  • oh wow, congrats! guess it was meant to be right? I've heard that some women get pregnant after a tubal ligation.. rare, but I've heard of it.

  • My doctor said there is a 1% chance of getting pregnant. After a tuballigation.

  • It's a very slim chance, but there is still that very small chance of getting pregnant, even after that. I would get to the dr soon, though, b/c it could be a tubal pregnancy, which could be very dangerous. Congrats, though!

  • Tubal Ligation is a very effective form of BIRTH CONTROL, but is not 100% effective... you can still get pregnant, about 1 in every 400 surgeries fail, resulting in pregnancy.

    it is also likely that it will result in an Ectopic Pregnancy, which can be life threatening. best you get checked out sooner rather than later, if you are 3 weeks late then you are about 7 weeks pregnant- make an appointment.

    YES, you CAN get pregnant after a Tubal Ligation.

  • Go to the doctor, or take another test and see if it's positive again...
