Q. if you think you are pregnant and you have had a tubal ligation what should i do? should i wait to be sure?

A1i agree with doctoradhi, first of all get checked. the pregnancy tests are cheap and you can get them anywhere.
A tubal ligation is approximately 99% effective in the first year following the procedure. In the following years the effectiveness may be reduced slightly since the fallopian tubes can, in some cases, reform or reconnect which can cause unwanted pregnancy. so it can happen.
A2First, you should check (using pregnancy pack test) the pregnancy, is it real positive or false positive. The decision for tubal ligation or having your tubes tied should be considered a permanent decision. Still, it is possible to conceive after this procedure.

If you're positively pregnant, then I suggest you to go see your OB-GYN doctor for further consult and medical care regarding this problem. But averagely you can just continue the pregnancy.
