Hello anon I had a friend who had a tubal and after 9 years she became pregnant she didn't have a ectopic but instead a beautiful baby girl some women have ectopics and you have to be very careful if you are pregnant in your tubes you will start to not feel very well have alot of pain make sure if you start to feel bad you go to the hospital quick and I hope that if you are expecting you have a healthy baby,I'm Aldo going threw that same problem its almost 9 years and I'm always on time and now I missed my period for march and I'm crossing my fingers for April I never missed my period so I'm praying everything will be alright with me also good luck and god bless

Hi Anon and thanks for your question.

When a woman has a tubal ligation, the fallopian tubes are cut or blocked to permanently prevent pregnancy. A tubal ligation disrupts the movement of the egg to the uterus for fertilization and blocks sperm from traveling up the fallopian tubes to the egg. 

Women who have had a tubal ligation can develop an ectopic pregnancy. This is a fertilized egg that has planted itself outside the uterus.

This type of pregnancy can be very dangerous for the mother and unborn child. When the fetus starts to develop in organs other than the uterus, the organ is stretched until it bursts, which causes severe bleeding. Normally, with ectopic pregnancies live birth does not occur.

Symptoms include the following:

Abdominal pain
Absence of menstrual pain
Vaginal bleeding or intermittent bleeding (spotting)
Breast tenderness
Frequent urination
Dizziness or fainting (caused by blood loss)
Low blood pressure (cause by blood loss)
Lower back pain

If you think you may be pregnant it would be best to see your healthcare provider as soon as possible.

Hope this helps,
