    Pregnancy after a tubal

    Can you get pregnancy 10 yrs after a tubal?

    I had a tubal done in 2000 and have regretted it every day since. Im back with a man I dated 17 yrs ago and would love to have a child with him but I dont have the money to have a reversal or in-verto. Is there anything I can do to help my chances. I have read evening primrose oil can help.

    i am going through the same thing . only mine were tied in 2003, i am back with my ex boyfriend from 25 years ago , and i am having classic signs of pregnancy , but i had taken numerous pg tests and all came back negative , and went to get a blood test and it also , came back negative for HCG . i also , don't have enough money for the IFV or reversal . i don't know what else to do except to wait and see .. i hope all goes well for you and your man . so don't feel like you are the only one goin through this .. we both need help ... and where to get it is anyones guess .. Only God can decide whether we can get pregnant .. also , there is a increase for pregnancy after 10 years after getting your tubes tied ... hope this helps
