Patient discussion about ligate

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

A. i 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.
