I am at a complete loss here. I am 45 yrs. old. I've had regular periods since puberty. I have had 4 children and know what it's like to feel pregnant. Lately, my periods have been coming closer together (28 days apart as opposed to 30 6 months ago). I was having hot flashes and night sweats and very moody up for about 6 months up until just the last 2 weeks. I had my tubes tied 21 yrs. ago, but since then have had at least 2 miscarriages - no normal pregnancies though. I had unprotected sex 22 days ago. It would have been very near the middle of my cycle. Now I am 8 days late for my period. I have very tender breasts, feel bloated, but no cramps (I usually have major cramps before my period). I felt a little nauseous this morning when I went to drink my coffee, but think it could have just been a little bug or something. I am just wondering what the chances are of me being pregnant... or if anyone else has had this experience. Also I'm wondering if I am... what are the odds of being able to carry this baby to term?? HELP

Probably higher for you since it sounds as if you have been pregnant twice since your tubes have been tied.

Take a pregnancy test to see if you are pregnant. You'll need to get into a doctor ASAP considering your age and history.

Good luck!

were you pregnant - Oct 2007
I just googled my own symptoms and found your post from October 18 months ago. Were you pregnant? I've made a docs appt as a test was neg, but it was well past it's sell by and early tests can give false negs can't they. As in your case I am 45 and have four children, my youngest is 5, and i just now feel like i can spend proper time with them as well as having a little time for myself, so another pregnancy would be challenging - disastrous financially - but something will turn up as they say. I'd be really interested to hear your story.

Being 45, have you considered this could be peri-menopause?

pregnant or peri-menopause
Yes, that's what the answer is i suppose, either one or the other - rather anxious to know which though. Plus, although not completely reckless as regards contraception, i have always seen my period as welcome confirmation!

There are occassions where the tubes can grow back together. Whether your tubes were cut, burned and tied off or just cut and tied or even just clamped makes a big difference in the risk of future pregnancy. All of this should have been explained to you when you had the original surgery.

Nothing is 100% when it comes to birth control. Discuss this with your doctor.

the morning after pill is only sucessful if you take it within 72 hours of unprotected sex. The sooner you take it the better. It is not 100 percent. Since you are late and having symptoms I would take a pregnancy test. It is very likely you could still be pregnant or it could be the morning after pill threw your cycle off either way good luck hun!
