Yes. It's rare like one in a million but possible bc the tube can in theory grow back it's just very rare

From what I've read, tubal ligation is 99% - 99.5% effective, so you could get pregnant after you've had the procedure. You should consider taking a home pregnancy test. Your period could be delayed for other reasons, though, not just pregnancy.

it's unlikely but always a small chance
