Welcome to ehealthforum,
Tubes can get recanalized spontaneously over years and you can get pregnant. Your current symptoms (missed periods, spotting, feeling sick, vomiting, nausea, low backpain, abdominal cramps/discomfort, increased fatigue, sensitivity to foods and smell) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy.
Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and a blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). An ultrasound scan done will help to know the gestational age and calculate your probable date of conception. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Urine pregnancy tests are not 100% reliable. Sometimes they can also keep showing you false negative results during the first few months. Urine pregnancy test kits are calibrated ones, so they show positive results only after the hormonal levels in urine have reached a certain level. Blood/serum HCG levels are accurate and can detect pregnancy early (as early as 11 days post conception).
