Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Yes, there can be chances of getting pregnant 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 pregnancy is suspected, 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.
