Hi Anon

There is a tiny risk of pregnancy when a woman's tubes are tied and this risk is raised slightly as the years go on.  However, getting pregnant after having one's tubes tight is rare. 

How old are you? Periods can get less regular, especially when over 40. 

How late are you? If more than a few days take a pregnancy test so you can rule that out.
