Hello! My name is***** and I will take the time to answer your question =)

Are you asking because you want to get pregnant or you are worried you are pregnant after this occurred?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
wondering if pregnancy has occured
Expert:  Dr. Zach replied 7 years ago.

Long story short, yes it is possible.... in some women, ESPECIALLY if tubes were burned (common many years ago), occasionally a fistula can form (a new tract) between the ovary and the normal tube, bypassing the area that was burned. This is not very common, but I have seen it a few times, typically MANY years after the orginal tubal.... so yes, it is possible to get pregnant after a tubal (rare but possible)
