  • yes.. my child development teacher in high school had her tubes tied and ended up getting preggers.. you should have your husband get cut its more affective.. you mite wanna take a test cuz it sounds like you are..

  • well its always possible. and the doctors probably told you to wait with unportected sex for a while after you got your tubes tied. Depends on the method they used though. But still, yes you could be.. only a test will tell you. I dont really like the first answer: "you should have your husband get cut its more affective"..

    because SHE can have her tubes untied (again, depends on which method was used). His is permanent. Its easier for a woman.

    But anyway. I wish you good luck.

  • It is rare, but possible to conceive after a tubal ligation.

  • It is possible, but rare as mentioned above.

    As for a vasectomy being permanent...yes it's considered to be. But then so is a tubal. BOTH can be reversed later, and BOTH are iffy for the reversal to work.

  •  I have NEVER heard of this and I researched it  thoroughly before my tubal.Sorry but I think  these women are misinformed. They should NOT be answering posts as important as this one without knowing the right answers. They are NOT Doctors!
