Periods after baby: Tubal ligations do not affect periods. Sometimes periods take a while to get back to normal the first few months after having a baby. This is especially true if you are breastfeeding. Consider tracking your cycles over the next few months to see if things normalize. If not then you can see you Obgyn. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I had a tubal ligation in Oct of 2013 when I had my 3rd child via c section. Since then my periods have been completely irregular. Help!!!

Not due to tubal: I don't believe your tubal ligation has much to due with your irregular menses at this point, nothing to really be worried about as long as it was done correctly. Your gyenacologist could put you on some hormone therapy to regulate your nenses so that they are more predictable! ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is rare after a tubal ligation. ...Read more

What to do if I had my 3rd csection 5 months ago and now my periods hurt more then ever. Could I have a tubal infection?

Probably not: Not certain, but tubal infections usually do not manifest in the way you describe. The pain should be constant not only during menses and there should be fever and generalized signs of infection.
There may be adhesions/scar tissue or changes to your uterus since it's had 3 cuts into it.
You may want to discuss with your Obgyn strategies for hormone control to pause menses ...Read more

Hi docs, would I get my period after c section?

Hi docs, would I get my period after c section?

Yes: When a woman gets a period after cesarean has a few factors to consider. Breastfeeding? Breastfeeding can stop normal menstruation, thus a woman may not have a period the entire time she's breastfeeding. If not, then period may come as soon as 6 weeks after cesarean, but could definitely take longer even without breastfeeding. You'll release egg prior to menses, so use birth control if worried. ...Read more

See your doctor: It's not very likely that you are pregnant if your surgery was done correctly, but if you are concerned about your health you should see your doctor. There is a very small incidence of tubal pregnancy after tubal ligation even when it is done correctly. Tubal pregnancies can be life threatening. Also, missing a period can be caused by many other things unrelated to pregnancy. ...Read more
