  • My doctor said he has seen one intrauterine pregnancy after a tubal. And it was the old way they do the surgery.

  • Uggggh, yes, it is possible, did your surgeon not tell you in your pre-surgery stuff that it is not 100%?! A tubal is about as effective as condoms - 97.something % or whatever. So yeah, there's a chance of getting pregnant after a tubal. Bad thing is though, your chance of ectopic pregnancy skyrockets. So if you think you may be pregnant, take a test and find out, and if you start feeling any pain in your lower abdomen (ovary areas) get to the doctor immediately!
