Get pregnancy test: There still is a small chance of pregnancy after getting your tubes "cut, tied and burned." The risk is about 5.5% over the 10 years after the surgery. Since this is new for you, you should probably get a pregnancy test. However, there are other possibilities. For example, you may not have ovulated this month so there was not signal for a period. Happens to most women occasionally.
Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Delayed menses: It is most likely a normal delay in your period if your pregnancy test is negative. Tubal ligations can and do fail by recanalizing the Fallopian tubes. (growing around the obstruction.) so a pregnancy test is the first step in assessing this situation.
Dr. Peter Baumann
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Pregnancy test: Women, who have their tubes tied at a young age, are at an about 20 fold higher risk of failure and getting pregnant than women over the age of 35. When menses are delayed after a tubal ligation, pregnancy always needs to be considered.

Probably not: In younger women congestive dysmenorrhea can be very severe just before and the first 1-2 days of the cycle. If the symptoms are so severe consider using oral contraceptives which will relieve the symptoms. Talk to your gynecologist about it.

Get off it: Dilantin should be relegated to history. It is an old drug of high toxicity and major problems with use. Talk to your doctor about getting off or at least changing to a newer and safer seizure medication.
A 39-year-old member asked:

Does painful ovulation mean there will be a painful menstrual cycle?

Not necessarily: Painful ovulation can potentially be caused by a large preovulation cyst, or a small amount of blood was released during ovulation, or scar tissue being present around the ovary. Subsequent menstruation may not be painful.
