  • I had friend who got pregnant after a tubal ligation. It ruptured her falopian tube and was an ugly mess.

    I had the Essure procedure. You have to use protection for 3 months afterwards, but then they do a test (a hysterosalpingogram) to verify that your tubes are blocked. Voila -- no worries!

  • Not me personally, but I do know several people that have, yes, it is possible, but it has a greater chance of being ectopic. It also depends on how long it has been since your tubal and what kind of tubal they did at that time. The more current tubals I believe have a higher success rate (as in no pregnancy) but the older ones have a larger chance of "failure" so to speak
