I have had 5 successful births. I had my tubes cut, tied and burnt in January 1996. Is it possible for me to be pregnant?

With tied oviducts, the chances for getting pregnant in a natural way are very small. You can take a home pregnancy test to check it out, for now. The symptoms that you’ve mentioned (craving certain foods, morning sickness, tired a lot, dizziness, and swelling) are not secure signs of pregnancy. If you'd like more information, you can speak with your gynecologist or family doctor.
