  • Yep, I know several people that have had children after a tubal. Sometimes it just doesn't take.

  • Yes. Failures are rare, but they happen. Take another test and if it comes up positive get to your doctor. The rate of ectopic pregnancy after tubal is very high, and it's not something you want to mess with.

  • Oh wow!!! That is so amazing! Yes, of course you can really be pregnant! A tubal ligation is not 100% afterall. Let me just say that I am completely and totally jealous of you! I had mine tied 2 1/2 years ago and have regretted it everyday since!
