Hmm
Uhh, I heard that getting a tubal done.. Cannot be reversed for women but most like its rare.. But maybe you should go to the doctor and check up on yourself.

A tubal can most certainly be reversed...Its expensive and not guarenteed. But yes you can still get pregnant after a tubal...The spot where they cut can grow back together. Its very very unlikely.

I had a tubal done after I had my last daughter which was almost 3 years ago. Back in march I had an abnormal period but thought nothing of it. A week later I had naseau and very lightheaded. Thinking I only had the stomach flu I went about my day. After passing out twice my husband called the ambulance. Not only was I so light headed I was also having sharp pains mainly on my one side. Make a long story short .. I was pregnant. It was a eptopic pregnancy and they had to remove it. So yes, you can get pregnant after getting a tubal.

Tubals can be reversed if they are performed in a way that can be reversed. (if that made any sense at all)
but as for getting pregnant after having a tubal, yes, it can happen. It doesn't happen that often, but it can happen.
I know a woman who's boyfriend had a vysectomy and she was on the pill and they got pregnant. The chances of that are also very, very slim, but not impossible! Good luck!

Possible?
I had a tubal 3 years ago and just noticed a couple of days ago that my period is running very, very late which is not normal, I've become very nauseated and even the sight and smell of certain foods that I normally love have been turning my stomach. I'm also extremely tired and a bit cranky. Of course, I've made an appointment with the doctor so I'll have to see what the results are but after some light pink spotting for about a half an hour yesterday, it sure sounds like the symptoms I had when I was pregnant with my other four children. So...Possible?...Who knows?
