Dear Anon_8448,

According to WebMD's information about Tubal Ligation ,"Tubal ligation and tubal implants are not 100% effective at preventing pregnancy. "01CThere is a slight risk of becoming pregnant after tubal ligation. This happens to about 5 per 1,000 women after 1 year. After a total of 10 years following tubal ligation, about 18 per 1,000 women will have become pregnant."

Because of the increased risk of complications, you should definitely get checked out by your doctor if you are, or think you are pregnant.

Yours in health,
