  • Did your doctor tell you that your period might get messed up? I am not familiar with tied tubes. I bet someone here will have an answer, though. My suggestion would be to follow up with the doctor that performed the surgery. Maybe someone here will have another insight.

  • Yes, it is possibly to get pregnant with your tubes tied. Although, the percentage is really like...something like 3% chance. I had a friend who had her tubes tied and 10yrs later she was pregnant. What a surprise for sure! The chances of that happening are slim to none but it does happen. You have a greater risk of tubal pregnancies so you need to watch for any signs of pregnancy or unusual pelvic pain.
