pregnant after having a tubal ligation.

I had my tubes tied in 2005. I just found out yesterday that I am pregnant. The doctor ar the e.r wants me to take a pill to end the pregnancy even though they think I am about 3 weeks and have not found a baby anywhere yet. Has anyone gotten pregnant after having a tubel? Or do you know the chances that this baby may be viable. How long can I wait before I have to react. I do not want to end a pregnancy if I do not know if it is ok. Anyone have any words of advice.

personally, i'd wait until they can tell you for sure that the baby didn't implant in your uterus. that would be around 6 weeks, i'd think. I definitely don't think i'd be ending at 3 weeks. you may want to go see the physician who tied your tubes and see what he/she things.

anything is possible! had my tubes tied almost 7 yrs ago, i fell back in june and had cracked ribs, went to the ER and they said we cant xray you because you are preg! I almost fainted......you see cause I wanted to have my tubes reversed in a few yrs.  I just figured it was too expensive and look at me know.......i am about 8 or 9 weeks dont know for sure cause i didnt keep track of my period!  I think that your body has a way of "healing" itself. My tubes must have grown back together....amazing! good luck!

I was wondering if anyone experienced this or have any info. My friend had her tubes tied, burnt and clipped and she was wondering if she wanted more children in the future would IVF work for her she had her tubes tied now for 1 1/2 years now.....

Thanks for any Info...............................

yeah i think it would still work because they only cut her tubes so her ovaries still work so i think that she would be able to have ivf,

I am 39 and had my tubes tied a little over 5 years ago.  My husband and I want to have a baby now but cannot afford the tubal reversal.  If they would have told me at the time that insurance will NOT pay for the reversal I would NOT have done it!!!!!!  We are trying anyway!  We bought an ovulation test kit and are going to take our chances.  We keep hearing about all these women who have had their tubes tied and still get pregnant, so why cant it happen to us!!  We just need lots of prayers!!

I had my tubes tied 4 years ago and had a blood test done today for pregnancy [ should have gotten the results stat] in the meantime I have been doin research and the studies all seem to agree 1.4-2% can get pregnant after a tubial and the odds go up if its been longer than ten years since your tubial.  So toeveryone who is hoping and looking for the odds there they are.  Best of luck to you all

You need to at least wait until your next period is due, or at a minimum of 2 weeks from the previous sexual encounter to take a test.

My doctor told me after seven years,there is a possibility that I could get pregnant. What are mt chances? does anyone know?
Blank
1194973_tn?1385507504
Very low. It depends on the procedure done, but since ligation is meant to be permanent, it's unlikely you will. The odds are estimated at 1-1.8% failure rate after 10 years.

I had a tubal a year ago... About two month ago a had a flu virus and the doctor ask me when i had my last period. I told her that for the past 3 month i had my period twice a month.... So she asked me if i could be pregnant. I told her that i had my tb so she just said never mind but i still should see a gyno. Unfortunatley with 2 little kids and my crazy schedule at my job i didnt have the chnace to go now a month and 15 days later i completley missed my period. And my breast feel sore Im scared cause honestley i cant afford another baby but i would never be able stop the pregn. I havent done the test yet.

I had my tubes tied after the birth of my last child whos now 13 yrs old. 4 yrs after having the tl i got pregnant, but it had attached to the back of my uterus and had to be removed. I then had my tl redone. Now almost 9 yrs later i am 2 wks late for my period wich never happens. My period comes like clock work. My boobs are killin me, im constantly crampy n have a never ending back ache. Is there any possibility i could be pregnant? I wouldnt be heartbroken due to being in a new relationship and he has no children of his own n would love jus 1 child. I would love to give that gift to him and he wants me to be pregnant but i just dont think its possible

Wow this so so crazy I had my tubes tied like 15 years ago I am not sure what type of tubal ligation I had but its kinds scary to think I still could get pregnant. I wish there was a way the dr. could tell me if mine are still tied or not. I have had a few scares and every month I wonder. Congradulations on your baby. truelly a miracle I watch that show I didnt know I was pregnant now that show is very crazy kinda unbelievable.

I had my tubes tied 13 years ago and am experiencing pregnancy symptoms. When I called my doctor to make an appointment I was asked if I could be pregnant. When I told the lady on the phone my tubes were tied, she told me it didnt matter because tubes can come untied. I've been sick to my stomach, breasts have been overly tender, my "period" was anything but normal, running to the bathroom to pee everytime I turn around...I just dont feel right. I'm having an ultrasound done tomorrow before I see the doctor. I'm hoping I'm pregnant, but I'm not going to get too excited just yet.

I'm 37 and had my tubal 10 and 1/2 years ago after the c-section delivery of my second child.
My period is now nearly two weeks late....I've only been late twice before and have two children to prove it.  I'm suffering an almost constant dull ache in my lower back and occasional, mild abdominal cramping, along with a headache that just won't go away.  To top that off, my face is broken out in a way that it only does when I'm pregnant (I'm not one of those girls that "glow" during pregnancy).
I've read posts all over this site from women claiming the same symptoms and asking the same questions, but none of them ever come back to say "yay" or "nay".  I wish someone would tell me how their story ended.  Should I be shopping for a crib...or preparing my 37-year-old self for hot flashes?

I had a tubal ligation 14 months ago, after my son was born. I had a period every month around the same time up until 4 months ago. I missed my period for 2 months almost and now just a light spotting that last maybe a day. I have noticed more Vaginal discharge over the past couple days. I have taken to home test. the first one was a faint second line (thought maybe the evap line) and the second one was neg. I have been really sick this past week, which is something that normally never happens. Im really confused on this and was wondering if anyone had any advise or any similar things happening.

I had my tubal ligation (falope rings) done 3 years ago.  We chose it because I had very risky pregnancies and we were told any future pgs would be life-threatening.  Well in the past 3 years I found out about a health condition that had gone undiagnosed, and now that it is treated my health is 100% better and I have a great chance of a healthy pregnancy.  Last month I found out I was pregnant!!!!  However, my hcg never rose above 84 and I miscarried at 5 weeks.  The baby never got large enough to see on ultrasound, so we will never know if it was a tubal pregnancy or a uterine one.  Now my husband and I are trying to decide whether to try again with my body as-is, or to get a tubal reversal.  We don't want to conceive and miscarry over and over if my tube(s) are not allowing a fertilized egg to pass into the uterus...

I had my tubes tied in Feb, 2011. I was done having children. I have had 4 children so I thought I was done. But in April of this year I lost my 5 year old son to a rare form of brain cancer called DIPG. Now I want another baby! I knw they say that it is next to impossible to get pregnant with your tubes tied. But I know that nothing is impossible For God. I can not afford a reversal or IVF so I just need lots of prayer that god will perform a miracle.

If you take the pill to end the pregnancy then you have to take four more pills that will then make the baby come out like if it was your period... i was forced to have an abortion and that's the root i had to take but if there's a possibility you can carry the baby no harm done to both of you that's what i would do because if you take the pills to end it you will be in A LOT of pain

I wish they would only do tubals for women in emergency cases not a form of both control.. I've seen so many females that have had it done and now want a baby... Is it bc we know in most cases we can't?? But i know for sure i want a another child.. My youngest is 9 yrs and his is 5 months.. I know that don't add up..
