Doctors and nurses should not judge you or make you feel like a fool. Your primary care provider will listen to your story and they will probably give you a pregnancy test, but they may also recommend other tests. Ultimately it is your body and you have to protect it. If you are uncomfortable with your current care provider, find a new one! You can totally "fire" them if you feel they don't respect you.
It is rare but possible to get pregnant following tubal ligation, and pregnancy tests only check for the hormone HCG, which is why you can get false negatives. Go see your primary care provider if nothing else it will hopefully put your mind at ease!
Good luck

It could be the fact you do have your tubes tied. You can go without a period totally. But if you have that feeling you might be go to the doctor and ask it does happen and it is usually a tubal baby. So I would ask just to be safe.

I used to not want to tell my doctors things either, but now it doesn't seem to matter, if they judge me then they have no business being in that field.
so far I have not had any problems but have also had female doctors, until now, also your health is more important than what some doctor thinks.
Take care and hope all works out for your good health.
