Absent periods could suggest pregnancy,underlying hormonal imbalances, thyroid hormone abnormalities, endometritis, uterine polyps,ovarian cysts etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation.It is unusual to suddenly miss period after a long duration.Some woman have reported pregnancy after ligation.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation,based on the diagnosis appropriate treatment would be started.
Bee2...I am in the same spot as you and if you see this, how did it all turn out for you? I have had regular periods every 28 days and now a week late after 6 years tubal ligation. My test today is neg. Going to the hospital today and see if they will do a blood test. Thanks Momof2
