I had a Tubal Ligation about 8 months ago. Since then, I've had a few regular periods but now, I've missed two periods in a row. I've done two pregnancy tests and they come up negative. I don't have any signs of pregnancy (I have three children) and am wondering how this could be possible and what could possiby be wrong with me. Has this happened to anyone else?

I talked with my Woman about this. She also had a tubaligation. This is what she told me. After the surgery there was some bleeding and 2 months missed periods. After that they where monthly again but not always the same length of time. After about a year she missed a month entirely. The following month it returned in huge amounts. Then things went back on there normal track. Unfortunatly she started feeling more cramping than normal. eventualy she went in for an exam and was told she delveloped endometriosis (scare tissue). In the end she ended up having to have a hysterectomy.

Her doctor feels that that month she missed is when the endometriosis started. Not trying to scare you but trying to give something to relate to. My advice would be to go get an exam to make sure you are not developing endometriosis.

I myself had a tubal done about 9 months ago and at first my periods were not regular but i can say that i ever missed one. i am experiencing the worst pain in my abdominal lower left side but i have not missed a period. i did however go through some other things after my tubal and i researched them online and i everything i read went to post tubal ligation syndrome which of course doctors say don't exist. anyways i would go see a doctor and get checked out. good luck and let us know how it goes!!!

Missed periods after tubal ligation
I had a tubal done the end of August of 2008. I have had mostly regular periods (I was late in December by about 1 week cause of the stress of the holidays). Then I was on track again until March. I didn't have one like I usually would at the end of March, so I waited a few weeks, and took a pregnancy test---it came up Negative----and I still haven't had one yet and it's mid-April. I was hoping this is normal for if you have a tubal ligation, but I haven't gotten any answers about it yet.

I am also going through the same situation...I am 35 and I had my tubal after having my 3rd child in October 2010. My cycles have been regular every month until now. My last cycle started May 5th and we are now approaching mid June. I had very light spotting for 3-4 days but nothing else. I feel extremely tired, I have been eating like there is no tomorrow, headaches and backaches daily...I took a hpt 3 days ago and it was negative. Not sure if my period is missing due to stress, possible pregnancy or could it even be early menopause? Planning on calling my doc in a week or two...would just like to know what may be going on with my body.

late with tubal
I had a tubal done 2 years ago, I was 10 days late this month. 4 negative hpt, 1 negative blood test. When it did come it was extremely light. I didn't fill a pad in 2 days. It started with brown discharge and I only bleed lightly 2 days, and have had the same brown discharge for 4 days after now. I have some symptoms, but I don't understand, im never late, and its never like this. Should I test again? Im lost!

I had my son on december 14th 2008 and had my tubal the next day. my periods have been very regular, my period came on the 13th of every month except for novenber then it came on the 25th. I didnt have a period at all in december of 2009. The only time I have ever missed a period was when I was pregnant. I am waiting for my dr. to come from vacation so that I can talk to her.

No Menstrual, had Tubial Ligation, and having pregnancy symptoms
I got my tubes tied on October, 29th 2009 and had menstrual in Novenber. I missed menstraul Dec, Jan, Feb, and Im still waiting now for one to come. I have been feeling very tired, dizzy, hungry, and irritable. I took pregancy test a couple weeks ago and It didnt show up right (Which was invalid). I have 3 sons 8,3, and 1 years old. I am 23 years old. I am very regretful for getting this procedure done due to me having these symptoms and also because I want to have a babygirl. I believe TR is too expensive. My husband says that he wouldnt mind having another child. I am so confused as to why I am having sharp pains in my sides and having hot flashes, no period and movement in belly not too much movement but just enough. I am going to doctor tommorow because I cant go on feeling pregnant and wondering if i am pregnant when my tubes are tied. I shoouldn't have ever got this procedure done. Sad Sad

I am feeling the same way... All the way around. I had a tubal done five years ago and don't understand what's going on. I am only 10 days late yet seem to be having unusual symptoms. Pains on my left side posterior to the overy, light back pain, feeling as tho my period is going to start but doesn't, fluttering in my abdomin, blotting, felling of tiredness, hungry more than usual and more frequent urinenating. I am 33 and already have two children, 17 and 11. The guy I'm seeing already has one on the way and is freaking out... Now with all this I'm freaking out! Sad I have been reading up on the possibility of this great miracle and its not common but has a small possibility of. I just wondering I guess if this can actually happen... Tubes growing back together after cut and burned? Has anyone ever had this happen?

I went to Doctor on the 4th and on the 5th and the Doctor checked my tummy and I felt pain when she did this. The doctor said that I could be pregnant or if not that, then it could be cyst growing. She had me take urine pregnancy test which was negative, so I got some blood drawn for more accurute Pregnancy test and also other tests. This morning I woke up in extreme pain all around my lower abdomen and My sides. She also prescribed a hormone pill called Provera to make periods come back, but I cant take pill until I get pregnancy results back. I have to wait unitl Monday to get test results. I will keep all updated.


@ HSHACKELFORD02 I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT U GO TO DOCTOR TO GET AN HCG BLOOD TEST (PREGNANCY TEST), DUE TO THE FACT THAT YOU CAN HAVE TUBAL PREGNANCY THAT IS EXTREMLY DANGEROUS TO YOU IS WHY YOU CAN BE GETTING NEGATIVE READ ON PREGNANCY URINE TEST, OTHER THINGS CAN BE WRONG SUCH AS CYST ETC. IF THEY CANT FIND ANYTHING THEY WILL GIVE YOU A HORMONE PILL CALLED PROVERA TO TAKE FOR 5 DAYS SO THAT PERIOD CAN COME BACK. God Bless!

Hey, I finally got test results back from Blood test hcg and it was negative. I will be going back to see doctor on Wednesday because I had other test ran also. It could be due to cysts on the cervix and I had a diagnosis back in April of 2004 of cervical cancer but they caught it in time and froze the lesions of my cervix so im thinking getting my tubes tied can trigger them back up. I also heard that if you get tubes tied it is possible that thie can cause no blood flow to ovaries because fallopian tubes arent giving the ovaries the blood flow because tubes are either blocked tied or burnt etc.. It can be stress anixety and smoking cigarettes that can cause your period to not come also. Its is highly recommended to see Doctor to really get to the bottom of why this is happening. I will be updating. Good Luck!

RUNGIRL28, p.s. I totatlly REGRET it to BUT it is possible that after a amount of time after getting your tubes tied that they can grow back or one of the tubes can be a little loose and the sperm can make its way through the fallopian tubes. I heard of alot of women having babies after tubes was tied. Some stories are a sucess some aren't meaning tubal pregnancy. I would not give up and I would keep faith in the Lord because through him anything is possible. You should go to other forums about women getting pregnant after tubes were tied. Good Luck Hun!!!
