Yes-the chances are slim, me being Murphy’s daughter I went for a partial hysterectomy (kept the ovaries) BEST decision EVER!! I had irregular periods and heavy bleeding - I’m done having kids so I didn’t want to deal with periods anymore. It also almost eliminates your chances of cervical and uterine cancers. Not to mention no Pap smears. Whoohoo!

Just in time for them to start smooching my boobs every year. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Mine were just clamped almost 19 years ago and still no more babies. Depending on the method, there could be a chance.

I’ve had my tubes tied for 10 years and no pregnancies. My dr put two clamps on each tube as extra protection.

My sister was pregnant 10 times before having a successful pregnancy. They tied her tubes but she got pregnant again and miscarried. They again tied and burned her tubes but she got pregnant again and was able to deliver a second child. The doctor then gave her a hysterectomy.
My step daughter also got pregnant after getting her tubes tied after 4 years. The same thing happened to my best friend after 14 years.
Mine worked though.

I got a tubal ligation back in 2013. My OB used clamps on the end. She did tell me there is a very slight chance that I could get pregnant again but it would be Tubal pregnancy. But I’m happy to say so far so good.

So I was told mine would be laparoscopically done and would be cut n burned and well they had to do a C-Section cut because of the thick scar tissue from when I had gallbladder surgery in 2012 I had my tubes done in 2014 and I ended up with filshy however I spell it clips ! Where the c scar is I have nerve damage . Never got pregnant after but I guess when they put the clips in it was for a option to take out and get pregnant again easier

Actually just got told my tubial was considered unsuccessful and that if I wish to prevent pregnancy consider my partner getting snipped or birth control so it is possible but not very often. My doctor said I’m her first failed in the 17 years she’s done them especially with the clips being put in during a csection.

What about if the tubes were cut ?
They showed the tubes to me as I wanted to see them but I am worried I’ll be pregnant again. I have five kids! I asked for imaging to be done to confirm there is no way but the doctor declined and said having them removed is good

Got pregnant really quickly after tubial.ihad a miscarriage and didn’t know i was pregnant. Then had another surgery. Dr said 1in 2000 get pregnant with tubial.the last surgery he said 1in a million. 34 years ago. No more babies

I believe it depends on how you get it done, if they just tie them then it can be reversed. But I had mine cut, burned and then tied. So there is no chance of me ever having that reversed.
