I'm just over 3 weeks late on my period. Had a tubal ligation 5 years ago. Feeling sharp pains to lower right abdomen and loose tummy for a week now.

Late period/tubal: Tubal ligations are generally successful as birth control, but some may re-open, and since there is damage to the integrity of the tube, the chance for a tubal pregnancy is higher. Get a serum HCG test, and if positive, an ultrasound via your gyn provider.

See your surgeon: A "severely distended" belly after a c/section deserves an evaluation. If the incision is red or draining, or you have a fever, vomiting or severe pain, you should go to the ER ASAP. If you are feeling well except for this, you need to call or see your surgeon in person. Most surgeons would rather see you in person. If there is a problem, they can deal with it early. Best wishes! ...Read more

Tubal ligation done 2 years mirena (levonorgestrel) inserted july 2014 having painful abdominal spasms and extremely emotional. Is this normal?

Double therapy?: Your brief history sound a bit strange unless something is missed there.

As far as symptoms you are complaining of, yes Levonorgestrel (active ingredient in Mirena (levonorgestrel)) may cause it.

I'm having pressure and stretching feeling in my lower abdomen I was spotting a few days ago and I had a tubal ligation 15months ago what could it be?

Pelvic discomfort: It is possible that your discomfort is due to adhesions for the tubal ligation. After surgery the body makes stringy bits of fascia to heal the wound inside. Sometimes these adhesions give a pulling sensation or even pain.
On the other hand, you might have a UTI or other infection which will cause those symptoms, so best to get checked. ...Read more

Amenorrhea: Severe stress (emotional or externally caused) can stop regular ovulation. Without ovulation, a "period" will not occur. Get a serum HCG test to be certain you are not pregnant. Tubal ligations are not 100%, but pregnancy is very rare. Most likely your symptoms are from either an oncoming period or a urinary tract infection. See your healthcare provider for testing and reassurance. ...Read more
