Could I be pregnant post sterilization?

Patient

Q: Could i be pregnant after being sterilised 8 months ago

Symptoms:  Missed period
Doctor

A:   Thank you for your query.

You have not mentioned the type of sterilization you have undergone. Pregnancy post tubectomy of tubal ligation is very rare but totally cannot be ruled out. Tubectomy failures do occur, say about l in 100 tubectomies can fail, leading to a pregnancy. This largely depends on the method of tubectomy done.

Hope that answers your query.

Have a good day.
