im 34 yrs old. got sterilized 9 yrs ago. and im now late on my period. been suffering from sickness, heartburn, fatigue, lower back pains and faint from time to time, i have been under a lot of stress past month and put a lot down to that, but now that im late im beginning to wonder as i am never normally late, if anything im early,
I had my tubes tied in 11 yrs ago but I recently started feeling fatigue and nausea and my face started breaking out with acne that I never had problems with before....could that be a symptom of pregnancy? I haven't had no test done yet.
UPDATE: I had a tubal ligation done a little over 1 year ago. 2 months ago I had all the pregnancy symptoms. Nausea, sore breats, fatigue, hormonal/emotional roller coaster, cramps, spotting, no real period, etc. My HPT and blood test were neg. I ended up demanding for a sonogram because I thought I was going crazy. Well, they didn't see anything. I was not pregnant. They did blood tests to check for thyroid problems, perimenopause, cysts, etc. All tests were negatives. The Dr said it could just be an "off" cycle and everything usually get back to normal. And it did. I'm back with regular cycles, normal period, and no symptoms. However, I really kind of wished I had been pregnant. But I'm really trying to get that out of my mind, knowing how impossible/improbable it is. I can't set myself up for disappointment month after month because I'm not pregnant. I don't know why I feel this way....I've had my tubal ligation for over a year, never thought about it twice, knowing we can't handle a forth child....but now I find myself wanting to be pregnant again! I truly felt saddened by my choices.....I don't even want to ask God to grant us a miracle.....I'm scared I would just set myself up for disappointment after disappointment.....Anyways.....I just never thought I would go through this grieving/mourning phase about a tubal ligation and being finished for good....Good luck to all of you!
I also had my tubal when I was 27. I regretted every bit of it. I am 40 yrs old and in my 2nd marriage, my husband and I really don't plan to have a baby because we both have two sets of children! But I still feel guilty for having the tubal. I always advise younger ladies to ask their spouses to have the vasectomy because its easier to reverse if you want any more children. I feel your pain and don't feel silly for feeling this way..hugzzz.
Pregnancy after tubal ligation is possible, but not very likely. It happens in a very small percentage of cases. The only way you are going to know for certain is to take a pregnancy test. If you are in fact pregnant, it is important to see your Dr. fairly quickly, as pregnancy after tubal ligation does run a higher risk of tubal pregnancy. Best of luck to you.
i can't be much of help but i know how you feel i have a boyfriend that is 5 months older then me and has no kids of his own and i have 3 kids already and it is wrecking our relationship cause i can't have any more kids and it hurts,but trying too find a way too get them untied is a pain i don't have much money too untie my tubes, or find a doctor who can take medical too cover it for me too have more kids.
i had a tubal ligation almost nine years ago and i wish i hadnt. I have two beautiful boys. they tell me everyday they would like a brother or a sister. God knows what is best though so if he wants me to have another one he will let me. i Hope he does. so God bless and thank him for the miracles that you have, even if it seems like a struggle, children are a blessing.
I can truely understand what you are saying. I am 37 yrs old my youngest is 13 I had my tub tied twice 2 months after him and then 5 years later they came a loose and my ex-husband suggested getting them retied and of course thinking marriage is forever did it out of love for him. I was thinking I would be with my first husband for ever however, it ended in devoice when my son was 6. I am now remarried I desire with all my heart to have one child by my husband now. I wouldn't tell anyone women to have tubal ligation because you never know when you want another and can't because of the tubal ligation and reverse is to much $$$$. I am currently 4 days late no period yet inwhich I am 26-28 cycle like clock work. I hoping and praying it is a positive pregnacy test.
Have you had any symptoms of pregnancy? If so for how long? I had my tubes clamped 5 years ago due to the fact my hubby (now my ex) didnt want anymore children. Usually my PMS symptoms are similiar to pregnancy symptoms and can start two weeks before I am due but cease when I start. This time they are worse and have lasted long after I have finished. I have had my last three periods but they have not been normal. I have been told it could be the start of menopause. I get blood test results back today. Here's hoping that its not menopause, I dont believe it to be.
