After my 3rd child was born i went 6 weeks later and had a tubal ligation. My period came as usual though i did notice that instead of the normal 6-8 days it went down to like 4-5 days. For 3 years it stayed like that. Then suddenly last month i was 5 days late, bought a pregnancy test but never took it because my period started that same night. It was very light considering how late I was, and only lasted 3 days. barely. Now this month, it was 3 almost 4 days late, and only lasted maybe 48hrs. I'm scared to take the test now because i know its going to be positive, but at the same time everything I've read about pregnancies after a tubal usually means an ectopic pregnancy with LOTS and LOTS of pain, which I've had none of. not even my usual cramps. What the heck????
