I'm sorry to hear you're going through this but I am going to tell you what you don't want to hear-- go to the doctor. Your tubes being tied is not a 100% guarantee that you may not be pregnant or perhaps miscarrying due to poor implantation. Remember that your tubes are tied but you are still ovulating. Now, if what you have had is a tubal ligation, which involves cutting and burning of the tubes-- then chances are you are not pregnant but still need to be seen by a doctor for proper diagnosis.

How long ago did you get your tubes tied? Any side effects after? Please keep us posted.

Thanks alot rosa. Ive had my tubes tied for 3 years. The side effects are irregular cycle, extreme menstrual pain, and terrible headaches around that time. I only had my tubes tied not a tubal. I wish I never would have had the procedure done. Its more pain than gain! I have made a doctors apt. and will be going this coming tuesday. I will keep you posted. Thank you so much again rosa for your help. You'll hear from me soon.

So glad you have a doctor's appointment. Try to not worry so horribly much. It's good to find out what's going on so you can get it taken care of. We'll be so interested to see what you find out. Hang in there.
