I had me tubes tied after my last bay. That was a little over 3years ago. Now I am 28 days late and have had both + and - tests. I did make a Dr. Appointment but I am afriad of looking foolish If it turns out that I am not pregant. I would like to hear what others think about this. Just want so advice.

  • I've not had my tubes tied. SO was the negative pregnancy test the first one you took and after that, you've had a positive? I'd go with the positive. As many negative tests as I've had, the ONLY positives I have had were right on.

  • either way dont be afraid of looking foolish drs do this every day. and i had a nurse who had her tubes tied and had two kids after that without getting a reversal. so just let your dr tell you if you want to wait for that. they may do a blood test which is more accurate.

  • My cousin's wife had an ectopic pregnancy a couple of years after having her tubes done. And I know someone else who got pregnant with triplets just months after her surgery. So yeah, anything's possible.

    If you start having pain on one side of the other, get to the ER just to be on the safe side.

  • I have a friend that had her tubes tied and still got pregnant. It is rare, but not unheard of. I would see my doctor. I do not think you would look foolish at all.
