User Profile
Every since I had my tubes tied on December 11,2008 I have had irregular periods. They used to be 3 days tops then 5 days and very heavy. Over the last 5 months or so I have been having a cycle every month but it stops completely on day 3 and continues like nothing happened for the next 2 days. This month I started my period and the first day was heavy as usual but the second day nothing the third day I spotted for about an hour then nothing. That saturday I was very nauseaous and vomited. Is this normal after having TL? is there a possibility I could be pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the symptoms without examining you. Changes in menstrual cycle/period pattern could be due to hormonal derangements, thyroid hormone imbalances, endometrial changes, etc. The symptoms that you describe could also be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy (possible due to chances of spontaneous recanalization). You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation to look for the underlying cause for your symptoms. Treatment as appropriate would be suggested based on examination and investigation results) to help you. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
