There have been reports of pregnancy after tubal sterilization, which means the sterilization was not a complete success; the failure rate is about 1%.

If you think you may be pregnant, it is best to call your OB/GYN, as many of these pregnancies are ectopic (and can be dangerous), and most likely would not result in a viable pregnancy.

May I ask why you had this procedure done?

If you are still wanting to have children, have you looked into other options?

Basically i thought that me and my husband wouldn't want anymore childeren but i was wrong! he is okay with our two daughters but i want just one more. Now i look back and wish that i didn't go through with the procedure but such is life=( what worries me is i'm 2 months late and i have some lower back pain that shoots through down to my thighs and i've never had cramping during, before or after my cycle i have an appointment next week i hope its nothing serious! Thanx=)

Did you ever find out if you were pregnant? I have had a partial salpingectomy on June 25, 2007 and am havin spotting after bein 3 days late... I havent been late since I had my ectopic pregnancy in 2007. My husband and I have been tryin to concieve but have been told to do invitro... Just wonderin if we have a chance to conceive on our own.