I am 44 yrs old and a mother to 6 children with my oldest being 26 1/2 and my youngest being 10 1/2. i am also a g.ma to 3 with 2 more on the way, my issue is that i had my tubes cut/seared/clamped back in 2002 i think the whole works cuz i am way to fertile. Any ways i am now 18 days late and yes i know the whole menapausal thing but i have absolutley no symtoms (symptoms) for that. After my last period dec. 3 i guess during my ovulation time my breasts got severely sore and THEY NEVER DO OR DID BEFORE. I dont care if i am going into menapause becuz i hv had no preefects but i am terrified of being pregnant at my age even though i am healthy.

I had my tubes tied almost 2 years ago I so want another baby but hubby doesn't but does I was 26 when the doctor tied my tubes I am now 28 I looked into a tubal reversal and it will cost 4550 - 4800. I took 6 HPT's and all have a faint positive went to the doctor and they took blood and did a urine test both came out negative don't know what to do all my friends and family thinks I am crazy I have 4 boys their ages are 8 , 4 , 3 and 22 months old I just want to have another baby. I came from a big family 7 brothers and sisters 3 nephews and 2 nieces and my baby fever is kicking my butt I so regret getting my tubes tied.
I hand my tude tied 15 years ago like a dummie I regretted from day one. Every month for a lest 13 years I prayed to God let this be the month I conceived and have a healthy baby. Every month I get my period I pray so hard and long for this. And I know it's a slim chance just praying for a miracle everyday . I pray all time for women not to do this you will regret it later on in life. I'm be 43 three this month this all I pray god will allowed this to be the year I become pregnant. Asking you'll to pray for me it hurts allot and I lot of you'll know how it feel. And I will pray for you'll thanks Unspeakable Joi
I had a tubal done 22 years ago, after having 3 beautiful boys, but definately couldnt handle having any more kids with my now ex. I remarried 4 years ago to a wonderful man, he doesn't have any children of his own. We have both been praying for a miracle ever since we married. I am 2 and a half months overdue for my period, and have all the symptoms of being pregnant, nauseous, can't smoke either, makes me sick, very tired, breasts swollen and tender. I dont have any pain in my side or shoulder etc , scared of a tubal pregnancy. I know last year I had a miscarriage, so , I figure if it got past the tubes that time, no reason why it can't get past again. Getting a pregnancy test on wednesday. I am praying for you too Joi
My fiance and I are getting married either this week or next and I have children who he has all but adopted, but he has none of his own to carry out his legacy. I experienced light spotting today, a week before my period. I have been really tired, and moody too. I have had a few odd cravings-like an ice cold fountain drink or a pulled pork sandwich from SUBWAY-but nothing that would make me think anything until now. Should I get my hopes up? I really want to have his children, but I too underwent tubal litigation 7 years ago and I have been afraid that I would not be able to have his little ones.
I am praying with you. I know how scary and hard it is for you to want to give him a child and the fear of not being able to do so. God bless you. I pray that he opens your womb and gives you all a child.
I am about to be 41 yrs old in December. I have 3 children, ages ranging from almost 21 to about to be 11. I had a tubal ligation done in 2003, to where my only tube was clamped. I had an ectopic pregnancy that ruptured in 2001 and then a miscarriage in 2003. Recently i had not been engaging in sexual intercourse up until July. Since then i have not had a period. This month makes 4 months. Im experiencing all kinds of pregnancy syptoms (symptoms). No syptoms (symptoms) of menopause. Is it possible that i may be pregnant after all these years? Oh and my tube was clamped. Not tied or burnt. Please help. Im worried because of my past history.
I had my tubes tied @ 10 years ago my periods have been regular since except in sept it came 9days early and then again in oct 6 days early and here I am now 9 days before it should come and I have the early pinkness when I wipe meaning it's coming earlier yet again been having tender breasts strange feelings in my abdominal area kind of fluttery at times lower backache headaches very emotional sick at my stomach dizziness feeling like I'm gonna pass out when I stand up always hungry but get nauseated when I eat or even try anyone familiar with any of this
I have to say to all of you that are trying and do want babies I Hope you all get a miracle and get the baby you want. to the lady who lost your baby at 31 days after birth I am so sorry. there is no words to help after the loss of an infant or any child for that matter. I pray in my heart that you get your rainbow baby. I will continue to keep you all in my thoughts. I know how it feels to want to have a baby so bad after a tubal it is so frustrating. My family all pressured me into mine I wish I hadn't listened to them now.
