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!

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.

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. Could i be pregnant or its just my crazy body playing tricks on me?! Alexandra p
