Has anyone ever known someone who had their tubes, not only tied, but burned and later got pregnant?

I have read a number of articles that give varying statistics... thought I would ask for some real world examples.... If so, how many years after their tubal ligation did they get pregnant?

What can I do next?

I've heard of it but I've never heard of the pregnancy lasting. Most pregnancy after your tubes are tied turn out to be ectopic and require surgical removal.

I got a tubal back in 2001 after my 4th child was born. The Doctor did tell me that they are never guaranteed, the first 7 years are the most crucial. I could become pregnant but most likely in the the tubes and would have to have it removed. So far I have been blessed with this not happening. :) I hope this helps.
