Hi Anonymous,
Did you have a tubal ligation ( were your tubes tied)? Or did you have a hysterectomy( was your uterus removed)?
There is a 1 in 200 to 300 chance of a tubal ligation failing and a woman getting pregnant. Hysterectomy is the only procedure that guarantees sterility. If you only had your tubes tied, you should still be having a monthly period. When was your last period? You could take a home pregnancy test if you are late by at least one week.
Hope this is helpful.
