Filshie Clips and Pregnancy

Hi everyone. I am 24 years old and 4 months ago I had a baby, my second baby boy, and my doctor suggested that I have a tubal ligation because I had pre-eclampsya for both pregnancies and both were premature deliveries via c-section, both times my health was compromised.  This last time I almost died in the operating room and had the worse experience ever. So I followed my doctor's advice and opted for a tubal ligation because although my husband and I wanted to have more children, at least one more, we also knew that I could have complications which can be fatal with pre-eclampsya.  However, for the past 3 weeks I have been experiencing symptoms associated with pregnancy.  I called my doctor's office and his nurse read my operative report and said that my tubal ligation was done with Filshie Clips.  I had never heard of these before. I've done some research and it turns out that there is a possibility that these can become loose, they can unclip, your body can reject them, or there could be a malfunction ending in unwanted (or in my case, wanted) pregnancy.  I am 19 days late on my period and have several pregnancy symptoms, although I took a home pregnancy test that read negative.  I don't know what to do at this point.  Can anyone relate to this situation or have heard of a case with pregnancy after Filshie Clips?  Any comments will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks everyone.

Go to your drs for a blood test to be sure
your cycles may just be a little irragular since you just gave birth recently.

I am going through the same thing you did in September. I had my tubes clipped about 6 years ago and my period is 4 days late, my period has never been late. I took a pregnancy test but it was negative. Just curious to know if you were pregnant or was it a false alarm?
