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 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 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.

Hello, so for the months of May, June and July I have had what I think is my period. It only lasts maybe a day and is light last month (June) it came on the 11th this month (July) it came on the 8th which is earlier. I used to be right on time all the time. Certain smells now get to me and make me nauseous and I get dizzy sometimes and headaches. The bottom part of my stomach is loose and flabby but my upper stomach is hard and sometimes I have really bad pain in my lower back and or lower stomach. I'm 39 years old and had a tubal in May of 2005. Think I need to be worried and take a pregnancy test or maybe just my body changing with my age? Thank you

Hello Anonymous,

Both are possibilities. Start by taking a home pregnancy test. Test in the morning.

At age 39, you may be staring perimenopause early.

I had my tubes tied 8.5 years ago. My period is 4 months late. My tummy is swelling and I chalked it up to weight gain. I've been having heartburn in the late afternoon/ evening. Two home tests and a dr pee test all show negative. I'm 35 and they won't do a blood test until I have a pap however they can't get me in until November.

Hello Anonymous,

All that I can suggest is visiting a woman's health clinic and see if you can have a blood pregnancy test done there.

Hello Anonymous,

I would repeat the test. Wait another three days. Test in the morning and use the first urine of the day. Then call and speak with your gynecologist.

Regards,
