Hormonal fluctuation: can throw off your schedule, and that can be related to stress or infection, or thyroid dysfunction. Some women your age will start to see some irregularity as menopause approaches. It is unlikely that you are pregnant after your tubal, but it does happen, and a test would reassure you about that. Give it a few months and then discuss with your doctor if still a problem.
