I had my tubes tied three years ago after my third son and my last period I had for three days (with spotting three days before. I have been experiencing pain in my lower back and in my stomache, my br___t have swollen up and are sensitive. I haven't been able to sleep well lately. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative but I think it may have been taken too early? Can I be pregnant?

A friend of mines mother had had about 5 or 6 miscarriages and couldnt take the pain of it so she got her tubes tied, shortly after they found out they were pregnant and carried to full term. She is an only child, but one little egg slipped out and granted them what they thought impossible. Howere that was shortly after, three years later i'm not sure. Make an appointment with your doctor?

Hello, I just went through the same thing you are going through right now. I could swear I was pregnant, and was hoping I was, as I regretted having my tubes tied since day one. I had mine done 10 months ago after my third daughter. I had every symtom down to leaking from my b___sts, and was taking tests knowing I was taking them too early. They were all negative. It was all I could think about, but I just got my period, I think it is my period, it is really light and bright and not like my normal periods. I still feel a ball in my uterus and can't sleep on my stomach or sides without propping my legs with a pillow. I have been doing alot of research and symptoms of low progesterone (hormone imbalance) can cause pregnancy symtoms and can happen quite a bit to someone who had their tubes tied. This could be what you are experiencing or not. If you are hoping for a pregnancy, good luck, and I hope your dream comes true, but if you are not and you do get your period, you may want to see your GP or Gyno for a test to check hormone imbalance, it can really screw you up. Of all the research I have been doing on pregnancy after tubal, the chances are 1 in 500 if you had them tied at time of c-section and under 30 yrs. and again after 10 years. Scar tissue can form to allow a tunnel for the egg to pa__s through-after ten years, they can also grow back together, but chances are slim. I didn't realize just how non-permenent a tubal ligation really is til now! Make sure you get yourself checked out because if you are pregnant, the chances are highter for ectopic pregnancy, as the egg may be too large to pa__s through the scar tissue of the tube and into the uterus---this can lead to a rupture and is life threatening!!!!! I know what you are going through right now and I am praying for you! Best of luck! Please update this forum when you find out what is happening! Thanks.
