Question: pregnant after tubal?

 jennae - Mon Mar 10, 2008 1:04 pm

I am a 28 year old woman with 2 children. I had a section of my tubes removed after the birth of my daughter 4 years ago. I am feeling fatigued, have sore breast, nausea vomiting, constipation, i have been moody, my body has felt like it was on fire to the touch i seem to have to go the the restroom every hour or two, just smelling my husband cooking dinner makes me want to vomit. i have lower back pain and bloating and cramping. i cant stay awake for more than 6 or 8 hours at a time without feeling dizzy and like i am about to pass out. I know alot of these are symptons i felt with both pregnancys and i was wondering if i could be pregnant again or if there could be some other cause. My period was on time at the end of feb. but after it was over, i was done for a day then i started again for 3 more days...

It is possible to become pregnant after tubal ligation, and there is increased risk of ectopic pregnancy following tubal ligation. The symptoms you describe could be related to pregnancy or to a variety of other things, but it sounds like the symptoms are really troubling you. I suggest you seek out a provider to examine you and help pinpoint a cause of your symptoms. Good luck to you.
