Brian is a little worried about me getting pregnant again (so am I a little) and I was wondering if it is possible to get pregnant after a tubal. I have heard of this happening to some women and was just wondering how common it is. TIA,

I have heard of it. My mom's friend was in her 40's and had it happen to her. She had had it done about 12 years prior and still ended up pregnant.

I don't know how common it is. If you have it done, make sure the doctor clips out a piece of the tube, so no matter what happens, they can't meet up again. That's what my doctor did, in addition to clamping and cauterizing.

But, you hear less about failed tubals than you do failed vasectomies. I'm not just saying that because of my situation, but there really is a higher failure rate for vasectomies then tubals nowadays.

This happened to a friend of mine. Her tubes were tied, not cauterized, and she got pg, so her dh got a vasectomy...and I guess they did it too early, without going back for a sperm recheck, and she got pg again. LOL.

I think it can happen. But the chances are rare. Well some bunch of years back. A woman I worked with said she had her tubes tied. So she assumed she could not get pregnant. Well some how she got pregnant. The pregnancy was in the tube. Of course she had to have surgery and all that.

I have heard if it happening, but it is usually when they are just tied and not "fried" and cut. You should be fine!! When Brandon gets the big snip, I am going to make sure that they cut out a good sized piece and cotarize the ends!!

As previous posters said it depends on the type of tual--now a days they don't take chances . . I wouldn't worry.
