Is pregnancy possible after tubal ligation?

I am a 30 year old mother of 2 who had her tubes tied last September after my second c-section. I am at least 3 days late. My period s are never late and I am on a 30 day cycle with my periods lasting 2 days. I have no sypmtoms realy to make me think I am pregnant other than no period and some headaches and fatigue. Is it possible to be pregnant after a tubal?

Hi,
Tubal ligation is almost always successful.Failure rate is low if done properly.If you miss your period for over 2 weeks then do a pregnancy test.

Hi. OK I had a tubal ligation after my second child was born. That was almost 6 years ago. They placed some sort of clamps on my tubes. My question is could I still get pregnant. I am having early signs of pregnancy. Sore/tender breasts, frequent urination, nausea, heartburn, lightheadedness, and fatigue. But it s still a little too early to do a home pregnancy test. So is it possible I m pregnant?

I'm 30 years old, I am in good health, I had a vasectomy a week ago. Since then my scrotum has been extremely relaxed, or in other words "saggy balls". They have yet to constrict, which has made recovery even more uncomfortable. Is this something to be cocerned about, is this normal?

Hi my husband recently had a vasectomy and he was tested 2 months later and tested negative for sperm. I have since stopped using birth control (marvelon ). I have missed a period and am hoping its just due to going off my pill and my body readjusting. Whats your opinion o this ?

I had a vasectomy when I was 24 years old. I am now 50. I am married to another woman now and we would like to have a child together. The Doctor that did my vasectomy told me it was the non reversable kind meaning he tied a knot and used stiches not a clamp. Can this vasectomy be reversed? Do I still make sperm? Can this sperm be extracted and artifically implanted in my wife?
