Yes, a woman can become pregnant after a tubal ligation. The risk of a tubal ligation failing is generally less than one percent, however there is some degree of difference depending upon the technique used to accomplish the tubal ligation as well as the age at which the patient underwent the tubal (younger women are more likely to fail). Also, if a woman becomes pregnant after a tubal she is more likely to have an ectopic pregnancy (specifically a tubal ectopic).
Given this last fact, I'd recommend a visit to your local ob/gyn.
