Hi! I am 44, and I had my tubes tied (cut and burned) over 8 years ago after I had my third child. My periods have been normal up until February 2013, when I started about a week and a half late. I went to my Dr to see what was going on, and she could not find anything abnormal. Hormones were fine, ect... My periods went back to normal for the rest of the year. Normal for me was between 28 to 31 days. But my last period was Nov 11, 2013. I took a pregnancy test when I was a week late in Dec and it was negative. I am now 9 weeks late. I have read a lot about perimenopause and it's symptoms. I am not having hot flashes, or mood swings. My libido has actually gone up since my last period. My question is, has anyone ever heard of or actually know of anyone who has gotten pregnant years after having their tubes tied? I am not sure if I should worry, retest, or go see the Dr? Any advice is appreciated.
*UPDATE* I woke this morning (monday) and have started my period. It would have been 9 weeks late today. I have read somewhere that having your tubes tied can cause early menopause. I am still planning on seeing my Dr again just to make sure. Thanks for all the advice and stories!
