Hi Katie!

Thanks for your question! Getting pregnant after a tubal ligation is rare (roughly less than one percent to one half of one percent) but it can happen.

However, a negative pregnancy test, when taken correctly, is as effective as a test in your doctor's office. So take it for what it is - a negative.

If you are in any kind of pain however, make sure you contact your doctor as soon as possible.

There many be other reasons for skipping a period - stress, illness, perimenopause (how old are you?) or just a random skip that can happen to a woman for no known reason.

Keep an eye on how you're feeling but your appointment is fairly soon - will you let us know how your doctor visit goes?
