pregnancy after tubal ligation

I had my tubes tied 11 years ago.  I have had symptoms of pregnancy for about a week and a half.  Bloating, constipation, throwing up, tender breasts, etc.  I had a blood test done two days ago that came back negative, but my period isn't due for another 5 days.  My last period came two weeks early and wasn't very heavy.  How often do tubes come untied?  And could I be pregnant even though the blood test came back negative?  Could have been to early for it to show even with a blood test, because I sure feel pregnant.

a blood test can detect a pregnancy as early as 5 days after ovulation. basically because it once you ovulate and the sperm and egg meet it takes about 5 days for the egg to implant itself and that is when the hcg hormone starts being produced.

that being said....if you ovulated late it is possible that the blood test could have been wrong it just depends on when you ovulated.  however after 11 years (i'm betting) it is unlikely that your tubes came untied.

good luck to you, let us know what you find out.

thanks I will let you know what i find out.  But I did find an article on the net that said after 10 years your chances of tubes coming untied more than triples the chances of them coming untied within the first 5 years.

Question Posted By: Tamm on Sunday, April 25, 1999



Posted by Tamm on April 25, 1999 at 14:03:41
I had a tubal ligation about 13 months ago..I recently went into see my dr with abnormal symtoms (symptoms) in my cycle ( server cramps, heavy bleeding large clots) He informed me that I was miscarring. I had blood work done that showed a high level of pregestrone, which confirmed his diagnosis. Could you please explain how this happened and if it could happen again?
Thank you



I found the article that I was looking at earlier on the net.  I copied it and pasted it here. Let me know what you think and I will let u know what I find out. Thank you for your help I realy appriciated it.

Dear Tamm:
Tubal ligation has a known failure rate that is 1-3/1000 women in the first 5 years and 10/1000 women by 10 years.

If the portion of the tube attached to the uterus unseals or the ends of the tube grow together, there is a pathway for sperm and egg to meet.

Keywords: tubal ligation failure

Hey It is possible!! I know a lady who had her tubes tied her dd was 19 and she was pregnant with another I think she had her tubes tied for 15 years!!
My husband had a vasectomy  and I have a 3 month old so nothing is impossible!
This time i got my tubes tied and between that and dh vasectomy it better work!!
But blood tests are accurate for pregnancy but just keep a check on things

I had my tubes tied 5 years ago, I had made a harsh decision to do so after I lost my daughter 31 days after birth. All I know is I never wanted to go threw that again. Almost 5 years to the day I was feeling really crummy, cramp,bleeding after my normal period. I went to the hospital and told them I had my tubes tied, routine was still to do a pregnacy test and low and behold I was pregnant. I had an ultra sound and it was NOT a tubal pregnancy but I did miscarry. No one can explain this either. It is very frustrating because I do want another baby, but everyone keeps telling me different things. The doctors can't even give me straight answers. Anyone else???????

I made a post on this topic about a week ago I got my tubes tied in 2005. I havent had a period since August. I took a EPT test and it came back poitive and then I went to the hospital a few days later due to cramping and they told me that I wasnt pregnant. Here it is Oct. I still havent had a period I have all the signs of being pregnant. I can even feel my uterus now its gotten hard like a brick and further up in my abdomen. But I still can not show a positive urine test. I did do some research on it and I learned when you have a tubal its best to do blood than urine becasue of some reason its harder to get a positive urine test. The problem im running into being that I dont have insurace that its hard for me to find anyone to do a blood test on me they tell that they cant to a blood pregnancy test because I have had a tubal. I have come to the point as to say I know my body well enough I have had 3 kids and I know in my own little way im pregnant so im just going ot wait until the baby comes. I am so frustrated with this situation. Its going to cost me well over 200 dollars just to get a blood test done if I can find someone to do it. I have been on the phone with several nurses around here in my area and they all tell me the same thing "you have had a tubal you need blood done not urine."Im compleatly at a loss.

It has been 5 years this past July that i had my one tubed left and it was tied. at least thats what i am sure was done since dr saidhe can reverse it! I lost one tube with a etopic in 2000. Well i had my daughter in 99 the 2000 i had the etopic and in 2001 i had a miscarriage, then in 2002 i had my son. I just found out about a year ago that i have endometriosis i had a LAP done and drtook some out! I am now 4 days late on my period and havent been late for ever in a day! I was wondering after 5 years could my tube grow bac together really. I am more nervous about this than anything. Hubby and i have wanted another baby but dr said my best bet was to have the invitro done. because having the endometriosis i could have another etopic and i do not want or wish that on anyone! I felt like i was dieing!! Well if u have anything for me about this please let me know!  Thanks!!!

I had my tubal done 2 years ago after I had my 2nd child. I had it done because everyone told me that I didn't need anymore kids because my husband and I dicvorced while I was pregant with our 2nd child after 10 years together. Well I had it done at the age of 27 and I have always hated that I did it, but now I am with a great guy who loves me and my kids and he knows of the tubal and he understands that I may not be able to have anymore. I guess what I am looking for is someone that has had a tubal ligation with the clips and still got pregant.

i hade a tubal ligation on 10-29-04 i am 24 i really regret it. i am divorced from my first husband who talked me into the ligation and i am re married to a wonderful guy who has no kids so we both want a child together . we can not afford a reversal so i am asking for help from god . i am almost 2 months late on period. have all prego symptoms . took 3 different kinds of hpt and all neg. i dont have insurance so i cant go to doctor. i just found out from the doctor what he did to my tubes he said oh they were just cut like it was no big deal . so my questions are could i still be prego. since my tubes were just cut could they grow back . with my fisrt child i was 20 weeks before i found out and i even took hpt went to doctor and a christian clinic and all test were neg finally at 20 weeks i took another hpt and positive with my second i was16 weeks before i found out and both times i had no symptoms just missed periods. im like the post a few up i guess ill just wait and see if i have a baby lol good luck 2 every1 post if you get new results it will give some of us hope.

I would like to know if women ovualte after TL it has been 9 years since my TL and I have always felt myself ovulate, I can see when I ovulate. I am a mother of 5 kids...aging from 15-9 I want verymuch to actually have another baby. My now fiance` and I would like to. This last cycle I cramped extremely hard during about the time of my ovulation, and about a week ago  cramped again, same as I have done in the past I think mostly with my first child (the extreme cramping, I didnt know I was pregnat for some time because I actually spotted with her on the day I was suppose to start.... anyway I have also read somewhere that women lose there sexual desire when pregnant...I never had that, with my ex husband but for the last week I have been extremely uninterested..... which I cannot understand.... so not like me....If anyone has any similar feelings emotions experiences that would be great... thanks

It can happen  I had my tubes cut and burned alomost 8 years ago last month I was pregnant.  I had a miscarriage but i got pregnant which I thought never possible.  My doctor offered to redo my tubes I chose not to.  Like you I also remarried and my husband has no children so if I were to get pregnant again it would be a blessing.  Also when I found out I was pregnant I searched on the net and found out that more people than you can imagine actually have regular uterine pregnancies after they had a tubal.  Don't get me wrong anytime you get pregnant after a tubal you risk a chance of ectopic.  But do some research on the net and you will find what I did. Hope I helped

I went to see my gyn doc this evening and the urine test came out negative. Now i have to schedule an appt. for an ultrasound. Doc said if i feel faint or dizzy to go directly to the ER and they'll give me the ultrasound on the spot. Meanwhile my breasts are sore, my left side is very painful, my lower abdomen hurts, my lower back hurts, i'm constipated and i have gas, and my bladder is constantly full.