I had my tubes tied/cut/carterized 11 Years ago after my 4th child. I am now 41 years old and I am 5 months pregnant...naturally. Although I am extremely excited it was quite a shock. My new husband has never had any children of his own so just 2 years ago I got a referral to a Dr. to reverse the tubal. After my Dr. explained the procedure I had had and how unlikely the success rate would be for a reversal I just kinda forgot about it. We were'nt trying to get pregnant but were not taking any precautions to prevent it because it was "impossible". I guess not. lol.
I know it was meant to be and i hate to even question it but HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN?? No one at my Dr. office can really explain except for to say that it happens more often than you would know. I've got a baby being born in April and another going off to college in August. This is definitely going to be a life changer. This is my crazy life and Im so thankfull for it!! :-)
I had my tubes tide about 5yrs ago, for the past 4wks I have been having abdominal pains and lost of appetite, also been nauseous and throwing up off and on... I have lost about 10lbs unintentionally... everyday it's been going on for weeks this is getting old...
I don't think you are crazy. The procedures are not 100%. there is a 1.6 chance of still getting pregnant in the first three years after your tubal and it goes up to 1.8% after 3 years. It is not common but happens more frequently than people think. 1 or 2 women out of a thousand will become pregnant.
Also I am having all the same thoughts as you. I had my tubal 2.5 yrs ago and now I am having symptoms. I went to the dr. to see if something was wrong, like a cyst, appedicitus or something and he is running a bunch of blood tests. Among them is a pregnancy test. Although we felt our family was complete part of me wonders if I am feeling more than I am out of some unknown desire for another? but I am feeling nauseous, pressure on my abdomen is really uncomfortable, I have been going pee more often, I had a period but it was a lot shorter than normal and somehow I just "feel" pregnant again.
I don't trust blood tests or pregnancy tests because when I was pregnant with my daughters they didn't and couldn't find out I was pregnant unless I had an ultrasound done. I fought with my doctor for 6 months before he said I will prove you wrong, and to his surprise I was right I was 6 and a half months pregnant. Everybody's body responds to pregnancy differently. I had a tubal ligation done 10 and a half years ago and I have had 3 miscarriages because doctors don't care and they don't listen. You know your body better than anyone if you think something is not right ask for an ultrasound blood tests and pregnancy tests don't always work.

I had my tubes burnt 10 months ago when I had a C-section. my periods have pretty regular starting every 30-32 days. But now I have not had my period since Nov.28th. I really didn't think a whole lot about it until I started searching the other night and now have read SEVERAL stories where women have still gone on to get pregnant.
I also had a tubal 12 years ago. My tubes were tied, cut and cauterized. I am now almost 42 and 6 months pregnant with a healthy baby girl. I have a child heading off to FSU this year and a baby on the way. CRAZY!! I am extremely excited to start this adventure all over again but it was an absolute shock. I honestly didn't even think it was possible but in just my Dr. office alone there is another pregnant mama that had her tubes tied. I'm thinking the odds aren't quite what the surgeons suggest they are.
My tubal took place Aug 21, 1998...my youngest is 16 in May and my two oldest are both in college this fall. I've heard the failure rate increases every year after clips inserted for tubal. At times, I've pondered what it would we like. Now that I am experiencing symptoms I had with my last daughter's pregnancy, I'm thinking of buying a test to be sure. What were your earliest symptoms and when did you experience them? Good luck and blessings to you and yours!
I am now 2 months late. I took 2 home pregnancy tests back on Jan16th and 20th. Both came out negative. What is really strange is I have been really regular since my Tubal ligation on March 14, 2013.Now no period since Nov. 28th 2013. I am getting ready to take another test soon.
I am almost 36 I had my tubes clamped 11 years ago and my periods have been so regular you can set your clock by it. I am now 1week late. I have nausea, fatigue, bloating, and cravings.....I know the probability of pregnancy is very slim.....and I think I'm to young for menopause can someone please help me?
