Just had my tubes tied, should I worry?

I know some women still get pregnant after having this done. I was just wondering how often this occurs in real life? Anyone have this happen to them? or someone you know?

  • I had my tubes tied 1 year ago and I was parranoid ALL of the time thinking I would somehow get preg. again. I read online about it and it says if it should happen, it is more likely to happen after year 2 but your chances are slim. Doesn't take the worry away though. I have not been on birth control or used protection of any kind for this past year and knock on wood... my tubes seem to be tied tight !

  • I had my tubes tied 7 years ago and I haven't got pregnant yet, I wouldn't worry about it.
