I had a tubal ligation 12 years ago, I’m 44

Patient: I had a tubal ligation 12 years ago, I’m 44 years old and my last period was March 15. I am normally extremely regular..Could I be pregnant ?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Though you have had a tubal ligation earlier, since you have missed the cycles for o ver 2 months, we have to first rule out pregnancy.The chance of failure of tubal ligation always exists and can be upto 1 percent.Kindly consult a gynecologist for an examination and pregnancy test.Hope this helped.Regards
