Is natural pregnancy possible with a tubal ligation?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 08/09/2018

Yes. Although this method of contraception is highly effective, there is a 1% chance that recanalization will occur and that the tubes will be rejoined. This chance increases over the years, and there is also an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy with tubal ligation.

For more information on this pregnancy complication, we recommend reading the following article: ectopic pregnancy.
