Hi Linda.........Life seems a little crazy doesn't it? I have an appointment this afternoon at 4:30. I don't really expect to get a complete answer this afternoon. Too many variables. I also have a history of just agreeing with whatever the doctor's office says. Got me in to trouble when I was pregnant with my son. My husband and I waited 17 years to start a family (by choice) and I got pregnant right away and had a virtually symptom free pregnancy. 10 days post-delivery I was in ICU with CHF brought on by peripartum cardiomyopathy. Was told not to have more kids. I really feel like this is the start of menopause because the alternative would be too grim for me to handle. My poor husband is in deep denial, ha-ha, but I am a little concerned about the possibility of an eptopic pregnancy. I just want all the facts so I can start to deal with the situation whatever it is!! Please keep us updated. Best of luck. (also Linda.....I will be 46 in 13 days!!

Up date....negative pregnancy test. Positive for UTI. Go back in 10 days for recheck and blood work to check hormones, etc. Doc thinks it is menopause.

I had my tubes tied in March of 2004. I always start my period on the day I am supposed to, but somehow this time around I missd it. Is it possible that I could be pregnant and my body just doesn't know it yet? I have taken 2 pregnancy tests and the both came back negative. I started feeling nausea for about 2 days now, please help with any advice or answers. Thank you!

I am 31 I had my tubes tied at age 24. My kids are from my X now my boyfriend and I are looking into have my surgery reversed......But I have been feeling alot of nasea lateley and my perios is 11 days late. I went to my doctor today and they drew my blood for an Hcg test. I will know the answer tomarrow...... I am hoping and praying that it is a positive test.......Cant wait.... But it looks to me on all the research I have done that its very common for women to regret having there tubes tied.... wish me luck all...... : )

Hello ok for all you ladies that actually got pregnant after a tubal, what were your symptoms like? I had mine tied almost 3 yrs ago at age 23. I am late like probably 2 days I took a test it was neg but I wonder if I still might be...anyways just kinda hangin out and waiting but was curious what others experienced!


natalie - January 25

hello everyone, never thought i would be typing in a forum like this - i had a tubal done this past summer (burning the tubes) and i am late 4 days, which is unusual. i am nervous about being pregnant and not sure how much of a risk there is getting pregnant when the tubes are burned - anyone have a similar experience?


Michelle - January 27

I had a tubal done 5 years ago. I have been celibac for about 3-1/2 years. I recently had intercourse and now have been experiencing nausea, vomitting, and tenderness in my b___st. I have had very irregular periods, so I checked my hospital records and because I was only 21 at the time only a 1-inch cut was done to my tubes (no burning). I don't think that they would "heal" back. Any feedback would be great. I am about 4 days late so far on my cycle.

Does anyone have a pregnancy to report after having your tubes tied?


Sandra - January 29

I had my tubes tide in 2003 of January. And I tide them right after I had my baby. I started my period last moth on christmas eve and I usually last five days and only lasted 3 and wasn't very heavy. I haven't started this moth at all,and I'm worried coould I be preganant? I took 3 pregnancy test all were negative. But I heard it's best to get a blood test to determine weither your pregnant. Especially if you tubes are tide.I'm just worried about having a ectopic pregnancy.
