    The only way a tubal ligation work, or so i am told, is if you get your tubes cut and burned not just tied.

  • I had my tubes cut and cauterized 2 weeks and 2 days ago. They made me sign a consent form stating that I understand the procedure is "not a guarantee of sterilization" Kind of threw me off guard since that's why I was having it done! But my OB had told me there is a failure rate of .5%-1%

  • Yes, it happens. PREGNANT.....that is the word. "Prego" is grade school. Sheeeeesh. Reading Cafe Mom is a laugh riot.

  • There was a woman on here recently who had conceived after having her tubes tied, they were trying intentionally to get pregnant after regretting the decision. Another on here conceived unexpectedly like 17 years after having her tubes tied.
