You can ask your Mom how she was when she began. See if you can find either an endocrinologist or a gynecological endocrinologist who will guide you through the appropriate work-up.

What are the chances of a 32yr getting prego after 10 years having tubes tied and burned ? And missed period 2 positive hpt and 1 neg hpt

What are the chances of a 32yr getting prego after 10 years having tubes tied and burned ? And missed period 2 positive hpt and 1 neg hpt

1 in 300: the failure rate of tubal ligation is about 1 in 300 and is usually due to a tubal fistula. However, many people misread the home hpt as positive by letting it sit out too long. This is called an evaporation line. So, since tomorrow is friday and since most post tubal pregnancies end up in the tube. Call your doctor right away tomorrow morning and ask for a serum(blood) pregnancy test. ...Read more

The whole system is still getting into sync, and the hormones sometimes don't communicate properly with each other right away. If it's a notably prolonged period, abnormal bleeding or there's pain, call your doc. ...Read more
