Doubtful/Possible: It is possible but unlikely you are pregnant. More likely irregular menses due to being perimenopausal. That said, i would recommend a blood pregnancy test (serum hcg) to be sure. A positive pregnancy test in a patient who has had a tubal ligation warrants further investigation. If the pregnancy test is negative i would manage expectantly and see what the next few months are like.
