Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Tubal ligation is one of the most effective forms of birth control but there is a very small risk of failure.

The chance of pregnancy after a tubal ligation is 1.43% which is a smaller risk than what is seen with some of the other forms of contraception.

Your investigations would show if you are pregnant.

I hope this helps
