I got my tubes tied last year on Jan 24th 2014. I have always had my period evry month since then around the end of each month. Now all of a sudden I haven't seen a period since July 2015. I have cramps around bout the time my period should come on but nothing. I have lower back aches as well. I took a HPT and it showed up negative. What could be wrong?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to our community for a possible reason that you have not had a period since July.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of hormones. Any upset or change in hormone levels will cause menstrual cycle irregularities. Pregnancy is the first that comes to everyone's mind. But, if you tested properly, then the negative test result rules that out.

In a search to find an answer for you, I came upon information regarding post-tubal -ligation syndrome.

"Although researchers, the medical literature, and physicians say there aren't any hormone changes after a tubal ligation, many physicians aren't convinced that there isn't some impact on a woman's hormones after the surgery. They have seen too many women who note menstrual changes after having undergone a tubal ligation to be mere coincidence. These hormone changes have been called the "post-tubal-ligation syndrome."

"Post tubal ligation syndrome is often the result of a rapid decline of estrogen/progesterone hormone levels caused by the blood supply being damaged to the ovaries during the TL surgery. Depending on the damage to the veins and capillaries, blood volume to the ovaries may slightly decrease or can be eliminated completely which is called isolated ovarian syndrome (common with hysterectomy operations). Many of the symptoms of PTS are associated with menopause, hormone shock, or of having an estrogen/progesterone imbalance."

Anonymous, please consult your gynecologist, who is your best resource.
