Hello
Thanks for your query
Chances of her being pregnant at 47 , after a tubectomy are very remote.
However, rarely pregnancy does occur after tubectomy, although the chances are less than 1%.
Also, at 47 , most probably she would be experiencing peri menopausal changes, and hence she could be missing her periods.
If she has regular cycles, then please take a urine pregnancy test to confirm.
If cycles have been irregular, please consult a Gynecologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Take care, and feel free to discuss further.
