Can I still get pregnant if I had my tubes tied?

  1. Yes! Nothing except abstinence is 100%. You can see more about contraceptive failure rates here: https://www.cdc.gov/reproductivehealth/contraception/unintendedpregnancy/pdf/contraceptive_methods_508.pdf

    1. So male vasectomies are much more effective than women having tubes tied… Am I reading that right?

      1. Yes, you are! Vasectomy is a popular and very effective method of contraception.

      2. The difference in failure rate is pretty small – 0.015 vs 0.5% – but Dr. Sara is right that vasectomies are great for birth control! They are a quick office procedure and cost less, take less time, and have less risks associated with them than a woman getting her tubes tied. They are a very smart choice!
