Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

The first possibility of missed periods after tubes being tied is pregnancy and that definitely needs to be ruled out as woman have reported conception even after tubes being tied.

Some other causes can be increased stress,thyroid hormone abnormalities,ectopic pregnancy,polyps,endometritis etc.Get a Blood hcg test done to rule out pregnancy.

It would be best to undergo a USG scan to rule out the cause.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation and diagnosis.

Take care!
