I re-read your message and got it right this time. You will have to see a doctor who specializes in tubal reversals and whether or not it can be reversed depends on how they were "tied" to begin with. You will need your medical records from the doc who did it in the first place. You will still be at a higher than average risk of an ectopic pregnancy and will need to be followed closely. This may not be covered by insurance since it is considered totally elective. Good luck.
: The early signs of pregnancy would be the same - late period, nausea, breast tenderness - whatever you had before. IF you are pregnant after a tubal you have an increased risk of ectopic (outside the uterus) implantation, and an ectopic pregnancy is generally not viable - the fetus will not survive.
: If you are really worried, take an at home pregnancy test. If it's positive, call your doc so you can be evaluated for an ectopic as soon as possible.
: : I HAVE TWO KIDS. NOW I AM MARRIED AND MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH WANTS A BABY, BUT MY TUBES ARE TIED. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT YOU COULD GET PREGNANT. MY TUBES HAS BEEN TIED FOR 8 IN A HALF YEARS MY BABY WILL BE 9 IN JAN. IF YOU CAN THEN WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR. FOR AS SIGNS OF BEING PREGNANT. COULD YOU LOSE YOUR BABY IF YOU GET PREGNANT IN YOUR TUBES OR JUST GET PREGNANT WHILE YOUR TUBES OR TIED.
