Tubal sterilization is a widely used permanent contraceptive method for women who had completed their desired childbearing. If a pregnancy occurs after tubal sterilization, it is expected to be ectopic in most of the cases. However encountering an intrauterine pregnancy after Pomeroy tubal sterilization is extremely rare. A second time intrauterine pregnancy occured in a 34-year-old woman who had undergone tubal sterilization by Pomeroy technique in her last caesarean section. We are pointing out the failure risk of tubal sterilization with its possible mechanisms which might result in a viable intrauterine pregnancy.
