I haven't gotten my period yet but the thing is that my tubes are tied so I am thinking its impossible to be pregnant but yet I am 5 days late and have been more tired or maybe it just in my head . Should I wait to take a test? Or is my period cycle changing and thats why i haven't gotten it yet? Not sure what to do?
Can someone please help me

Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum!

Failure of tubal ligation is possible, hence take a pregnancy test and see. If this is negative then you may get your periods within a week.

If this does not happen then other causes will have to be looked at such as pregnancy (repeat the test), stress whether emotional or physical, hypothyroidism, polycystic disease of the ovary, pituitary tumors secreting prolactin, anemia and poor diet, unexplained or sudden weight gain or weight loss.

Hope this helps. Take care!