For starters i had my tubes tied or so they say, i cant get the dr to tell me anything, in jan 2002 ive NEVER missed or been late for a cycle in 6 years. now im 2 weeks late, have all the pregnancy symptoms and in my heart i "FEEL" that i am, but i dont want to really think i am for fear that im not. it will break my heart. i spent 10 years in a marriage, have 3 beautiful daughters from that marriage. when almost a year ago he left me for another woman and had a child with her. im now happily engaged to a wonderful man with no children of his own. he knows the chances are slim.. but we still continue to pray. can god give me what i so desperately want even when the drs say its not possible??

I see your post was put on here some time ago but I was wondering how that worked out for you? You see I just turned 43 in April, I have had reg periods my whole life (no more than 5 days late) and now I find myself 19 days late. I've had my tubes clamped for 18.5 yrs. I am going through some stress right now but my periods have always came early or more frequently with stress, not late. Before the tubal I've never had a problem to conceive, let's just say it was necessary or I would have 20 kids by now!! I have ALL the symptoms of pregnancy with the exception that the pregnancy test I took 6 days ago being negative. I thought maybe menopause but there was no warning and no symptoms leading up to it if it is menopause. Any thoughts?

I had a TL in Jan of 2008 and I have missed my period.  I took 3 test and all came back positive.  I went to the doc asap and he did blood work.  It came back positive.  I had an ultrasound and nothing was seen.  I have been going for blood work every other day to make sure the hormone levels are increasing.  I am wondering at what point should I request another ultrasound?  I am currently 5.5 weeks along.  I am guessing another couple of weeks...but it is so hard to wonder what is going to happen.

My hormone levels are increasing well.  I have an ultra sound tomorrow a.m.  I am starting to get a bit down about the whole thing. I hate the thought of going and finding out it is a tubal.  I keep telling myself to be thankful for the three wonderful children I have...but this baby no matter where it is, is a part of me.  Ahh! the suspense is killing me.

I see that you found out that you are indeed going to be a mommy again.  Congrats!  It is hard not to think of this circumstance as a miricale.  I was curious when you had your ligation and what kind did you have?  When are you due?  Good luck to you!

I had a ligation 11 years ago last month.  Last month I had a two day period that was very light.  I have felt nauseous and very tired since two days before my irregular period.  I also have a feeling of tightness below my naval. My next period should be in about a week. I have three wonderful children but was in a miserable marriage until 6 years ago.  I have been married to a wonderful, Christian man for almost 4 years now.  He does not have any children so we would be so excited to have one of our own. I am really scared to take a test and be disappointed but I know I need to find out what is going on.  I/we pray God has decided to bless us with a special gift!

I too had my tubes tiered over 11 years ago and I am now experiencing pregnancy symptoms.  Nausia, sore breasts, the smell of food makes me sick to my stomach.  I have another week before I can say I've missed my period.  I did take a pregnancy test but it came back negative.  I feel in my heart that I am pregnant but just don't know.  I am with a wondrful man who has not children, I have 4 but would love to be able to give him a child of our own.  Just feeling like could this really be happening after 11 years.

Hello, Im 36 and have had my tubes tied/cut/burned? since 1994, I did do invitro in 1999 and lost the baby at 5 months into pregnancy we done it again in 2002 and had beautiful boy/girl twins. Since by tubal ligation in 94  I have been always on time never late and very heavy for 7 to 10 days. In July was atleast a week or more late, this month never really had a period a smear here and there. I have severe nausea, breasts hurt, horrible headaches,tired all the time. My 5 yr old boy twin asked me today if I had a baby in my belly because my belly was hard and asked me if it hurt and I said a little and he said then you probably have a baby in your belly I told him no that mommy couldnt have babies anymore and he said if GOD wants you to have a baby he will put one there. My stress level is no more than usual, keep thinking I will just wait and see if it comes next month, but am very curious.  I hear your chances are higher having them tied over 10 yrs and being over 35 anyone with any knowledge of this??

also a little more info, I have had 6 babies including the one I lost in 99, and 5 of them where with only 1 ovary, so feel that I am very fertile if it makes any difference. Still have 8 eggs frozen but would love to be pregnant naturally again, and as if it wouldnt have perfect timing I return back to nursing school to finish my next degree in October. So still very excited hoping the possibility is very high that I could be, please comment and let me know if possible.

I have had my tubes tied for 6 going on seven years, banded not cut or burned. June 11th was the last time I have had a period. On Aug. 2nd and 3rd I had a brown spot in my panties. Around the 11th I started getting really nauseated,cramping, heavy breasts, unusually tired and my moods were everywhere. I have taken 3 at home tests and on the 15th another urine test at the drs office(all were negative). This morning I woke up and to my surprise had a thick brown discharge when I went to the bathroom. I have since gone to the bathroom 2 more times since I went at 0630 this a.m. and still the discharge on wipe. My husband doesn't want to talk to me about it cuz he is nervous that I may be pregnant. Funny thing about it is..........I believe in my heart that I am. I have heard that women who have had their tubes tied have a hard time getting positive results from urine samples. Not sure why though. I hope things work out for you. You are not by yourself:) If anyone else can give advise please do.

I had my period two weeks ago but I'm experiencing symptoms that I normally experience right before I start my period! I told myself two years ago that I would never do this again. I told myself that I would accept the fact that I'm sterile. But here I am!  Two years ago I experienced symptoms that made me believe that I was pregnant. I bought a pregnancy test. It was negative, so I went for a blood test, also negative. Convinced that there was something in my uterus, I talked my doctor into an ultrasound and nothing. I had my tubal ligation done in 1999 after the birth of my 3rd child. I was only 22! I didn't regret it until 4 years ago, when I met this man that I'm truly, madly, deeply in love with! Ever since then, my mind has been playing tricks on me. I desperately want my tubal ligation to fail! I want more than anything to have a baby with this man. I really don't have the finances to reverse what has been done. There are times that I get a virus that mimics pregnancy symptoms and I run out and buy a test, hoping that I'm pregnant. When I get these symptoms, I also research like crazy hoping for some light to the end of this tunnel. This is what I have researched: Tubal ligation has a known failure rate that is 1-3/1000 women in the first 5 years and 10/1000 women by 10 years. (Think about it, ten pregnancies out of 1000 women in a span of ten years!) That's not a lot of failures! There is a higher failure rate if the woman had a ligation at the time of her c section, which I did. It turns out that having a ligation at the time of delivery compromises the quality of the ligation, because the uterus and fallopian tubes are swollen. Even if a woman gets pregnant, it's more than likely a tubal pregnancy. I have read a lot of stories from women claiming to have these symptoms, but no one ever comments back. This is really depressing! I don't know why I even put myself through it!

