  • I saw an episode of "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" where a woman didn't think she was pregnant because she had had her tubes tied so I guess it's possible.

  • It is always a possibility. Take a pregnancy test.

  • There's very good chance no, but miracles do happen!

  • No birth control is 100%, and tubal is birth control. I've had a tubal, too, and if you get pregnant, your chances of ectopic pregnancy are higher. So if you think it's possible, you should take a test and see. If it's positive, get in contact with your OB and see where to go from there.

  • I had a pregnancy scare recently. I had all of the above symptoms...but it must have been just a virus. Sore breasts, no energy, and morning sickness.

  • Yes it is possible but many implant in the tubes and not the uterus. If the tube ruptures it is very painful and a lot of blood loss can accure. Take a test and see, if you are go to your OB ASAP like previous poster stated..

    Are you expecting a period soon, or did you just have one?

  • As SpaceToast mentioned a pregnancy after a tubal is very possibly ectopic - that's not to say it couldn't be a normal pregnancy, but that's less likely - not impossible, but less likely. I'd take a home test and if it's positive, schedule with the doc ASAP.

  • Yep. It's rare but not unheard of.

    My mom has concieved TWICE since she had her tubes tied over 15 years ago. One was a twin pregnancy and one was a singleton. Both of them ended in miscarriage but they doctor's don't believe it was related to the previous tubal ligation.

    You do however have a HIGH risk of tubal pregnancies.
