Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Chances of pregnancy are possible even if the fallopian tubes are clamped due to spontaneous recanalization, falling off of the ligatures/clamps etc. A HSG (hysterosalpingogram) test done by your gynecologist can help to check the patency of tubes. If you want to opt for pregnancy, you can consider going ahead with discussing your pregnancy plans with your gynecologist/obstetrician and getting further evaluation done along with a HSG (hysterosalpingogram) test to check for the patency of the fallopian tubes. If the test shows patency of tubes, (along with normal functioning of ovaries), you can go ahead with your pregnancy plans. If tubes are blocked, and non-patent (as shown by the HSG test result), then you will have to undergo surgery for tubal reversal to make them patent and then try for pregnancy. If you do not intend to go ahead with surgery, or if the surgery cannot be done, you can opt for options like IVF.
If you already suspect chances of pregnancy, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy and consider visiting your gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
