Getting preg after getting tubes tied?

I keep hearing all these things from family and DH about healing after a tubal and getting an unexpected baby in a couple years. I am just curious to see how many ppl on this board have actually experienced this...or know someone personally.

Re: Getting preg after getting tubes tied?

I voted yes, but not for the reasons you are thinking.....

I became pregnant after having my tubes burned, but my story is very different than most would expect. I knew it would require IVF to achieve pregnancy & that my tubes had pockets of fluid. If the fluid leaked it could cause a MC & my RE would only take me on as a IVF patient if I agreed to the tubal. So, I had my tubes destroyed to become pregnant.

Yes, my aunt who happens to be more like a sister cuz she's only 10 tens older than me did. She had a tubal about 3 years ago, and two months ago she had another baby. Yes it was a huge shock. I was the one who gave her the pg test.

Re: Getting preg after getting tubes tied?

I know a couple who had 2 grown sons (one had just gotten married) when they found out they were expecting again (after a her tubal years before that) It was rather stressful since the mother was mid 40's and not the healthiest; their youngest son has autism and they had a really hard time chasing after him. He's a teenager now, but the father recently passed away from cancer

Re: Getting preg after getting tubes tied?

I know quite a few with tied tubes including my mother. None of had that happen. I guess I could add 'yet' since anything is possible. I hear the 8 years later after vasectomy babies stories and get freaked out.

Re: Getting preg after getting tubes tied?

My doctor told me they test the tubes to make sure it was a full section that was removed. She also said that it's very rare for it to fail, usually it's because the egg jumps the gap and not because the tubes reconnected. She also said I'm at a slightly higher risk for failure because I'm young.

this has nothing to do with this thread but do make sure that your doc removes part of the tube not just clamps it--this goes for vasectomies as well. our urologist has done 5,000 vasectomies and he said that after reviewing the stats of his first 1,000 that he decided to do the removal of a section then stitch with silk method and his stats got waaaay better instantly.

hey, our bodies like to reproduce--it's what we are born to do.

I actually asked to see mine, because I was curious. They are much thicker than you'd think!