Hi, I just wanted to say I know how everyone is feeling, the confusion and the unknown. Today Im 9 days late for my P, two day before they were to start I have a light to med brown discharge (but only when I wiped from going to the toilet), (symtom classed as implantation bleeding happens a few days to a week before period is due) ! which lasted three days. Then nothing. Ive been getting lower back pain, cramping (mild), heavy type of headaches, nausea (mild), tightness around my lower abdomen, this morning Ive noticed goosebump lumps around nipples. All of which are pregnancy symptoms and I dont get any pms except heaving aching feeling like everything is going to fall out. I did preg test on day 3 and 4 and 6 after my expected P was due all neg. To top this off I am like clockwork with my P exactly 27 or 28 cycle, as well 7 years ago I had my tubes clamped. My (now)  husband and I are due to go to IVF on the 9th Dec, I guess I will know sooner or later, but is there anyone who has been pregnant after having tubes clamped.

I've wanted to have a child with my husband now, and 3 weeks ago I to was feeling all the pregnancy symptoms and just knew in my heart that I was preg. I took hpt (+) couldn't believe it took another (+) so I went Monday to local clinic I used to work at and they gave me an urine test and it to was (+) so with the shock and disbelief, since I was told it was nearly impossible for me to become preg. I went to the hospital and they gave me a quantative blood test..they confirmed it I was about 2 weeks preg. and they had me come back to the hospital 2 days later, (Wed.) to see if my levels were raising...and they were it went from 128 first to 288 second test, the third test (Fri.) I took the levels began to drop they went to 221, So i was a wreck but the Dr. was reassuring that it could be anything to make the levels drop. Since it was the weekend I did everything I could to make sure I didn't jeopardize this preg.. Mon. I felt fine, better than ever... Tues. I woke up and was bleeding..Hysterical I rushed to the ER and the Dr. there said it was extrautarine bleeding and it wasn't a ruptured tube.. She said I could be experiencing blight ovum (miscarriage), So now I have another appt. on Mon. to see my OB/GYN to reassure that my tubes are fine I believe I'm going to request him to do a Lapro. to tell me how my tubes look and if they have indeed grown back together...  

Waiting to see

I got my tubes tied 16yrs ago...For the last couple months I've been feeling movement in my stomach but have been getting my period still..But last month my period was only 2 days..I had an ultrasound done and blood test doctor said she didn't see anything but my right tube was a little bit larger then the left which she claimed was normal...Blood work was negative.I still have been feeling movement even more on some days then others...I got my period yesterday but this time I have cramps which I don't get on my period usually its before not during..I felt movement alot the day before and still while on my period..My husband says its gas or maybe I have to go to bathroom but I know my body..I have 3 girls also 20,18,17...I'm 36yrs old and was young when i had my girls...My husband doesn't have any and this would be a blessing..But with no answers and no insurance it's driving me crazy...Don't know what else to do.

I know the chances of getting pregnant after getting cut tied and burnt(1-25-07) I desperatly want to get pregnant with my new husband and it is driving me crazy. I was pressured into getting the TL by my ex and his family. My new hubby is very supportive and wishes us to have a child also. I guess what Im asking is that how possible is it for me to get pregnant and what are the chances of me getting a reversal?  Im only 25 and am hoping for the best. I dont recommend the TL at all Ive had so many issues with it and it has caused me serious depression that required medications.

I just read your post as I am searching and you say you would like another baby! I do not know how ole this is but I had a tubal reversal done on 4-13 after my TL 7 1/2 years ago. I had them triple burned and he put them back together. Dr. RIchard Levin is a leading specialist in this field since before I was born. It cost me 6,200 and this included hotel stay for two nights, the night before and the night after. hotel shuttle to the hospital, surgery,meds everything!!!! i did not even give the hospital my insurace card and all I had to say was I was a patient of Dr. Levin. You can look him up at babiesbylevin.com He is the nest and offers free services afterwards till you are pregnant! Even another surgery if needed. he is in Louisville KY but he has had ladies come from Alaska, and from the middle east and further. He has the best bedside manners and is like an old friend not just  a dr. There is also a support group I am a memebr of for ladies deciding to have one and aafterwards. We have ladies even in their 50's get the surgery and concieve (conceive). He looks over your operative report, checks FSH if needed and Sperm then calls you on the phone for free to tell you if you are a good canidae for the surgery. Best of luck to you! Oh I lost my daughter at 23 weeks and she only lived for three hours. I had my TL about a month afterwards too. I fully understand, but also know we were not in a state of mind to make such a decision. Sorry about your loss! I miss my Emma everyday! She would be 8 this August! :(

I am a 29 year old mother of four 6 years ago after my last girl my husband and I thought it would be best for mr to have a TL. Since then I have divorced my ex and I am engaged to a wonderful man. I recently have been experiencing pain in my lower abdomen. I have also been spotting, I had the procedure done immediatly after given birth and the Dr. said it was called the clip procedure. If there is anyone who may have had this done and has gotten pregnant or experiencing complications please give me some advice.

I am a mom of three i had a tubal ligation done 6 years ago.  Because of painful periods i have also been on the depo to supress my periods for about four years.  I am newly engaged and my fiance' and i want a  child, so i missed my depo that was due last month and usually when i miss my dose, i get a period about a week after i am late with the dose.  This time i have not yet gotten a period (it's been about 4 weeks) and have had some pregnancy symptoms but the home tests (2) have been negative.  I too cannot afford the reversal procedure, can anyone tell me of anything i might be able to do, besides the reversal, that can increase my chances of getting pregnant?

I had a tl (12/2001) cut and burned, after a c-sec a baby girl. Only wanted 3 children and she was my last. My Dr didnt counsel me at all just told me it was perminate. Two months later she died of SIDS. Felt like I wanted to die myself but I still had two other children to live for. But since then Ive been wanting to have another baby and every now and then I thought I was pregnant because of late periods.(mind playin tricks) I had to start the pill because I spotted after periods and have been on them for 4 yrs and they helped with the spotting but in July I didnt take the pill and got very bad period so I re started it in August but since Im 35 now I stopped and the pill. my periods come 24th of every month on time and even came 24th in july when I didnt take the pill. But July was the last time I got my period.  On the 24th of August I cramped for about a week but no blood. I had lower back aches, light headness, dizzy, cramps, urinating a lot, wanting to eat everything and still no period. Ive taken 4 hpts starting from 1wk late n all neg. Even did first morning urine 1 wk ago and still neg. Now 3 wks late and I barely get cramps but stll lower backaches. I hve a dr appt thursday with my primary physician to get a blood test because planned parenthood wont give me blood test unless they feel its ness. I must say to anyone thinkin to have TL PLEASE DONT DO IT!!!! U Never know what may happen that will make you want more children. Get the IUD they have a 5yr and a 10 yr and I wish I knew more about them at the time I had my TL I wouldve gotten it. Ill let you all know what happen at the Dr.

