I had a tubal ligation in 2012. I keep track of my period, because of past issues with irregularity (they've been regular for the past few months). Anyway, my last period ended on the 31st of October. My husband and I had sex on the 4th and 9th of November (checked the calendar after this next part). On the 10th, I wiped and noticed a very small amount of light pink spotting on the toilet paper. For the next few hours, I would have this same spotting, but only when I wiped. On the 11th, I noticed a brownish spotting, but again only when I wiped and it only lasted a few hours. Also on the 11th, I had a weird pinching/tugging sensation in my lower abdomen on the right side and I also started getting pain in my lower back. I have been experiencing this sensation on and off since then, and I've also been having mild cramps. Since the first day of spotting, I have been experiencing nausea throughout the day and I've been having mild headaches every day that go away and come back throughout the day. My breasts are tender, but not too sore, and I've also been having mild constipation. I've also noticed that my lower avdomen feels tight and my pants are getting snug. According to my period tracker app (which has been accurate so far), I'm due for my period on the 20th. I took a test today and it came back negative, which I kind of expected since my period is a week away (the wait was killing me lol). I've been pregnant before, so these symptoms seem familiar. Is there a possibility even though I've had my tubes tied, or am I looking into this too much? Should I wait until I miss my period, or can I test before then? Anyone been through this before? Kind of going crazy here lol.

One of my friends fell pregnant after having her tubes tied but she was told there is a tiny risk of falling pregnant. You know yourself from experience how you feel but definitely wait until the 20th. I know it’s hard though x

I've been in a group on here before, and two of the ladies in there were pregnant and had tubes tied. It's definitely possible. The symptoms seem accurate too. Keep us posted! I know how hard it is waiting to test lol

Thank you for the replies! 😊

I wanted to give and update:
I took a test yesterday and today. Both were negative, but no sign of my period. I'm still experiencing pregnancy symptoms, and they are getting stronger (the nausea has now led to vomitting), and the weird cravings have started. I know it could still take a little while for a hpt to come back positive, so I'm going to keep testing as long as my period is MIA. I've also been researching pregnancies after tubal ligation, and I know that I'm at a higher risk for ectopic pregnancy and that can lead to a false negative.
We obviously weren't planning on more kids but now that it might happen again, I'm getting excited. I've been a bundle of emotions, stressed /excited/nervous/worried/scared/confused, and I don't know what to really think at this point. I will post as soon as I know what's going on for sure.
Thanks again for replying and letting me vent!
