I am 36 and I had my tubes tied in August of 2009. My husband has also had a vasectomy. I haven't had a period since May 6. Any idea of what is going on?

Hi Anon
Thanks for your post!

I think we can safely rule pregnancy out so there may be something hormonal going on. Our cycles can change in our 40s, or even as early as our late 30s.

Stress can also be a factor.

You are only a couple of weeks late as of now. See what the next month brings and if you still don't have a period, talk to your doctor.
