Can you still get pregnant after having your tubes cut and tied?

I had my tubes cut and tied May 1, 2010 right after I gave birth to my son on April 30th 2010. I was supposed to start my period a few days ago and it still hasnt come. I have always had a normal period. Always started on time so i dont know whats going on. Can someone please give me some info. Kinda worried!!!!

  • Its uncommon but yes you can. But before you start freaking out After getting something like that done, it takes time for your body to readjust & such. Also stress is a factor...

  • I have been hearing about a lot of people lately getting pregnant after having their tubes tied cut and burned!

  • I wouldn't freak out yet, but yea you can get pregnant after having a tubal ligation. It's just not that common though. If you're really concerned take a test. But I'm sure you're body is just adjusting after giving birth!

  • I wouldn't start freaking out yet but yes you can. A friend of mine had that happen to her
