Hello and thank you in advance to all who try to help =)

I had my tubes tied after my last pregnancy (17 months ago) and since then I have not paid much attention to what day of the month my period starts. I do know I had my period in February (my guess is I started on the 14th or 21st - it was a Sat. and towards the later part of the month) and it's now going on April and I have not had a period. I know it's very unlikely that I could get pregnant after having my tubes tied BUT I conceived my three boys extremely easily. I'm just a fertile mertile ;) So, I do not doubt my bodies ability to get pregnant. I did take a pregnancy test last thursday (March 26) and it was negative. I don't currently have health insurance, if I did I would just make an appt to see my Doctor. What are your thoughts? Think I could be pregnant? FYI my periods are never late. If anything they come early and they last abour 7-8 days (ugh!!).

Thanks!!

P.S. If I were indeed pregnant would I get a positive pregnancy test if it was an ectopic pregnancy?

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. You need to be evaluated by your physician. These symptoms are not normal.

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. Did you not get a period in the month of September? Since you posted on October 7, have you gotten your period?

Contact your gynecologist. No period since August and a negative pregnancy test must be evaluated by the physician who performed the ligation procedure.

Regards,
Maryann

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. By now, two weeks after your posting, are you still having cramps? Since you had your period, I do not think you could be pregnant.

Hello Anonymous,

If your periods are normally regular, missing one is something to check out. Take a home pregnancy test.
