It seems likely that you can get pregnant if your tubes are tied and burnt...but the chances for becoming pregnant in natural way are less than 0.2%. Even in such rare cases, the pregnancy is usually extrauterine (outside of the uterus). But if you use an assisted reproductive technique such as “in vitro” fertilization, the chances for a pregnancy are are increased and are the same as other women.
