Can you become pregnant if both your tubes were cut?

Hi, Anon, and thank you for your question.

The answer to your question is yes. It's rare, but it absolutely happens.

The statistics are that 1 in 200 women who have had their tubes tied become pregnant again. Most pregnancies that occur (70%) in women who have had their tubes tied are ectopic, and can be dangerous if not detected early enough and seen by a doctor.

Are you having pregnancy symptoms? And you had a tubal ligation? Or is this question for someone you're close to?
