Pregnancy, thyroid problem or something else?

I Have my tubes tide. Haven't had a period or even spotting for 6 weeks and 5 days. Negative home pregnancy test. Headaches. A little cramping. Could it be tubal pregnancy or pregnancy in general still or something entirely different?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us for advice.

If you tested properly, with a negative result, you can assume that you are not pregnant. With both Fallopian tubes tied, a normal pregnancy is only likely with recanalization. This occurs when the ends of the fallopian tube regenerates and form slit-like spaces and pouches or the ends of the tubes meet and re-establish the patency of the tube.

With an ectopic pregnancy, you would still get a positive pregnancy test result.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of hormones. I suspect an imbalance and with blood tests this can be confirmed. Please contact your gynecologist as soon as possible.
