Pregnant After Having Your Tubes Tied

Tubal Ligation is a great option for many women who have decided that they do not want to have any more children. But if you change your mind, can you get pregnant after having your tubes tied?

What Is Tubal Ligation?

Tubal Ligation is a great option for many women who have decided that they do not want to have children (or any more children). It is usually considered a permanent form of birth control. Tubal ligation is done by either “clipping” the tubes and tying them closed or burning them closed. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

How effective is tubal ligation?

The success rate for tubal ligation is said to be between 95 and 97 percent effective. This, of course, means that there is a chance of getting pregnant again after having your tubes tied. Doctors say that there is only a very slight risk of becoming pregnant again after tubal ligation. Most say that the risk is between one and three percent. Doctors say that within one year of having a tubal ligation done, about five out of one thousand women will become pregnant. After five years, an average of thirteen out of one thousand women will become pregnant.

Why does pregnancy occur?

Pregnancy is possible after a tubal ligation if the ligation was not done properly, or if you were already pregnant at the time of your ligation surgery. However, those reasons are pretty rare. The most common reasons for a pregnancy after tubal ligation is that the tubes simply “grow back together”. This most commonly occurs if your doctor used the “clipping” method rather than the burning method.

What if you get pregnant after tubal ligation?

If you do get pregnant after tubal ligation, your pregnancy will probably be considered high risk. This is because pregnancies that occur after tubal ligation have a much higher risk of being ectopic pregnancies. In fact, around thirty or forty percent of pregnancies after tubal ligation will be ectopic pregnancies. However, many women who get pregnant after having their tubes tied go on to have very healthy pregnancies, and healthy babies.

What to do?

If you are considering having a tubal ligation done, be sure to talk with your doctor about what the risks of pregnancy are. He or she will be able to give you advice or suggest the best treatment method to ensure that you do not get pregnant again after ligation. There are new methods of sterilization emerging today, such as tubal implants that are much, much less likely to result in pregnancy than tubal ligation.

    There is a very good chance for you to get pregnant when you had sexual intercourse during your ovulation date. Your ovulation date is considered to be your most fertile day in such a way that your ovaries release eggs. Once you had your eggs released, the sperm cells will eventually fertilize it during sexual intercourse with your partner and this will mark the start of your pregnancy.

    You may be experiencing the early sign of pregnancy. The earliest time you can take a home pregnancy test is two weeks after you miss you period. Do it first thing in the morning as your morning urine contains the highest concentration of hCG (the pregnancy hormone).

    It is possible that you are pregnant if you’re recently having unprotected sex. You may try taking a home pregnancy test 2 weeks after your missed period to know if you are pregnant or not.

    It is highly unlikely to get pregnant after having your tubes tied without getting a tubal ligation reversal procedure. However, there are cases wherein you can have an ectopic pregnancy which can be dangerous for you. It is best that your consult your doctor and have tests done to determine if you’re pregnant or not.

    Tubal ligation is considered permanent birth control so it means that you will not be pregnant unless a tubal ligation reversal procedure is done.

    I had my 3rd child in July 2013.. I had my tubes tied afterwards.. It was also my 3rd C-section.. Since then my period has been very regular.. Always the same time of each month.. I’m 5 days late.. I know an at home pregnancy test is too early to show.. Is there anyway of finding out sooner? I’m a bit worried!

    Are you sure, I’m hoping you are right….but I had my tubes tied 2 years ago and we have been using a condom ever since except this week, and 2 days after I had a small bleed (very red) and I’m mid cycle, and thats very unusual for me?? Could that be an implantation bleed?