I had my tube tied and burnt 11 yrs ago.  I have every symptom of being pregnant.  Breast have gotten huge, tender and nauseau, dizzy, cramping very tired . i was bleeding heavily for 3 days. I went to the er. they took a pregnancy test ,it was positive. They didn't even tell me . When I asked the nurse if they have gotten in touch with my obgyn ,she asked me for what? She said for your pg test? I was confused. She said it came out pos. then she continued to tell me they documented it as a negative result.  It was late at nite and I was on pain medicine, I didn't question her.  They found nothing on my cat scan and proceeded to send me home on strong pain meds.  I spoke to my dr. the next day he said he wants to do an exploratory lapo. on me.  He said I may have endometreosis.  I don't think the hospital even told him my test was positive.  I'm wondering how this could be.  Any clues?

I am also hoping that GOD will bless with me with another baby. I too got my tubes tied and regretted it- while I was still in the hospital. At the time I got my tubes tied was during my C-section in 2006. At the time me and my boyfriend were unemployed and n ot very responsible even tho were older and should have been. My mom also was the biggest influence on me getting my tubes tied. Well after our daughter was born, we completely turned our lives around. Boyfriend is now my husband. He has a very good job working for the city as a lineman. We just purchased  our new home. He is also the best father I have ever seen! He also has 3 grown kids and i have 2 older kids. Our little girl we have together has been such a huge blessing and I believe she was sent to us to change our lives. When she was about 6 months old I started researching tubal reversals and thats when I found out it is possible. I brought it up to my husband but he said he didnt want anymore kids, he just wants to spoil the one we have together. I begged and cried to him to the point that is caused arguments with us. He then said, lets wait awhile(well im getting old) now our child is 3 and I've been bringing it up again. He doesn't want anymore kids, he says hes too old,he's 51 now, i'm 37. I want this soo bad. I threaten to have the reversal, he says he will wear condoms. So I guess the only way I will have another child is by GODs help.
As far as the reversal for some of you ladies, check out Dr. Levin or baby's by levin center. I have done sooo much research on this and this is the best place to go. Don't go with cheapest doctor. Don't go with closest doctor. His prices are about 6900 but that covers everything and he will follow up with you til you get pregnant. He will help, for free, with fertility care as needed. He will re-do the surgery for free if for some reason the tubes re close. They have many options as far as paying for the surgery. You can apply for medical loans just like if you were to charge the surgery. If you don't qualify then you can get a co-signer. They didn't offer this a couple years ago. I almost applied last night without telling my husband but chickened out.

Please, anyone contact me with any pregnancy after a tubal ligation. I love to hear about it. my user name is my email. I had to spell it like that. Any of you that have had pregnancy symptoms, what ever happened. Many times I have had the symptoms too but I think it was just because I want it to be true so badly.

Hello ladies!

After reading every ones desprate attempt to get pregnant after a TL, this is one true story to leave you in awe. I had a TL after the birth of my 4th son in April 2007. I was unsure of the type of tubal, all I know is that I DID NOT want anymore children. I am 28 y/o and I just started my career as a paralegal, and I was at a point in my life that I knew I didnt want anymore children. Well I started dating this guy who had no children, but was unaware that I could not have anymore children, and I did not want to tell him because I thought it wasnt none of his business and just in case I needed a big come up on money I would tell him I was pregnant.+ I didnt think the relationship would go as far as it did anyways. I figured he wasnt my type anyways. I know ladies...NOT SO NICE.

Well, I finally decided I needed that BIG COME UP ( $ ) so i told him I was"P". I thought he was going to tell me to abort the baby, but my BIG PLAN blew up in my face. He actually wanted the baby:-o, and on top of that, he told his entire family. Everyone was so happy being so this was supposed to be his 1st child. Ladies, this man became everything I wanted in a man. He was like a dream come true. Everything you could wish a man to be, he was and more. After the big announcement to the world, he became so attached. He started rubbing on my belly, rubbing my feet, wouldnt allow me to do much of nothing for myself. I couldnt even bend over to tie my shoe without him doing it for me. I began to feel real bad about what I had done, but deep down inside I knew that even if I could have a baby, i wouldnt want it. Besides, I had just started my career for christ sakes!!!! and I wasnt mentally ready to start over. Well I guess GOD had other plans for me. He tought me a big lesson. This is story marks a true saying in the statement "There is power in the tounge".

My last period i told him was 10/25/09. Which it really was. I was trying to figure out a way to tell him I lost the baby. So I decided to wait until Nov. when my period came to tell him I miscarried, but he was so happy, and I didnt want to take the joy he had or break his heart, and to make matters even worst, he asked me to marry him. I really started to feel bad, and knew if I had told him the truth he would be devistated and probably wouldnt want to talk to me again. So I pushed it off for another month, and said I would tell him at the end of Dec.

Well ladies, I began to feel a little diffrent the entire month of Dec. I started urinating a lot, getting cravings, I picked up 2-3 lbs, uncontrollable sleep moments etc. the whole "pregnancy syndrome" ordeal. So I decided to take a PT and it was neg. I knew God had loved me so much, that he would do that to me so i brushed it off. Well my period became due and I got 1 day of light bleeding and that ws it. Nothing! Nada! Zip!   WELL I DECIDED TO TAKE A 2ND PT WHICH WAS (+) AND A BLOOD TEST CONFIRMED THE PREGNANCY. AT THE DR. APPT TODAY I FOUND OUT THAT NOT ONLY AM I 9 WEEKS PREGNANT, BUT I AM 9 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH FATERNAL TWINS, AND THEY ARE IN MY UTERUS WITH A STRONG HEART BEAT!!!!!! I HAD A LATERAL TUBAL BOTH SIDES TIED/CLIPPED/BURNED LIED, DIED, AND LAID TO THE SIDE, BUT GOD SAID OTHER WISE. SO NOT ONLY DID I GET PREGNANT, I GOT 2 MIRACLES, LESS THAN 3 YRS AFTER TUBAL, AND NO EPTOPIC PREGNANCIES!! DUE DATE IS JUNE 29TH. WEDDING IS APRIL 14, 2010. Sorry to be so long winded, but this story needed to be told...to give hope to those who need it. NOW WE WILL HAVE A FAMILY OF 6...WOW THAT'S A BIG NUMBER, AND JUST TO THINK IT ALL STARTED AS A PRANK. I GUESS I HAVE TO PUT THAT CAREER ON HOLD AFTER ALL!

