  • Did you have them just tied ? If so they do come undone after a few years. As for myself mine got tied ,cut & burned and I did that 10 yrs. ago no mishaps here .

  • I got mine clamped, and don't want to be pregnant again. Adoption I would agree to though. Had 2 rough ones.

  • I haven't had them done yet, but I was just wondering before I had them done.

  • Very slim, but it does happen. Over time, your chances increase as your body has a tendency to try to 'heal' itself and reconnect them.

    My cousin's wife had an extopic pregnancy within a year or two of having hers done. It's a mystery as to how it happened... they checked her out & they hadn't reconnected.

    A friend told me of a relative, also, that had 3 kids all about 2-3 yrs apart & then had hers tied. Within months she was pregnant again... with triplets.

    So yes, it does happen... but not likely.

  • I don't want to hear that, I'm late with my period, and almost 40, feel kind of old if that's why I'm late, despite tubes tied.

  • I could deal with that, my first one was born 3 months early, and my second pregnancy I gained a ridiculous amount of weight, with 2 c-sections, that's why I got mine done.
