  • This question's come up a LOT lately -- might want to do a quick search to get the full spectrum of answers.

    I'll tell you what I told the others: I know of 2 cases personally. The first is my cousin's wife. She had an ectopic pregnancy after her tubal. I believe it was quite a while after - over a year, I'm pretty sure. Ectopic are the most common pregnancies following a tubal -- it seems the sperm can bypass it, but once it makes connections, starts to divide & grow, and reverses direction back towards the uterus... it doesn't fit any more.

    2nd case - the woman got pregnant with triplets within weeks of her tubal. She ended up with 6 kids under the age of 5.

  • Oh... and your chances increase over time. Apparently, your body has a tendency to try & heal itself, (according to my OB/GYN).

    Your odds also depend one which procedure your Dr uses, too --- tie/clamp, cut & tie/clamp, burn, completely remove, etc.

    I also HIGHLY recommend you research PTLS before going through with the procedure.

  • My sister works in Labor and Delivery as an RN and had a woman give birth to her second baby after her tubal liagation. But i don't think it happens that often.