Hey all,  Just a little story of hope for all of you wanting a baby after tubal.  I had a tubal in Nov.2006 at the same time as my c-section with my 3rd child.  I had terrible pregnancies with all of them - high BP, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes.  After baby #2 my Dr. said no more but I HAD to have my 3rd and I got my way but Dr. said absolutely I would have a tubal this time.  Anyways, they cut, took out a section of each and sutured all ends - supposed to be the most sure fire, never get pregnant again method.  Apparently, not so much.  In Feb. 2008, I conceived baby #4.  I had just finished nursing baby #3 about a week before.  Complained to hubby about thinking I was lactose intolerant because I was feeling so bloated.  After missed period, decided to try a pregnancy test but didn't think it was at all possible.  Surprise, 3 pregnancy tests, doctor confirmation that it was in the uterus and a shellshocked husband later, baby #4 was on the way.  All went well, and Dr. told us to bring a camera into the scheduled csection to take pics of what had gone wrong.  Absolutely nothing!!  Tubes were still taken apart, no regrowth at all.  Still not sure how our little miracle made his way but in Oct 2008 baby entered the world happy, healthy and God's surprise gift to us.  Had clips attached to all ends of my tubes and hubby went for vasectomy a month later - hahaha.  Hope our story gives hope to some of you.

after 2 great kids I had my tubal done in Nov. 05. 6 months after my daughter was born. I was very surprised to find out that i'm pregnant!!! My doctor sent me to get a ultrasound immediately due to risk of ectopic pregnancy but, all is well. I disregarded the 3 missed periods due to my tubal so even when I took the test and it showed positive it was such a shock I took another one. Baby is healthy so far with a due date Aug. 31st. wish me luck! All of you that are hoping it is unlikely but not impossible it does happen im proof LOL!!!

i am experiencin no symptoms at all and found out im having an eptopic pregnancy. can you give me any advice as to a safe moral way of saving possibly both of us. I dont believe in abortion and value my own life as well as my childs. The high priest and the bishop have given me options but my dr doesnt want to try them. I am catholic and was told by ten weeks my tubes can rupture causing death in both which is not what i want. so my bishop and arch di sat down and we discussed having the section of my fallopien tube that the baby is in completely removed which by the standards of our church and my condition and knowing theres doubtedly any chance to save the baby, would be the moral and only way excepted by the lord. I really would accept any advice you can help me with.

yes you can still get pregnant. i had my tubes tied after my last baby, and just a few months later i woke up with severe pain in my stomach and was rushed to the emergency room by ambulance to find out that i was 8 to 9 weeks pregnant and the baby was in my fallopian tube which was attached to my ovary. and my stomach had been feeling up with blood for the past few days and i then had to be rushed into surgery where they had to remove the baby along with my left fallopian tube and ovary. i also had to have a blood transfusion cuz i lost over half the blood in my body. the doctor said that if i would have waited any longer i more than likely would have died. so be careful.

I have not read very many stories about those of you who have had your tubes CLAMPED.  In Nov. 2006, after the birth of my 4th child, I had my tubes DOUBLE CLAMPED on both sides.  I was wondering what are the chances of becoming pregnant with this type of TL. The docor just said that it was double clamped on both tubes, he did not say anything about cutting, tying or burning, so if any of those were done I was not told so.  Anyway, I have regular periods every 33 days.  On March 12, 2 WEEKS before my period was due to start, I had light brown SPOTTING that lasted for 3 days, then nothing....then I was 11 or 12 days late for my period after it was due and had heavy bleeding for a day or 2 then it was light for a day or 2 after that.  Also when it was heavy, there were SMALL light colored chunks (skin colored/grayish) and some SMALL clots.   Does anyone think that i may be pregnant or had a miscarriage????  write me at crystrav1981 at live *******!  P.S.  I have been reading all of everybody's posts and i truly feel for you and wish the best and baby dust to you all!  (also been making me cry a lot)

I am so out of it and forgetful all the time too, so i forgot to list my symptoms: frequent urinating, cravings and food turnoffs, weight gain (10 lb), some nausea, heartburn, constipation, gas, tighter belly, sleep disturbances (one night, my husband said i was snoring and moaning a lot; i have had these things happen only with pregnancy...usually i beat my husband up in my sleep tho); clumsiness and loss of balance, forgetfulness, brain fog, run out of energy fast, being sleepy at work, joint pain where my thigh connects to my pelvis, which is another pregnancy syptom (symptom) i don't see mentioned above, and just "feeling pregnant"...i have not taken a hpt yet...i have one sitting in my bedroom, just waiting to be more sure that I might be pregnant because I am not too likely to be with the Tubes being tied and the way i've been bleeding and spotting makes me wonder if i had an early miscarriage...anyone have any ideas?  Would really appreciate it!

I had my tubes clipped almost 14yrs ago. I have 2 daughters and thought I was done at the time. The girls' father and I split 10yrs ago and I have not been really serious about anyone until now. I met a man that is amazing. He means everything, but I know he wants a baby and I feel like I will be taking that away from him if it's not possible with me. I love reading all of your stories. I have hope and inspiration now, and I think the whole purpose of leaving this comment is to feel connected to others, because there are times when we do need that, and to say thank you for sharing, and maybe ask for some prayers of hope and a miracle.

I have a much different delima than anyone on here, I am kinda feeling like the crazy woman at the moment.  I am 25 yrs old.  I had my BTL 6 months ago.  I have had 1 period the entire time!  I have read on webmd that there is a condition called "tubal litigation syndrome".  This is where blood supply is cut off from your litigation to your ovaries that produce all the hormones that keep us kicking.  The ones that keep us all feeling normal, but I have experienced synthoms such as memory loss, soreness, tiredness, and of course the feeling of throwing up.  This being said, this is all the symthoms of being pre-menopausal!  Scarey as hell for me.  I am only 25.  I have 2 beautiful kids, both premes.  If I am pregnant, then I am deffinately scared for its life because my body can only hold a 19.5 inch baby. After they reach that point, they decide to come out, and no medication can stop them!  I hope its cuz I am menopausal!  Not pregnancy.  Either way, I am screwed.   And the Drs wont give me any answers.  He said to come back in when I have another painful attack.  Am I suppose to crawl in there?  He must be sick in the head!

I had my tubes tied and burnt in 1995. I will be 38yrs old in Feb.  I think I may be pregnant. I had a light period that came 2weeks early this month. I think I would be around 9weeks not sure as I never keep a close track, did not think I needed to.  I have bloating, gas, stomach feels hard,  thought I had the flu last week, have headache off and on. I am normally a health person, and all of these symptoms I had with my second child, now 14yrs. I never had morning sickness with either of my kids and very few complications other than feeling full all the time and frequent urination which I now have started to experience.  I felt movement like a flutter on Monday and that was when it hit me. Could I be pregnant. My Husband had ask me the week before if I was and of course I said no how could I be had tubal.  Had very tender breast the past few weeks that I did think was odd but I have big breast, 38 DDD.  Never really see breast changes due to this.  I don't know if I should wait another month and see if anything changes or get a pregnancy test. Some of you said it did not read positive the first few times.  I don't need a baby at this point in my life, I now work full time and have a son going to collage next year and my youngest is 14yrs. We down sized our house a few years ago thinking it would be just the two of us in short order.  That being said I am not saying I don't want the baby. I would love one just not what I had planned. Now I have mixed emotions and don't know where to turn.  I always wanted more kids but knew we could not afford to give them everything.   I know that in my heart I would love to have a baby but the worry of having one at 38yrs old. I mean I will be 39 and my husband just turned 40 last month.  Any suggestion or thoughts would be helpful.

I have had my tubes tied 10 years ago and currently going thru a divorce from my husband. I met a man and now I think I am pregnant, as I have tender breast, no missed periods yet, slight pain in my lower stomache area.  I do feel tired occassionally, no sickness, just this feeling since I have a hardness in my lower extremeites.  I had flu like symtoms (symptoms).  I have discussed with co-workers and they are like 'you are not pregnant'.  So I am at a loss at this time since I thought when your tubes get tied you are done having children, despite the chances. I have never even heard of this happening until I have read all of the posted comments and am amazed by them.  Women is this really possible. Really.

