Hello, and thank you for sharing your questions with the community.  I understand how disconcerting this situation must be for you.  I'd love to give you some insight on the subject.

These are the statics for the different methods of "having your tubes tied."  Five out of 1,000 women who have a tubal ligation get pregnant after 1 year.  Thirteen out of 100 women get pregnant who have tubal implants after 2 years.

These statics show that you do still have a chance of pregnancy even though you have one of these procedures done.

However, regular periods, and stomach flutters can happen for any number of reasons.  If pregnancy is your number one suspicion I suggest you take a pregnancy test.  That is the best way of knowing for sure.

Let us know if you have any more questions.

All the best,
