Has anyone gotten pregnant after having their tubes tied?

Has anyone ever experienced becoming pregnant after having their tubes tied? I’m 37 years old & had my tubes tied 17 years ago when my youngest child was born, but am almost 2 weeks late for my period & have now taken 4 tests which all said positive. I’ve had all of the pregnancy symptoms & haven’t had any problems, I’m just in absolute shock! I have an appointment tomorrow, but I’m having a hard time sleeping the last few nights. I’ve read a lot about it, but I am just wondering if anyone has had any personal experiences with pregnancy after tubal ligation, or if you know anyone who has?

I know someone that got pregnant after a tubal ligation. She got hers clamped and one of the clamps came off and turns out she was hella fertile :joy:

The risk is higher as time goes on. I know someone it happened to and she was pregnant at 43. She was devastated.

I personally haven’t but I know some who have. You should call your doctor

I was twice!! Tunes tide and on birth control and pregnant two times both miscarriage but yes it does happen

I have heard the failure rate is higher when you have them done just after giving birth but I do know 2 people who have had babies post tubal ligation

I know one that was pregnant at 45

If your tubes were only tied then yes it can happen

I know 2 people who got pregnant after tubes tied. . The only reason that causes a fake positive result is other underlying health issues. Go to the doctor.

High chance of it being ectopic pregnancy and needing to be removed.

You guys are freaking me outtt!