I am thirty six and had my tubes tied and burned almost 10 years ago.  I had a very light short period last month.  Since then have all signs of being pregnant that I did with my other three children, but now my breast are producing Colostrum. I took two home test that came out with no result.   My friends say that I took the test too soon and that I need to wait a few more weeks.  My husband and I would be very happy if I was pregnant again, but due to previous miscarriages I am scared, and want to know as soon as possible.  Would like advice from anyone who has been where I am now.

I am 40 yrs old and will be 41 next month. Last Tues. as I was sitting in the tub I watched as my stomach started doing waves. I said no way, so I checked my breast and had a discharge like milk as I had in the past with my 4 other children. Now I'm worried, I took 2 hpt and went to the doctors office and took the blood test and everything is negative. Now mind you I had a tubal that I was told was a perminent proseedure done 12 yrs ago. Could it be that because I was on my cycle at the time that the test were performed could cause a negative result or what could this be. My family doctor said it's probably gas, but I know the difference. I have had heartburn out of this world and my stomach is not hard at the bottom it's huge at the top right under my breast to right at waist line. the most confusing thing to me is I feel pregnant but with all my other pegnancys when I missed my cycle I knew I was prego. This movement in my stomach has been happening on a daily basis for a month now and in the beggining I did just chalk it up to gas till I saw the milky substance and the waves and I know it's not gas I know what my body feels and I also have alot of swelling going on in the legs and feet even my hands and don't talk about the urge to pee all the time and the headaches and being tired. Anybody out there with advice that might help I'm open to hear them. Thanks again!!

I had a postpartum tubal ligation, Nov 25, 1981.  They removed a portion of each of my tubes, then cartarized them (this is a 3-5 chance of 1,000 of ever getting pregnant).  I was really pushed into having it done, by my family and my doctor, from the time I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd child, at the age of 21, so I did it.  Back then it was kind of taboo to have more than 2 kids.  I had gotten pregnant on the pill.  I later became very depressed since I had always wanted a little girl, and had 3 sons.  I prayed secretly about it, and I was pregnant, by the time my 3rd son was 6 months old, with triplets, of course.  The doctor would not even see me for an appt, at first,but I had,what I thought were flu-like symptoms for 3 weeks.  I finally got an over the counter preg. test, and it was positive.  Finally my OB-GYN doc would give me an appt.  He was so upset he ordered another preg. test and an unltrasound at the same time, until I reminded him that I would have to empty my bladder for the preg, test, and needed it full for the ultrasound.  At my 5th month, I had another ultrasound, and there was only 1 baby.  They said my body had just absorbed the 2 fetus that were weak.  Guess what I had a little girl.  Not long after her birth we divorced due to him trying to kill me, and raised 4 children alone for 17+ years.  She is now 28 with her first little girl.  I am convenced that God granted me my request.  I later had some problems and had to have a hysterectomy at 27.  So have faith and if it is God's will, it will be done.  Everytime life has been hard, and it certainly has,  I remember that God is real, and there for me, everytime I think of my sweet daughter.

I had a tubal ligation Feb 09 and thought everything was great now were are in 2011 and I have yet to start my period twelve days late and scared as hell. My breasts are tender and no cramps just the same as if I was pregnant. Pregnancy test came back negative, yet it also came back negative with my second and wow. That child was planned. but the fifth not so much. I need some advice. Scared yet somewhat antsy. I like my routine in life, really don't like change, but can adapt. My husband has no idea yet! LOL.

I also forgot to mention that my cup size has gone up from a B to a C cup a very large C cup I have also gained a few pounds fifteen to be exact. (i like to blame that on quitting smoking in Oct 10) but holy hannnah, I feel as if I am but I really need to know eh! I have also had a cervical cancer scare this summer and finally came out negative and maybe it is hope that I can still create or maybe it is just peri-menopausal crap.  Don't really know what to say or do at this point until I have my period or a baby, I would be happy either way.

If you all have anything to tell me please do, really don't know what to expect! Looking for an answer. Hoping someone can give me a good one or something I really need to hear, (I guess eh!)

I had my TL in 2001 after my 4th child. I had 3 wonderful girls with my ex, then after I married my current hubby I became pregnant and ended up having a c-sec. and a son. So while they were in there I asked them to tie my tubes. The doctor told me that she burned them an made the sides look like tea cup handles. Well now I am weeks away from turning 40 and I have  bad cramping in my left side,my breast hurt and I have BAD heartburn. Im not late my period is not due for a week,and its always on time. The last time that pamprin didnt work for my cramps I was pregnant, also the last time that i had heartburn like this. Can it happen?

  Hi there..I'm a 38 year old, mother of 2 boys...Reading everyone's replies about having babies after a tubal ligation is really giving me a ton of encouragement. See almost 10 years ago I had my tubes done during my C-section with my son who was born 1-31-01..
  But my last "normal"  period was on Oct. 6th.... I got what I thought was going to be my next cycle early. on Nov. 1st. but that started completely different... really light and only lasted about 21/2 days... in both Dec and Jan I started bleeding around the 7th and 8th which was normal cycle time for me.. but again the bleed was different.. lighter and only lasted about 3 to 4 days... other than my typical 5 to 7.
  Ever since mid Nov. I've been experiencing typical pregnancy symptoms..  Like fatigue, enlarged and sometimes painful breast, frequent urination, some nausea  in Nov and Dec but nothing now. ( I only had morning sickness with my other 2 pregnancies in the first month also. ) My abdomen is also getting bigger and I've gained some weight.

  My problem is I haven't gotten a positive HTP yet. the last one I took was in mid Dec. I have no insurance and no Drs. will even see me once they find out I've had a TL and neg. tests. I even think I feel movement already .. I can't get a blood test done without a drs. order ... I'm at a loss here I mean I guess  I just have to wait and see what happens. but if I'm pregnant I'd like to get pre-natal care.  and without proof other than what I'm feeling... It's impossible.  Any suggestions are appreciated..


     Thank You.. Colleen

I find this to be a little crazy...I had my TL 11-03-2007 after my second son was born C-Sectoin...I am the most normal of normal period girls!! I was supposed to start on the 17th of this month...here we are it's the 23rd...Little worried really don't want it to be a tubal pregnancy...Now the boys father and I separated not long after my second son was born...about 4 months after I kicked him out...I met the man of my dreams!! Now we are married and he has no children of his own (finding that i see this often in your stories)
I don't well won't get my hopes up...but I sure hope that God has answered my prayers for this!!

