It's time for a thorough annual check up. What is your BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol and all that?

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.The chances of pregnancy are very low with tubal ligation. This may be because of some medical condition related to essential organ systems. Consult with your doctor for better results.
Take care
