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 having the same problems i had my tubes tied in november and i haven't had my period in two months i took a test and it was negative but i don't know if i should call the doctors. i'm not in any pain or anything so i figure that i don't really need too. but from what i have been looking up on this it seems common not to get your period after a tubal. take care everyone

I am having the same thing I called my gyno and he said to take pregnancy test and if it's positive come in if it's negative its okay if I don't have a period for 3 months but no longer and to come on in.  We shouldn't be going through this though, because we still have all the right plumbing! hope this helps!

I'm going through the same thing except last Wednesday (I was on the 12th day of my cycle) my husband and I were having intercourse and I was bleeding at some point durning. When we finished I had no more bleeding just a lot of cramps since. No my breasts are sore especially when I take my bra off. I've been going to the bathroom more and seem to be more sleepy. I had my tubes tied in 05 after my fourth was born. I would love some advice!!

I had my tubes tied in 02 after my third child. They did mine at the same time as my c-section. I was due to start my period on the 6th of this month and haven't had it yet. I took an at home pregnacy test and it came out negative. I have sharp pains in my ovary area as well. I wonder what it could mean. If you find out let me know, k.

I am going thru the same to be honest I am glad to see others going thru it too...I had a tubal in 1995 after my 3rd child. My last period ended Oct 17 2008. I pee alot, have no energy to do anything except sleep, My breasts are so sore that I cringe at the idea of taking my bra off, and my ankles are so fat that they are  now cankles. For the first 2 weeks in Nov I had hot flashes like you would not believe. This is just crazy !!!!!! What everyones elses results?? were you pregnant???  did you eventully get your peroid???  or is this early menopause for me? ( i am 35)

I am 43 and experiencing just about everything all of you are talking about. Missed period three months in a row, tubes tied two years ago, an endometrial ablation 1 year ago. Hot flashes started right after the ablation.

doctor put me on microestrogen, to balance out hormones. However, my blood tests came back normal. But my mood swings are NOT. So I am trying this out but I've gained six pounds in the last year and don't want to gain anymore weight.

You should go see a doctor, especially if you are not pregnant, not getting a period and are so young.

I will be 40 in March and had my tubes tied right after my 3rd child in 2003.  I have always had my normal cycle until last month.  I'm scared.  I am about 2 weeks late, my stomach feels like it does during my monthly, I get hot and dizzy a couple times.  I don't want to call the dr. because we don't have insurance.  I don't know what to do.  Haven't taken a prego test yet because I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant.  I'm sorry to see that there are so many others going through similar things.  What do we do?

I've had the same thing happen to me quite a few times in the past 3 years. i have a normal periods and then without worming they stop.  i have gone to the DR. to find out why and was told it was normal, my thought  Normal for who?  they gave me some hormone pills  for 7 days  and was sent home. yes i got my period but i want to know why it keeps happening to me.  is it a side effect to a tubal ligation.
my tubal was done in 98 after my son was born and had no problems till 06.
my mom on the other hand had a tubal back in 1984 and went into full on menopause
her ovaries  shut down.

I had my tubal in Jan 2009 after my third child. I haven't bought a test yet but I have all the symptoms I had with all three kids. Sept 1st will be the third month I have missed. I am so scared. Did some of you guys miss a lot of periods soon after you had your tubal?
