The chances for you getting pregnant are somewhere in .1% so not very likely at all.  If you want to get pregnant you could try IVF or you could try getting surgery to get your tubes untied but the success rate of that procedure is very low.

Mumita is correct.  The chances of getting pregnant w/ your tubes tied are very low however, if you were to get pregnant you are at high risk for an ectopic pregnancy which is dangerous.

If you think you might be pregnant take and test - if its positive, you need to seek medical advice right away.

You can discuss future options for pregnancy with your doctor - a tubal reversal is one possible option but only your doctor can determine whether this is suitable in your case.

The chances of becoming pregnant after a tubal ligation is actually somewhat high depending on if it was done after a C-section or under some other circumstances.  Also nothing is 100% especially this. I know 6 people who have gotten pregnant afterwards and had healthy babies.  One had a tubal pregnancy.  The chances are about 1/350 and some studies show 1/150 so thats not that low at all.

My mom had her tubes untied and then got pregnant with me.  It's a procedure that you can reverse.
