had tubal ligation reversal ...

User Profile
I t had tubal ligation reversal surgery in June of 2010. Fast forward to Feb. 22, 2011: I was expecting my menses on Feb. 22. I finally started getting brown spots (typical of the first few days of my menstrual cycle); however, this time the spotting continued until Friday, Feb. 25th while I was traveling to Dublin to visit my husband, then my full bleeding began. I continued to bleed until March 2nd when it finally stopped, so I was able to resume sexual activity with my husband. After our first night, I woke up to bright red spotting in my underpants. It did not look or smell like menstrual blood, so I assumed that it was irregular bleeding and just continued with normal activity. We had intercourse at least once a day until I returned. I am now experiencing pain in my low back, left abdomen, lower right abdomen, and upper right leg (front middle). I have been extremely tired and emotional. I have also had brown spots 2 days ago, followed by yellowish spots. Period not due for 6 days.

Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

Wait another 3-4 days and take a blood pregnancy test. If this is negative, and you do not get periods, then repeat the pregnancy test. The symptoms can also be due to pelvic inflammatory disease, cervicitis or inflammation of cervix or vaginal infection. Hypothyroidism and PCOD are the other possibilities. Please consult your gynecologist regarding this as a confirmed diagnosis is not possible on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
