3 months of periods that have only last 1-2 days

User Profile
Pregnant or Not? I have had 3 months of periods that have only last 1-2 days and are light (1 pad for the entire day and it's not saturated). I have 3 children already and had a tubal 6 years ago. The last 2 weeks I have been experiencing many of the pregnancy symptoms. Tender and enlarging breasts (up a cup size), frequent urination, fatigue, food cravings, some nausea, pressure/fullness where my uterus is and even what feels like movement. My periods would usually last 3 days with cramping. I have not had any cramping the last 3 months. I am 37 years old and my fiance and I would welcome more children if God blessed us. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests(all in the morning) and they all came out negative. But I FEEL pregnant. I'm not sure what to think though.

Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

After tubal ligation pregnancy chances are possible but since it has been about 3 months by now the pregnancy test would give up results.There could be various reasons of the above reported symptoms as hormonal imbalance due to any underlying uterine abnormality as fibroids,endometritis,thyroid hormone abnormalities or even ectopic pregnanc which is a possibility after tubal.

You need a careful pelvic examination and investigations as USG scan and Blood test which would help in ruling out the cause so that accordingly treatment can be started.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take care!
