Yes. Not likely, but possible. BUT, women who do become pregnant after tubal ligation are at increased risk of ectopic pregnancy. If you believe you are pregnant and have had a tubal ligation get to a doctor asap.
don't know what the name of my procedure was but i was sterilized at the same time as giving birth (caesarian section). i know at the time the midwife was very confident that i couldn't possibly get pregnant again but now i'm starting to wonder!!!
I'm probably over-reacting. It's just little things that make you wonder isn't it? I had fertility treatment before my first daughter as i wasn't ovulating. Once I had her, I got pregnant literally 3 months after her and did the same again the following year!( 3 BIRTHDAYS IN ONE WEEK IN MAY!).My periods have been absolutely "dead on" since I've been sterilised, until now....! Probably a false alarm though!
I got pregnant after being sterlised, albeit a long time ago. Appsrently the risks aare higher is you have just had a baby, DD was 16 months old and DS was 4 months old, when I had it done. I fell pregnant after 12 weeks.
I have been sterlised twice now. It ius funny seeing my kidney x rays as I have 2 clips one side and 3 the other! (Plus the Mirena coil) It amused the junior nurses in A & E the other day as they'd never seen them before on an x ray!
