Some thoughts...: Pregnancy is the most common cause of a missed period. If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc… A visit to one’s Ob-Gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

Tubal vs essure: They both provide permanent sterilization but the tubal requires general anesthesia and surgery into the abdomen with incisions that have to heal. It is immediately effective.

Rest of a work-up: 3 or 6? If u r ovulating but still not conceiving the question is what else is going on. Has he had a semen analysis? Is there a problem with cervical mucus? R your tubes open?
