How Can I Get Pregnant With My Tubes Tied

How Can I Get Pregnant With My Tubes Tied

How can I get pregnant with my tubes tied?

Unless you’re having a virgin birth or going the high tech route with in vitro fertilization, it usually happens the normal way.

What’s that?
The same way 99.999% of all other babies are conceived. Do I need to explain how that happens?

No, but I had my tubes tied so that I couldn’t get pregnant. If you still have ovaries and a uterus, you can get pregnant. The tubal ligation is supposed to prevent it by making sure there was no connection between the two.

Doctors advertised that the failure rate was two in a thousand. More recent data analysis reveals that the failure rate is about two percent, because the body tries to heal. That’s as effective as the birth control pill. No, because so much more can go wrong with the birth control pill. Whether you have a stomach bug or take antibiotics that neutralize it, the failure rate for the pill is closer to five percent. An IUD would be a better solution, then. Or a hysterectomy. That’s 100% effective, unless you somehow have two of them.

Or having him get a vasectomy. Any kid born after double parent sterilization is going to cure cancer, conquer the world or invent warp drive. There are risks if you get pregnant after tubal ligation. Yeah, you’ve already given away all the baby stuff. I meant a tubal pregnancy. That’s called an ectopic pregnancy. The treatment for that is usually surgery. If that happens, you might as well have the ovaries taken out.

I don’t want to go into early menopause. Fertility aside, I don’t want the risk of
heart attack and osteoporosis to start early. But an unplanned pregnancy would give you early gray hairs anyway.