We are in the same boat in the same time frame this year. I got my tubal done with my second c-section december 27, 2002. I do not know how it was done, but I'm starting to guess most drs. are doing clamps? Well, low and behold I was supposed to start my period this month, I had forgotten the exact date, last month it was somewhere between the 16th and 19th and I am not one to be late myself, only maybe one day or just plain a day or two early. I AM LATE!! It is now the 25th!!! I had figured out I had started my last period atleast by the 19th, well, the latest I should've started by any means would've been the 23rd, giving some way for 28 days in february. I usually have a period for about 6-8 days on average so I do know myself pretty darn well. I started having really sore breasts like I would the week I was expecting to start (this is why I say I should've started the 19th!), then two days later they weren't as sore but they're still sore and my areola has gotten a tad darker from being light colored, my nipples are tender and get erect which is abnormal unless I'm cold or in the shower, etc., I am gassy, have had cravings, almost thru up in the walmart food section yesterday just from the smell, I'm more tired than usual, not moody just seem very chipper lol, I'm peeing alot and even made sure to get a urine test done to make sure there is no infection and don't know why they didn't do a pg test, I took two pg tests a couple days ago that were negative. I AM FREAKING OUT!!! Lol, I won't be upset either way because I am an adult and if it is to be it will, I can't hate a child or myself because nature wants its way, just worried it may be eptopic or that I might just have a tumor or cysts or something worse. I wish the best of luck to you. I am planning to have my fiance' of the past year take me to the hospital today because I have had one hectic week worrying.

I've had 5 babies and cannot afford nor do I want to have any more children... that is why we chose to get the ligation and vasectomy done obviously!

Im a 31 y/o mother of 6. I had a TL done after my twin girls were born 6/24/09. Three months ago, I had a heaviness feeling in my abdomin (abdomen) along with pressure. I called the doctor and they have told me my muscles in my uterus are stretched from all the kids i had. My lmp two months ago came a week early started getting really bad headaches, dizzy spells. I was thinking of how i felt while i was pregnant with my twins and thought to myself this is how i felt pregnant. SO i waited to see how my period was this month and i came 4 days late and lasted 2 days. I made dinner and just out of the blue i got really nauseated from the smell. My belly is getting bigger, i have really bad back aches, sore breasts, very tired, and getting more nauseated. I broke down last night and bought two tests.The first test i thought was neg but later that night i seen what looked like a faint line in the positive so i retested this morning and i got a plus sign. Im worried to tell my husband that we are expecting  our 7th child. Everyone was telling me you cant get pregnant after having a TL well i guess i proved eveyone wrong on that note. Now to make a drs appt. Very nervous to do that. I am so excited for this and to all the women out there wanting another baby after a TL just keep praying and keep in mind that it can happen and it is happening more and more. If its meant to be it will happen

I had a TL at age 23 11/09. Every month, it seems like I have pregnancy symptoms;  super swollen tender breasts, nausea, fatigue, pee more etc. This month seems to have an added symptom; light pink discharge 1 week after ovulation/1 week before period due. Right after I had the discharge, my breasts are now swollen, pee so much its annoying, dizzy/light headed, stabbing like pains in pelvis and extreme thirst. I think having tubals done just screws up out bodies to the extreme.

I am a mother of 4. Had my tubes tied during a c-section with my son in Nov 2005. Just recently married in September. My period is late and I feel all the signs as the previous pregnancies. I have NEVER missed a period as much as I wished I had! I took a hpt....negative. Not sure what to do next??? Waiting can be detrimental to a normal, healthy pregnancy. And there is already risk of it not be normal.No insurance. But we all know the E.R. can not refuse a patient care. Maybe thats my only option in finding out. I know my body! The fatigue, tiredness, the pain in my pelvic area and lower back, the early cravings & hunger, the tender breast & the sex drive :)!!!! The success stories are very helpful in giving much needed hope. Pls continue to share and give advice! I will keep you posted! Be Blessed!

I am 39 years old, divorced with three incredible children. 12,10, and 7. I like so many of you had my tubes tied 5/12/04, and I am regretting this horrible decision. Now, I am with a incredible man who loves us but wants a child of his own. So, I am holding out hope, I spoke with my OB/GYN last year about this. He told me that he has had women come into his office 8-10 years after their TL's pregnant. Its rare but it happens, so lets hope and pray that this happens for all of us as well. Till then I am I am following my ovulation and praying that we get our miracle too.

Well got my results from the Ultrasound.But my husband and I both saw a crescent moon shaped thing.I have no idea what it was, cause they never explained what it was. When they called to tell me the results, they said everything was normal. If that's true, then what was the crescent shape we saw. I'm still having all the same pregnancy symptoms. So, I now have an appointment with the OB/GYN tomorrow. I hope I get some results this time. Babydust to all and good luck.

Well I finally got some answers. I have Interstitial Cystitis. Which is sometimes referred to as Painful Bladder Syndrome (PBS) - is a long-term, yet treatable, inflammatory medical condition of the bladder wall. The doctor also thinks I may have Endometriosis. I also am having blood work to find what is causing the rest of my pregnancy like symptoms. I am scheduled for surgery October 31st to treat my I.C and Endometriosis. Hope this helps some of you. Pregnancy symptoms don't always mean your pregnant. It very well could be a medical condition causing your symptoms. Even though I would have prefered to have been pregnant. Even at my age of 43. But that wasn't the case. So you should definitely see your doctor. Explain all of the symptoms you are having. Good luck to you all.

My story is alittle different. I am 28 years old and got my tubes cut and burnt 5 yrs ago after I had my one and only child. I have never really had regular periods, but in Sept of 2010 they had to remove a golf ball size cyst off of my left ovary. After that if starightened them out for a while up until a few months ago. But the whole 9 months I was pregnant with my son, I had a period, no major symptoms and for the first 4 months of my pregnancy Ikept getting negative test results. I was almost 3 months along when the dr did an ultrasound. I would like to have another child now that my son is in school. Does anyone have any suggestions? The dr's say itll cost me $2600 DOWN PAYMENT just to get a reversal started. I have state insurance so Im understanding that they wont cover a reversal unless its a medical emergancy. PLEASE HELP! I am open to anything.

I am 35 I had a tl almost 10 years ago I am having some pregnancy symptoms but am unsure. It would be a blessing because 2 years after having the procedure I have regreted it. I am nervous about taking a home pregnancy tes yet know I really need to. My last cycle was in july and I had 2 within a short period of time. In August I spotted but nothing and have nothing since. I have brest tenderness fluttering feelings in the lower abdominal and out of the blue have had slight headaches with nausea and even having calstrom coming from both breast. I have heard and even witnessed pregnancies after TL however, I have also been told many hpt read negative even when pregnant any suggestions on how long I should wait before taking one to get accurate results?

I got my tubes tied in 2004. I have had regular periods ever since...no complications. I began dating another man with no kids.  As the rest of these stories have went...I am now over a week late and smells are making me want to throw up.  Im afraid and excited at once.  Getting a test after work today.  I wonder is there a higher chance of pregnancy with clamps than other methods

Hi, I've had similar symptoms. Had a tubal in 2001, have 2 teenagers 17 (almost 18) and 15. My period is regular, but was 2 weeks late then I had bleeding, not like my regular period. We all know how our regular cycle feels and "smells". Anyway, my temp had been up for weeks 99.5, today and past few days have been 98.6 - 97.9. The day the bleeding started I did have some clots and it started off light in color. But I still have "symptoms", hungry more often which is weird cuz I can go with eating 1x a day, increased smell sensitivity, nausea and m/c all times of the day, weird taste in my mouth.
I've had negative pee sticks but I am going to have a beta test only because of my symptoms and the fact that post-tubals don't show up on urine tests properly.

