Thanks for writing to us.
There is very less chance of failure of tubal ligation. The symptoms that you are having can be related to pregnancy or a weight gain. To confirm this, you can get your ultrasound scan of abdomen done.

I am 50 years old . My name is Tammy I have had a tubal ligation after my 6th child almost 14 years ago. I have been experiencing some pregnancy, as well as change of life symptoms lately and wanted to see if it was possible to be pregnant after having this procedure 14 years ago. I see you will need a payment with a credit card o answer my question and at this time I do not have that to give to you so I guess I will try a different avenue to find out the answer. Thank you

I got my tubes burned almost 6 years ago , I was 22 at the time, since then my periods have been like clockwork & extremely heavy. My last normal period ended on 9/10/16 & I had light spotting in 10/5/16 that lasted a couple hours but no period. The last 2 or 3 weeks I have had frequent urination, bloating, heartburn, loose stools, cramping & have been really tired. Is it possible my tubes grew back together & I m pregnant or am I experiencing these symptoms because something else might be going on?
