Pregnancy test: Tubal ligations are very reliable but they do occasionally fail. Take a pregnancy test. If you are not pregnant then there are many reason's for a missed period such as hormonal shifts, early menopause, stress, and thyroid disorders. If you are not pregnant and do not get a period soon, see your doctor for an evaluation.