Peace I had a tubal ligation 15years ago, been feeling sick , the dr. said I couldnt be pregnant and that its probably fibrois,  I had a ultra sound did to see if I had fibrois, it came back that I didnt. The dr. check me and said that my uterus is getting larger. I have another ultra on dec. 16, 2011, in about 2 weeks. Am I pregnant, I hope so, if I am ,im about 14weeks and I think I keep feeling something move in my stomach. Could it be, I hope so, what do you guys think it could be.

Well I had a tubal when I had my son 2 years ago, and tonight I got a positive pg test.  I was pg in Aug.  I was 8 days late then had terrible bleeding and cramping.  Sep and Oct were both normal, now I am four days late.  I am calling my dr. tomorrow to get an ultrasound to make sure the placement is not in my tubes.  I have two children, 5 and 2 and struggled with fertility issues with both of them, so this is terribly ironic to me.  But if it is GOD plan then so be it.

I had my tubes tied in mid July 2010 after the c-section of my 4th child. Here it is December 4, 2011 and my last menstrual cycle was the first week of September 2011. I took two home pregnancy tests and left them on the sink in the bathroom only to return about twenty minutes later with a faint positive sign. I then read up on it saying that if it is left more than ten minutes then it could be a false positive from an evaporation line. My breasts feel hot and heavy, ive been eating food like crazy, having to urinate often, large increase of vaginal discharge, and ive been tired and moody. I can't really afford to go buy more pregnancy tests because they are so expensive! And I hate to go to the doctors office and look like a fool thinking that i'm pregnant after a tubal. I have been doing research on what a tubal pregnancy would look like and I don't have any of those symptoms, so I really don't know what to think. Any advice??

I am 40 years old and am needing some advice. I had a tubaligation in December 2000 after delivering my fraternal twins via c-section. I am re-married now to a younger man and he has no children at all and really wants a biological child. I haven't had a period now in 2 months and have never been late unless I was pregnant. I have taken 3 home pregnancy tests and all were negative, however my breasts are very tender and I am having headaches all the time. Is there a possibility that I may be pregnant? I am not sure how my tubaligation was done, but it will be 12 years this December since I had it done. If anyone can offer me any advice I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much in advance.

Had a tubal ligation back in 2008 after an emergency C-section with my daughter. After five pregnancies, miscarrying 3 children, and then the last two that made it ended up being high risk pregnancies...I was tired. And my doctor granted my request to have a tubal ligation. I am regretting it big time. My husband and I wanted at least one more child, and while I enjoy not having to be on birth control or remembering to use condoms, I hope beyond hope that I am one of those cases where I will be pregnant again. I can't go in for a reversal right now, but I have been having symptoms of tender breasts, feeling worn out more than normal as of late, and I had some cramping which I should not have had because my cycle had ended a week and a half before hand. Not to mention the fact, I popped a stitch on my bra the other day. It felt tighter than normal. And I have NEVER had this problem with this bra before. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Now while it will suck being pregnant right now because I am renewing my vows in 8 weeks, and I have a wedding dress and everything that has been altered to fit my now slim figure, I am hopping that this new start with my husband, will be further blessed with a new little one. I took a hpt this morning, and a light half a line formed at the top of the "base line" of the test. I'm not sure if it is a defective test, or it is starting to pick up on pregnancy hormones. But, we will see.

I had my tubes cut and tied the day after I delivered my son in 2004.I returned to the doctors 3mnths later with a knot in my abnomen and I swore it was moving! my doctors asured me it was impossible and home tests showed negative.They sent me to a surgen 2weeks later, who said it was a blockage due to constipation and  had me take a surgery prep kit to clean me out.I had been spotting for over a month now and aweek after the prep kit,I began to bleed,alot! I collapsed during Thanksgiving dinner and was rushed to the hospital.They ran blood tests and it came back positive for pregnancy.I passed out.
long story short... I was 2and a half mnths pregnant in the tubes and the baby was trapped on the other side of the knot they tied.The tube had split and I had been bleeding internally for over a month.My organs were floating in blood when they went in to remove the fetus.They said my doctor had to leave the room during surgery,go across the hall and pray for me because he did not know how he could save my life,but he returned and finished the surgery along with a blood transfusion and I made it.God wasn't through with me yet and my doc says I trully am one in a million.But I know that I serve a Mighty God.

Dear Regina: More likely are pre menopause symptoms. Women usually don't talk about it. But the possibility of a woman making healthy eggs or eggs at all after 45 is extremelly small and, if on top of that you add the fact of the BTL, well is not chance that we are pregnant. Pre menopause symptoms can start at 35 yrs and last up to 10 yrs, and we will notice weight gain and all kinds of symptoms. Accepting that we are approaching menopause is not easy, because is the end of our possibilities of having a child.

Yes, it happens, if you are still making helathy eggs, you could be pregnant. See adoctor it could be other things as well. A pregnancy test will be your first thing to do. The first urine in the morning is the most accurate.

I have a question for anyone willing to try to give me an answer. My mom has had her tubes tied for over 16 years and now has every last symptom of pregnancy (suspects to be about a month along.) She just turned 42 years old last week and has been pre-menopausal for about a year or so. If she is pregnant, does the baby have a chance of being born and being healthy? I've heard about the tubal pregnancies being a threat but how big of a chance does that have at effecting the baby? This will be, if positive, her third pregnancy. Thanks

I'm 37 years old with two kids...an almost 16-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son.  I had my tubal after the c-section delivery of my son...on March 14, 2002.  I was 26 at the time.  That was 10 years, 5 months ago.

Three years ago I also underwent Ablation surgery in an attempt to eliminate my heavy periods.  It didn't completely work, though it didn't make them easier.  (NOTE - a 100% success rate with this surgery also eliminates any chance of getting pregnant again).  But, like I said, mine wasn't a complete success.

Now, I find myself nearly 2 weeks late for my period, which has arrived like clockwork for the past 25 years.  The only two times in my life that I've been late, I've been pregnant.    My cycle is so set in stone that my husband is already convinced a baby is on the way.

I know the failure rate for a tubal is low, but it does happen.  And that would be just my luck.

There is a HPT in my immediate future...God help me.

I almost feel stupid writing about this.  I think I might be going crazy. I feel so silly.  I have been feeling some symptoms of pregnancy, but now I'm not sure if I'm making myself feel these symptoms or if they are real.  I had a tubal ligation 1 year ago.  I have been feeling on and off nausea, difficulty digesting, some on and off tingling in my breasts, but not really soreness.  I had my period, but it lasted only 2 days instead of 5 days - it was abundant 1 day (not just spotting). BUT, what makes me wonder is that on top of the on and off nausea and breasts and headaches, my middle child (I have 3) has been soooooooo clingy to the point of not wanting any of the other kids to touch me, I have to eat holding his hand.
I took 5 HPT and 1 blood test and they were all negative. Am I going crazy??? Is it secret wishful thinking? I know I probably can't handle another baby, but deep down inside would really want to be pregnant....Does that make sense???

They say that with HPT aren't as likely to show up positive after a tubal ligation.  Best suggestion is wait 2 weeks and get a blood test.  That will give you body enough time to figure out what's going on whether you're pregnant or not
