Couldn't find what you looking for?


I am a widow 53 years old. I had tubal ligation for the past 17 years.I am still having my menstrual cycle at age 53. My breast have milk still. I am getting married with a man 39 years old. Can I get pregnant ? I am still active in sex.


Hi Guest,

Yes you can likely still get pregnant but you may need to have in-vitro fertilization.  The tubal ligation severed the passage for eggs to reach your vagina and to be fertilized.  Sometimes they do heal but usually there is a lot of scar tissue that results in an ectopic pregnancy.

During in-vitro, your egg would be harvested, fertilized with your husbands sperm, and then implanted.  

See a fertility specialist.

Good luck and congratulations.
