Missed period after a tubal ligation eleven months ago. Could I be pregnant?

Missed period after a tubal ligation eleven months ago. Could I be pregnant?

Yes!: If you miss a period, it is important to take a pregnancy test to confirm that you are not pregnant *even after* a tubal ligation. Tubal ligation is not foolproof at preventing pregnancy. If your urine pregnancy test is positive, you should see a physician quickly because there is an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

I had a c-cection 4 months ago and also had a tubal ligation I missed my period last month and also had negative pregancy test is this normal?

Normal.: Irregular periods after a pregnancy are very common and due to irregular ovulation - nothing to do with your tubal ligation. Chance of becoming pregnant with your tubes tied is 0.3% (1/300). If still in doubt, see your gynecologist and repeat another pregnancy test in a week. ...Read more

Pregnancy test: The most important thing to rule out is pregnancy. Tubal ligation does not fail very often but when a pregnancy does occur it is more likely to be in the tube. This is an ectopic pregnancy and is dangerous. If the test is positive then you need to be seen immediately. If the test is negative you should still see your doctor to see what's happening. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Are irregular periods normal after a bilateral tubal ligation? I had one 8/13/2012, and my period started back in september. I've missed 2 periods

Maybe: If you just had a baby or just stopped birth control pills around the time of your tubal ligation, it could be normal.

Check a pregnancy test just to make sure you are not pregnant. If you continue to skip periods, see the doctor who performed your tubal ligation and get his/her advice. ...Read more

I had a tubal ligation eleven months ago and have had very irregular periods and finally missed one last month! What is going on?

Not ovulating: If your periods are irregular, it can be a sign that you are not ovulating. This is probably not due to your tubal, but possibly due to a hormonal imbalance. See your obgyn and they can help you find out. ...Read more

I got my tubal ligation om 2005 39 days no period what's wrong?

Check for pregnancy: Tubal ligation is very effective at preventing pregnancy but no contraceptive method is 100% effective. Therefore, if your cycle is delayed you should check a pregnancy test or even see you gynecologist for blood pregnancy test because if you are pregnant there is a chance it could be a tubal pregnancy and that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. ...Read more

On 7/3 I had a tubal ligation and nexplanon removed. Still no period should I be worried or is this normal?

Probably: It will probably take a while for it all to get out of your system. How long? That probably varies, But the best sign is development regular periods (or getting pregnant). So decide if you want to get pregnant or not and act accordingly. If not, get on an alternate form of birth control toute suite (that's "pronto" for those of you in the West...). ...Read more

I had a tubal ligation almost 2 years ago. I am 24 now. My periods are irregular sometimes. I had sex 11/7 and still no period. I'm moody and crampy bu?

, need gynecologist: To check why, usually pregnacy test even though tubal. Then pelvic ultrasound, tubals cause alot of cramps and 4x likelyhood of hysterectomy later but you are very young for even that. Will probably need medroxyprogesterone for 10 days to slough off lining of uterus for overestrogen ...Read more

Missed period I have no symptoms. Had tubal ligation a year ago took pregnancy test said negative an hour later said positive should I go to doctor?

Re do test: If it was the same test that looked positive about an hour later, that is not reliable. You need to read the test within the prescribed time. It is not likely that you are pregnant. However you should repeat the test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I had a tubal ligation in 2007. I just missed a period and I have stomach pains with every movement and breath. Is pregnancy possible?

Definately possible: How: re-canalization of the tube; meaning re-opening.
Where is the pregnancy: in the tube or inside the uterus and this is very important, your physician should put all his effort in localizing the pregnancy.
If pregnancy is in the tube it can be removed using laparoscopy (both tubes can be removed at the same time). ...Read more

I want a tubal ligation or anything to stop my period permanently?

I want a tubal ligation or anything to stop my period permanently?

A tubal won't do it.: Tubal ligation will not stop your period from occuring and may increase the interval frequency by interrupting the blood supply between the ovary and uterus. There are medications and surgeries that can completely arrrest your period. Ask your obgyn md for those alternatives. ...Read more

Tubal ligation in 2007. Cycles=25 days 7 day period. LMP 11/18 lasted 4 days. Light. 3 neg tests. Moderate pelvic pain. Now 23 days late. Help!

Testing: Since the preg tests were negative several times, I would start looking into other causes for delayed menses. The thyroid gland and the pituitary gland come to mind. You may want to see a gynecologist to start looking into the issue. ...Read more

Could tubal ligation affect my periods. I had my procedure done mid cycle and it's been two weeks since but I didn't start my period on the first.

Depends how it was d: Done, I only do essure in the office, the stress form the surgery could affect this period, you can always do a blood preg test to make sure so u do not have to worry, if u had a laparoscpic tubal, sometimes that can affect the blood supply to the ovaries, I do not even do that kind anymore, since essure is so much easier and less pain and no cutting and does not ever affect the ovaries. ...Read more

My period is 4 days late, on the 3rd day I spotted once. I had a normal pap within 30 days. I had a tubal ligation done 5 years ago. I have low iron.

Probably normal: I believe you are experiencing the surprise of a woman who has always had regular periods & for the first time something is a little different. The tubal ligation essentially assures that you are not pregnant. Being 4 days late is really in the normal range. These changes may increase as you age. Good rule of thumb: OK to watch/wait for 10-14 days before contacting provider. ...Read more

Hi! I'm 45 years old, 18 days late on my period, and have never been late before also had a tubal ligation 15 yrs ago. I started the hcg diet 3 mos ag?

Diet/ protection: If you are sexually active and not protected, get checked for pregnancy, even at 45. I would suggest, more likely, hormonal shifts, pre-menopausal changes, and get checked fro thyroid and endocrine imbalances. Tubal ligations can fail and pregnancies can occur outside of the uterus (ectopic), See your GYN. ...Read more

I had a tubal ligation done seven years ago. I have noticed the last three years an amonia smell around the time I will start my period.

Bacterial vaginosis: Foul smelling discharge needs to be evaluated. The most common cause is a nonsexually transmitted overgrowth of bacteria called bacterial vaginosis. Testing for other sexually transmitted disease may need to be done as well. This vaginal odor is not related to having your tubes tied. ...Read more
