6 years ago I got my tubes tied.

User Profile
I am 34 years old and I have 4 children. After my last child 6 years ago I got my tubes tied. I just started on some blood pressure pills recently. About a week ago I started getting a lot of symptoms. I am very hungry than usual, I am craving foods with tomato sauce (any sauces that are red: salsa, marinara, food with lots of ketchup and mustard). I don't usually crave anything, not this bad anyway. I have been nauseated lately.I have been eating a lot more than usual, too. My period comes at different times; never too normal, but lasts about 4 days. I'm due any day now to get it. Last night I felt so sick and nauseous I felt that if I didn't eat anything right away I was going to vomit. Do you think I could be pregnant or are these signs of my period coming or related to my blood pressure medicine?

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Contraceptive failure after 6 years of tubal ligation is pretty unlikely though not impossible. So, do take a pregnancy test and see. If this is negative, then please consult your gynecologist regarding this. It could be a thyroid issue or polycystic ovary or a hormonal issue. It is less likely to be the side effect of your BP medication, but there is no harm in asking your doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
