 Has anyone heard of some one getting pregnant 1 year after getting their tubes tied? I had my tubes tied last  year in nov. And I haven't started yet this month.

A mother of a child at my sons school had that happen to her. It is possible but im not sure how often things like that happen or if its just 1 in a million.

My cousin had her tubes tied 7 years ago and she now has a 1 1/2 year old. It happens but from what her Dr told her not very often.

You most certainly can get pregnant with your tubes tied!!!

I have had 3 confirmed pregnancies after having my tubes tied.

The first was almost 10 yrs to the day of having my tubes tied.

I carried to 4-1/2 months

The second was almost, 1 yr to the day after that... I was 22 weeks & was carrying twins!

3 yrs later...here we went again!

I had miscarriages due to both the pregnancies being regarded as high risk pregnancies &, I was on some strong medications for tumors. (brain) (I did not know that I was pregnant until too late to stop the meds & take better care of the babies to be)

I regret that I hadn't done better, but also the Dr. not treating me or the pregnancies as an important part of my life!!!

I was told that when you have your "tubes tied', that you should have them checked (dyes ran through them) about every 7 yrs.

They can grow back...especially if you had to have any type of surgery in that area. (which I had)

Congratulations on your baby to be!

I was shocked when I found out I was pregnant after "10 yrs" of having my "tubes tied", but then my family & I, had become very excited, & was looking forward to the new arrival.

I guess my question would be how are they doing your Tubal? Are they cutting your Tubes or just putting something around the tubes so that nothing can get in? Monday I'm having a Tubal and they are Cutting. I was in for my Pre-Op and she said that there WAS a doctor that was just putting something around the tube to cut flow and 2 of his ladies got Pregnant so he is now Cutting them. She said that they have never had a lady come in that had a tubal done by totally cutting the tubes apart.

When I asked the nurse how they do a tubal and she had that they will cut them, burn them and then will Tie them.

A friend fo mine got pg after having a tubal, it was ectopic and she was lucky she ended up being ok- she ended up rushed to the ER b/c  her tube ruptured. I've heard its most common to have a tubal pregnancy if you get pg after getting them tied. Don't really know, though/

About 1 out of every 350 tubal ligations "fail", resulting in pregnancy. Of those, 60% are an ectopic pregnancy, which is life-threatening if not treated. Thats what I just found that on the internet. The symptoms I 've been having is mild headaches, fatigue, relieving myslef quite often. And cravings for sweet things, i only want sweet things  when I was pregnant with my girls. On top of that no period yet. I feel like i'm pregnant. My asthma has been acting up, Shortness of breath and also dizziness? Any clues anyone?
