I'm 20 days late and have my tubes clamped, should I go ahead and take a pregnancy test now or wait untill the 1st of Nov?

I have never missed a period except when I was pregnant.

  • Twenty days late is way beyond what it would take to get a positive. Test momma!

  • I would go ahead and test. You can get a test for $1 at Dollar Tree, so it doesn't have to cost much at all and will hopefully help put your mind to ease.

  • I would test, that way you have a jump start if you need to take any action with your doctor. Then if you are negative, either test again in another week or call your doctor. It could be something other than pregnancy causing your absence of period and you may want to get checked out.

  • Might as well take the test, that way you will know! My girlfriend got PG after a tubal ligation! If your not, then you need to find out what is wrong, the other thing is alot of times, you could have an etopic pregnancy, one in your tubes, so take it and find out, let us know the results--Good luck!
