal done I didn't have AF for 5 months (i think due to the depro shot I had right before tubal was done).  but once it did come back I have been regular ever since.  the most I have been late is about 2 days.  now here I am and I am 9 days late.  AF should have been here on Sept 3rd and I was sure it was coming because I had all the symptoms that I normally get when I get my period.  but no spotting, no nothing.  I have taken 4 hpt's, day 5, day 6, day 8 and day 9 and all have been negative.  I don't want to be pregnant again so I am hoping the tests are accurate...but the no knowing for sure is killing me.  I just either want my period to come or to see a positive test.  I am going to wait a week and if still nothing then I will make a dr's appointment to see what is going on.

that sounds just like me. I had my tubes tied 10 years ago and i had my cycle april 15 and i didnt get it again until 6weeks later and then two weeks later and another two weeks after. well it start coming again every three weeks and thats a normal for me but not 6 weeks. Now in sept. 2011 i miss it again. and its oct. and still no show and i been feeling movement in my stomach and feeling bloated and nausea and lower back pain and headache and at times i feel tired and sluggish. and i notice fine white bumps around my nipple. and also it feels like something is growing me. I took 2 HPT last week and one had a faint pregnancy line and the other one was negative. Monday i went to the doctor and of course my P.Test was negative and she took blood work and now i am waiting. Today i took 3 HPT and all were negative. I am so confused about whats going on with me. i have 3 children already 12,11,10 and thats the last thing on my mind and if its one there and why is it hiding.

i got my tubes tied on 9-12-07, to my understanding your tubes stay tied for five years and my five years is almost up because my daughter is about to turn five on september 12th this year. So my fiance wants another baby he already have four kids to two other women but we are getting married in 2013 in november and i think i'm pregnant now.

I've had the same problem I had my tubes clamped in 2000 but lately Iv'e been gaining weight and have even felt fluttering ( movement ) in my abdomen , tired a lot , and breasts very tender... the last time I has these things going on I asked my doctor for an ultra sound cause my pregnancy test kept coming up negative .. he would not give me one I had missed my period for two weeks ..I went to a different doctor and still they wouldn't give me an ultrasound .. she pushed in my stomach real hard then right after I started bleeding heavly and that hurt like hell.. but none of them would give me an ultrasound two see if I was pregnant in my tubes , because I had gotten clamped in 2000.....
