  • DEPENDS ON WEATHER YOUR PERIODS ARE NORMALLY 28 DAYS. YOU ARE ONLY 2 WEEKS LATE, COULD TAKE A PREG TEST OR CALL DOCTOR FOR CHECK UP. SOMETIMES STRESS OR ILLNESS CAN MAKE YOU LATE. GOOD LUCK

  • Lots of things (other than pregnancy or illness) can mess with your period. Some of them are stress, change in diet, change in exercise, spending a lot of time around a different woman, and early signs of menopause.

  • Many times women with tubals report changes in the way their cycles cycle. If that is the only thing you are experiencing you are one of the lucky ones. ;)

  • I think it's just your cycle messing with you. Mine does that too, from time to time. I had my tubal 4 years ago this March. Sometimes, I miss the regular 28 day cycle of the pills, but not enough to take them again. :)

  • I know three women who had tubal ligations who had babies after. I would take a preg. test if I were you. One of the women I know got pregnant 6 years after the tubal ligation.

  • It could be as simple as you skipped due to stress, or you could be preggo. You need to find out if you're preggo ASAP though- women who have had a tubal ligation have a larger risk of having an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, which is something that needs to be dealt with quickly.
    I would home test & see what comes up. But if you start having any of these symptoms (scroll down a little), get to the e.r. as quickly as you can.
    Good luck, mama!!
