If you had a tubal ligation but a home pregnancy test comes back positive could you be pregnant?

  • You are probably not pregnant as a blood test is much more accurate than a urine test. It is unusual though that the urine pregnancy test showed a positive because usually if results are wrong it is usually false negatives as the pregnancy hormone wasn't detected yet. If I were you, I would take another urine test to be sure, maybe the one you took was defective. All in all, I bet you are not pregnant. Hope you get the results you are looking for.
  • The HPT's that are made these days will not show a positive test if you do not have HCG hormone in your body. Only pregnany ,some hormone supplements, and some medications can affect the test reading and provide a positive response. If you are not taking medicine, are not on hormone replacement therapy, then the test has percieved the pregnancy hormone HcG-you are pregnant or were pregnant.
  • I called my obsterician after I received a positive result from a home pregnancy test, and my doctor told me that the home pregnancy tests that are out there are in fact pretty accurate, and that if the test was positive then the hcg hormone was detected no matter how faint the line was, and that I should assume that I was pregnant. I had my tubes tied on Febuary 2,2005. My doctors have said that sometimes the fertilized egg can seep through the fallopian tubes even though they have been tied. I guess it goes to show that no birth control is full proof. I have 4 girls and I guess that we're getting ready to have number 5.

YOU CANT!!!! once you get em tied that's ITANS2:You can get pregnant by artificial implantation (test tube baby) if your uterus is still functional. So far as tubal ligation goes for avoiding pregnancy, it isn't perfect. This quote comes from the attached link.The failure rate for tubal ligation is slightly higher at about 2 percent which translates into a risk of pregnancy occurring following tubal ligation of about 1 pregnancy in 1000 women who've undergone this procedure.

Not necessarily. The hormones that make a pregnancy test read positive stay in your body for a little while after a miscarriage.
