A:   It is possible to become pregnant after having your tubes tied, however, it is very, very unlikely! The chances of pregnancy are extremely low. Nonetheless, you should have a pregnancy test done since you have not seen your menses in over 4 months. If the pregnancy test is negative, then your doctor will investigate for other causes of lack of a period (secondary amenorrhea). The most common cause is a hormonal imbalance.After you present symptoms have been treated, should you still desire another child, there are procedures that can be attempted to untie the tubes. Unfortunately, these procedures do have a very high failure rate.
