Hello So I had my last baby (#4) last August. I had a tubal ligation the next day. I did have complications w/ infection and also found out 3 weeks later (they put me on antibiotics for the infection) that I had Clostridium difficile. My case was severe as my intestinal tract was already shutting down. I thought I just had food poisoning. Anyway because of all that I had to stop bf after 3 weeks. I couldn't nurse for 2 weeks and between my body going through all that and my lil girl getting used to the bottle, it didn't work out when I tried nursing again. So fast fwd, for the last 6+ months my cycles have been 31 days on the clock. Well today I'm on cd 32 and nothing. For the last few weeks I've had off and on mild cramping, tingly and on fire boobs, off and on as well. At first I thought it was af coming because I had no reason to think otherwise. I took a test in the afternoon on cd 30 and it was negative so I figured again af would show. Still nothing.. no spotting, nothing. I've been reading up on the signs of ectopic and I have none of those... I called my OB and they said that if I didn't start by the end of this week I'd need to go in. How likely is it that I could REALLY be pregnant? you'd think a hpt would have shown up the other day, but maybe it didn't because I took it in the afternoon? I've read the "statistics", I'm just going STIR crazy here waiting to start.. my brain hurts, LOL! I'm wondering if my tube(s) healed themselves because as far as I know they were just tied and cut. I thought having a TL would cure the not having to wonder if I'm pregnant.. and the worst part is, now that I'm late and it is apparently a possibility I'm hoping I am and that if I am it has implanted in my uterus, not any place else.. HELP!?!?!?

Thanks for reading!
Have a BLESSED day!!

Im gonna say unlikely you are pregnant. Ive seen numerous stories of those who got pregnant after a tubal but it always seems to happen a couple years down the road if it does.

I wish I knew what was going on with you but Ive never experienced that. My cycle is every 24 days and a bit annoying since my tubal but not so I am worried.

I have heard of some starting perimenopause after a tubal(not sure how long after tho). Maybe that is something to look into??

Anywho, sorry Im not much help. Hope you find an answer and WELCOME to this board!!!!

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

First of all, welcome! Glad you joined us
I'm sorry you're being stressed! I would, also, say it's unlikely that you're pregnant. It CAN happen, though... but..
I've had several times where I thought I was pregnant, and my husband had a vasectomy a few years ago. But, every once in awhile I'm a smidge late (and my cycles are regular, as yours are).. and then I get it into my head, and I almost tend to create symtoms! Our bodies and minds can totally do that.

Good luck!

it is pretty unlikely you're pregnant - but we are programmed to freak out if AF is late, so I think it's just natural to wonder!

If you are REALLY concerned, I would go to your doctor & get a blood test done, it's the fastest way to get a reliable answer.

Also, on the off chance you are pregnant - not ALL ectopic pregnancies are accompanied by symptoms (or symptoms of pain anyway).. I had one in 2007 & if I hadn't had blood tests & u/s, would have had no idea that I was pregnant, nor that it was ectopic..
