  • My mother did with me. But that was a long time ago. 33 years to be exact.

  • Yes. And she was not too thrilled about it. As a result of the tubal she had an ectopic pregnancy and had to abort the fetus. She and her husband made the choice for no more children, took the steps to ensure it didn't happen, and it did. What really got her was the same place that did the tubal charged her for the abortion because of their failed procedure.

  • Um hold up. I have had a tubal. YOU SIGN PAPERS saying you understand there is a possibility of pregnancy and risk that it is a tubal. It's not because they did the procedure wrong. And removing a tubal pregnancy is not an abortion. Why are they responsible to cover the risks for free? Thats rediculous. If that's the case when you sign off on breast implant surgery you should get them to pay for them to be removed when they leak.
    My doctor told me he has seen one pregnancy in 13 years.

  • I'm not trying to start a debate. I just am curious if it's possible.

  • Well, we told you, yes it's possible. Can't control what people post. Know one is debating. Just clearing something up.

  • I had a couple that I had to tell they were pregnant, where she'd had a tubal and he'd had a vasectomy! Biology finds a way! Did you know that an IUD actually has a higher effectiveness rate than a tubal ligation?

  • Yes she had gotten a tubal and about a year later she had another child.
