Signs of pregnancy after tubal ligation?
Signs of pregnancy after tubal ligation are a positive pregnancy
test. If your test is negative, you're not pregnant.
The more time that passes after a tubal ligation the (slightly) higher the risk of regeneration of the fallopian tube/s. It is extremely rare but it can happen. Because there is scar tissue from the tubal ligation, there is also an increase chance of a tubal pregnancy. If your period suddenly stops, whether you are having symptoms of pregnancy or not, take a pregnancy test or see your OB / GYN.
Pregnancy after tubal ligation is very rare. Tubal ligation has less than a 2% failure rate and even if you do get pregnant without reversal surgery you are more likely to have an ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is very dangerous and you should see a Dr immediately if you feel that you may be pregnant.
Yes, it is possible to get pregnant after a tubal ligation. In rare instances the tubal ligation does not work and you may get pregnant but the instance of ectopic rate is very high and a doctor should be consulted right away. IVF is also available for those who want to conceive after a tubal ligation. This can be very expensive and many cannot afford. Tubal ligation reversal surgery is also an option. As proven…
Yes. There is an 0.4% failure rate for tubal ligation resulting in pregnancy (1 in 250). Most of these are ectopic pregnancies and many are in the tubes. The tubal ligation success rate is 99% in the first year, but after that, there can be increased chances that the body will heal itself and rebuild or reconnect the tubes. See the comment in the discussion section for an anecdotal summary of one case.
If you have a tubal ligation done nine months ago and missed three periods and do not use protection with your partner is there a possibility of having a tubal pregnancy or regular pregnancy?
Even though tubal ligation is an extremely effective method of birth control with a less than 1% failure rate, there is still a chance of pregnancy with any birth control method. Missing 3 periods is definitely an indication for taking a pregnancy test. The chance of an ectopic pregnancy is much higher after a tubal ligation but carrying a normal pregnancy is still possible.
