pregnancy after tubal ligation 15 years later

I had a tubal ligation 15 years ago. I have always been a 28 day cycle, yet I was due to get my period on October 13, but have yet to get it. I did take a pregnancy test and it was negative; however, I am really worried that I could be pregnant. I take the generic medicine to prozac on a daily basis, but I am scared to take it anymore for fear that it would hurt the baby if I were pregnant. What should I do?
I am 42, my oldest is 22, then my stepdaughter is 19, my other biological daughters are 18 and 15. I am really scared. Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks!

Its very unlikely you are pregnant.  As we age, we may skip a period here and there.  If you are worried, you should see your doctor.

Possible, but extremely unlikely.
