Pregnancy possible after tubal ligation and failed endometrial ablation?

I would like to know if anyone has an insight if a pregnancy is possible after a tubal ligation and a failed endometrial ablation? I had my tubes tied 7 years ago and an ablation 5 yrs ago. After an MRI it was determined that the ablation failed ( I still have a light to medium cycle every 3 wks). Is there anyway possible to have a Dr. check to see if I can still carry a pregnancy?

hi, I had a tubal ligation 8 years ago and I'm 10 days late and have always had normal periods. Is it possible I can still be pregnant?

While tubals are considered to be permanent sterilization, there are cases of them failing with resultant pregnancy. Best to take a pregnancy test and rule this out.
