  • Yes clamps & rings are reversable so they can break, I had a tubal with rings when I delivered my 3rd child in june 2005 and this year I got pregnant but didn't know until my fiance got a swift kick in the head (entering 3rd trimester), I took atleast 20 tests throughout the year including digital & blood yet all but 2 were negative, the 2 positives were very very light & I have been bleeding every month, I'm due dec. 5th.

  • Yes, it's not only possible but happens rather often. If you are worried take a test or see your doctor!

  • I know a few people that have gotten pregnant after having a tubal and it poses a huge risk for a tubal pregnancy.

  • Thats my concern...because the procedure i had done has one of the highest failure rate especially in younger women in my age group...i had the clamps procedure!!!! If I am I dont want to have to abort r have surgery r anything like that...i kind of regret having my tubes done because i wouldn't mind having another baby...but i know these symptoms are not me imagining things....its a roller coaster of emotions of me not knowing....i been having dreams about me being pregnant its like really weird!!! i had dreams before i found out i was pregnant with my other kids also kind of!!!
