In brief: Tying your tubes
A tubal ligation should not change how many times a year you have a period.
You should have a period at least every 3 months unless you are on certain medicines or in menopause. See your doctor.

In brief: No
Many stories still circulate about how tubal ligations cause irregular periods.
Not true! many women tend to get their tubes tied in their late 30s and early 40s; many women start to have abnormal periods in their late 30s and early 40s -- bam! now the 2 get "tied" together! but...Not related at all.
