Can pregnancy occur by mistake after sterilisation?
I have bee sterilised for about 6 years, since 1999, and have been normally sexually active since I already have 2 children. Is it possible to fall pregnany whilst being sterilised for so long?

It is possible. There is a small failure rate with sterilisation, about 3/1000.
