Hello and welcome,

I understand that you are extremely concerned regarding pregnancy. However irrespective of menopause, pregnancy is extremely rare after tubal ligation. In less than 0.5%. In the perimenopausal period, the chance of pregnancy even without tubal ligation is almost zero. So do not worry.

Spontaneous pregnancy is very very rare at your age with the above history.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
