I believe that pre-surgical pregnancy testing is fairly standard for all women of reproductive age. I had recently entered menopause, at the time of my surgery, and was still given a pregnancy test just as a precaution. After all, whether a woman is lesbian or straight, pregnancy is still possible.

I went in to have my tubes tied after my second child...what a surprise to deliver a baby about 34 weeks later. Turns out I was 6 weeks along when I had my tubes tied so my then OB doc started doing pregnancy tests on EVERYONE!

My DD2 is getting married this December and I cannot imagine my life without her.
