missed period but had tubal ligation
My last period ended the 28th of October.  I had a tubal ligation after my last child was born.  last month and even this month I "felt" that my period was coming (small cramping), but it never did.  My breast this month are very very full and barely fit in my bra now.  I took a pregnancy test a week ago and it came up negative.  What is wrong?  Is this menopause?  I am in my early thirties.

I'm 43 had my tubes tied in 2007 (have triplets plus one).  My last period was in November and I  am never late.  Here it is January and still nothing.  I went to a clinic today, first they received a negative result followed by a positive result using a more sensitive test.  I am scheduled to have an ultra-sound done in a couple of days.  What do you all think?

I too am having all the symptoms. I have missed 2 periods, I am tired all the time but wake lots of the time in the night. I am 41and had my tubes cut and tied in November 1999 after birth of 3rd child while having c-section. I have to have a fan in my room at night coz of hot flashes. I took a pregnancy test about 4 weeks ago which was negative, I really wish I had never been sterilized, biggest mistake of my life. Im gonna make an appointment for Dr for next week and will.keep.u updated, I wish earlier posters had done. Good luck all.

Dr appointment update, Dr took some blood and did a pregnancy test, test was negative. The blood to test my thyroid, hormone levels and blood count. He also had a good feel of my abdomen, nothing unusual there.
I'll post again when I get my results of blood test back. xx

Hi I'm Tiffany mom of 3 I had my tubal ligation after my daughter was born feb 28 2012. I had it done march or April. I had my period in oct it was like my normal cycle lighter. but I'm late 6 days . My breasts hurt all over, cramping lower abdomen, lower back. Took preg test neg. went to hospital had tests done dr on call said oh it's due to period coming. But I explained to the dr I haven't experience cramping like this and pain . They did ultrasound x- ray couldn't find anything wrong. And I'm having the same issues again . Plus 6 days late I didn't know what to do.

Hello everyone! I have read so many posts about tubes tied, light or late menstrual cycles and possible pregnancies. Let me just say that "IF YOU ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM...GO GET A PREGNANCY TEST ASAP! After my third child,I got my tubes cut, burn and destroyed. Approximately three years later I found out I was pregnant.I had the same symptoms most of you described. It was a shock to me and the hospital doctors because although my tubes were NOT ATTACHED, the embryo was implanted normal in the uterus and growing normal. After two months passed, there was no heartbeat so the doctors had to take the baby. All I can write is...PLEASE take a test or go to the doctor. Your overall health is important.

I am 27 and i had my tubal last year. I haven't had a period in like 5 months.  i have frequently started to have pain in my abdomen!  its freaks me out sometimes.  i stay really sleepy during the day but can't sleep at night. its crazy and i do feel moody at stupid times.  i don't know what it could be but it is kind of comforting to see that others are experiencing the same things. if anyone finds out a reason plz let me know!

I am in the same boat i always was on a 28 day cycle before my tubal ligation after my 2nd child in 1997 After that i gradually went to a 25 day cycle like clock work with some months of mid cycle spotting now i am 39 ..(40 in sept) and i am at least 3-5 days late no discharge no spotting nothing no period symptoms no pregnancy symptoms. i think i am overly worried but what could it be. I have not taken a preg test yet but i am sure i am not.

I got my tubes tied after my 3rd child. Its been 2 years now. I have had my period every 28 days for 6 days. But this month it was late by 4 days and it was light almost nothing and it lasted 3 to 4 days. I have been feeling a lot of cramps, lower back aches, tones of headaches, tender boobs, nausea, body temp up and down, a lot more tired then usual, some time dizzy/fatigue, and more. What do you think it could be?

It is well to hear that someone has seen the other side of this situation; which by the way I am in total shock that so many other women are going through.

I too have taken two EPTs, seven days apart with negative results for both. Again I am amazed to see how so many women are experiencing the same things; breast discomfort, slight cramping, history of being regular, post tubligation! Smh. Well, I am hopeful that I can look forward to seeing my cycle balance itself out. Whew!

I am going through the same thing. I had tubal ligation done with the rings 4 years ago and have been normal until now. I am 19 days late and still having negative hpt as well as urine test at the hospital. I have two kids and I am having all the same symptoms as I did with them. I have been searching and there are so many women out there that end up pregnant after this procedure. I was told to wait another week or two and take another. Hopefully I will have an answer soon..... if anyone else has any answers that will help will be great... I will add doctor did a blood test for other issues that could cause missed (.) which came back normal but did not do blood pregnancy test because urine test was negative.. I guess it is a waiting game.....

I'm going through the same thing.  I had  my tubes burned in 2009  after my 3rd child,  it was the right thing I thought at the time but I was 22 with3 kids. I've been praying for another child and recently I've missed two going  on 3 cycles. It's just a spotty discharge no cramping or other symptoms of my cycle.  I've been so tired and moody and nauseous but I took am at home pregnancy test and it was negative. However I'm getting weird  feelings and things going on in there. I'm worried and I'm not sure what to do, I feel like something is going on but what I don't know I have been told really menopause can happen after a tubal.  But I'm only 28 , help I don't know what to do I have no health insurance! The only other thing i can think is that the cervical canc.. is back but I'm praying that's not it.

I normally have a regular cycle, every 28 days. For the last two months now I haven't seen my cycle. I normally start my cycle around the 1st of the month or the end of the month. I've seen no sight of it at all last month nor this month. I had my tubal ligation July 9, 2012. My last child is almost 4 now and I'm in my late 30s so its a great concern for me because of my age and health. I've made the decision that if I don't have a cycle by Wednesday, I'll be making an appointment.

I've had a tubal ligation (clamps) since late August 2007, now 10 years and 2 months later ( Oct 5 2016) I had a miscarriage. Currently I am having signs of implantation bleeding. I'm now 33 years old. It can happen, and does happen more often than not. Good luck to everyone! I will know soon if this is a "normal" pregnancy or EP.
