I am 30 y/o. I had a tubal ligation done Jan 2016. I had no issues. Period is usually at the end of the month,lasts 4 days. That hasn't changed up until Dec. began again 12/29- 13/31, again 02/27-03/01, and again 03/28 -03/29, but the past 1 1/2 wks. I've become extremely tired, headaches, nipples tingle, stomach is bloated but per scale have not gained weight. Have to pee more and I feel irritable. I took a test 4 days ago. It was neg. I know chances are small, but its just strange to me that I have all those symptoms together. What could it be? Could I be pregnant?

Hi, I am almost 21 just last week I started spotting I spotted for 3 days then the 4 day I had very heavy bleeding it only lasted for 2 days then it just stopped. I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative I took and ovulation test and it was positive for ovulation. I've been googling why I've been spotting but I keep getting implantation bleeding but I still can't seem to figure out why I had heavy bleeding. I currently have a 2 1/2 year old. And I am ready for another baby. What can this be from I am calling tomorrow to schedule an appointment for Thursday

Hi, everyone! I am 41 years old. I had a tubal ligation (clamps and cut) on 5-16-2001. I am currently 2 months late for my period. My last period was some time in August. Yesterday I thought I was starting but, it was very faint light blood when wiping and this morning it's barely there but it's brown blood. Has anyone gotten pregnant here after a tubal ligation?? And if so, did you have anything similar to what I just explained. I have taken a couple HPT but they were negative. I feel pregnant; tired, full breast feeling, low energy. I have 3 older children and never had morning sickness so, I haven't had any vomiting. Sometimes I feel nausea but, pass it off as just being hungry. Thanks for reading :-)
