  • When they tied them do you know if they cut them and then tied them or if they just but a knot in them? Because if they just knotted them there is a possibility that something squeezed through.

  • I am not really good at wording things so plz excuse me for that. Im really hoping this is not all in my head or that there could really be some thing wrong with me.

  • you should call your ob clinic and speak with a nurse because they will give u a more definite answer than people like me that have no experience .... but i have heard that iof they are tied then is possible to get pregnant but if your tubes were "burnt" then you couldnt get pregnant anymore !

    or u can also wait few more days and take another pregnancy test :)

  • I actually know a couple people that got pregnant around 7 years after they had their tubes tied...Like PP said, call the clinic and ask a nurse.

  • Take a test...the longer your tubes have been tied, the greater chance there is of an unexpected pregnancy.

  • I have heard about women who had their tubes tied for so long time and ends up getting pregnant. Just wait a week or two more, and see if your period comes, if not then take few test more.

  • When tubes are tied during a c-section delivery, the doctor sometimes ties a ligament instead of the tube as there is one that's in the same area and looks like a tube. How old are you? You could be experiencing menopause - even if you're in your late 30's. See if there is a free clinic in your area. They should be able to rule out pregnancy at least.
