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?

I had a period in July and missed all of august to now still no menstrual. I recently been feeling pressure and tenderness in my lower sides and I'm bloated bad but I feel we may be stressed because it will cause symptoms like this so I'm going to wait and if nothing happens by Monday I'm going to see if I have cyst that could cause this cause pregnancy I truly rule out tubes been tied 9 years

I am 37 had my tubes tied 6 years now periods are always regular but this month July 16 I started for a day and a half it stopped for one day then started the next day for half a day, stopped for three days then had some spotting for a few hours then it stopped not sure why. Like I said always regular always on time. It takes forever to get in to my doctor so was just trying to figure out why.my period would be like this all of a sudden. Thanks

Hello Anon

Take a pregnancy test as a precaution. If it's negative, talk to your doctor about your symptoms.
Best,

Hello Anonymous,

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of hormones. My guess is there is an upset that caused the flow to be different.

Keep us updated once you see your gynecologist.
