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 Anon

If your period is late, take a test to rule pregnancy out.

If it's negative, you may be peri-menopausal which is the time we see changes in our body as our fertility levels begin to fade.

I'm a week late for my period. My tubes have been tied for 8yrs. I usually have signs when I'm about to start, I haven't had any. How long do I need to wait before I go to my PCP to see y I haven't had my period?

Has anyone ever had a healthy baby after tubal ligation?

I am 27, I had my tubes tied March 19th, 2015. The same day I had my son. Mu period have been like clock work, every 28days lasting 3-4days each cycle. Now.. I'm 4days late. No cramping, just a few twinges on my right side. I'm overly exhausted, my breasts are a tad sore, and feel queasy from time to time. If I had insurance id skip the worry and just go to the doctor. But that's not simple. I think I'm gonna buy a cheap test at the dollar store tomorrow if I haven't started by then, just to kinda clear my mind. Has anyone become pregnant with their tines tied? If so, What happened? If I happen to be pregnant, I won't be entirely upset. I love kids, but I would probably be totally shocked!!

Hello Anon

If you are two weeks late, take a test. Why are you waiting? It would be accurate by now.
