I had a scare recently and thought I was pregnant even though it has been 5 years since I had the tl done.  Turns out there is a failure rate but my issue was something else and not a pregnancy.  HAs anyone else actually gotten pregnant after the tubal ligation?  I heard that the failure rate increases after 10 years! I am worried about that because the Pill allowed my 5 year old to exist. If a tubal isn't 100% I will be one of the ones to conceive.  And never let dh touch me again!

My sis had a tubal done nearly 3 years ago. Found out a year ago that she was pregnant. It was tubal pregnancy so it had to be terminated. Then again 3 months later. ( You would have thought she would have learned) Also another tubal pregnancy that was terminated.

My cousin went in for pre-op to have her tubes tied.  Of course they did a preganancy test...which was negative.  AFTER they tied her tubes, they did another pregnancy test (this was like 2 weeks later), it was positive and she had a healthy baby boy. lol

My tubal is five years old....I have an 18 month old.  We did IVF (in-vitro fert) to have her and will do so one more time.  Hopefully, after ten years it will continue to work for me, as I will be done having children...lol!
