Welcome to ehealthforum,
You can have changes in bleeding pattern due to hormonal changes, infections, pregnancy, anemia or ovarian issues. It is better to have a thorough evaluation done with your gynecologist to confirm the exact cause. If pregnancy is suspected, it is important to be detected early. Since you had the tubal ligation done, chances of ectopic pregnancy increase which can result in life threatening complications. Hormonal analysis and ultrasound scan done would help in looking for any other causes. Appropriate treatment would be started to help you with getting periods back to normal.
Take care.
