Pregnancy Tests
Tubal Ligation

What could be the cause of 3 months of missed periods if you had a tubal ligation 2 years ago and 2 pregnancy tests within the last 2 months were negative?

Periods can be missed for a variety of reasons besides pregnancy. Some women just have irregular periods. Extreme stress can cause periods to temporarily stop. Women who have very low body fat like ballerinas often stop menstruating. Female athletes, especially those who rigorously train for long-distance events like triathlons or marathons often stop menstruating. Menopause or peri-menopause can begin as early as your 20s and cause light or missed periods. Either way, if your periods have been regular in the past and now you've missed three, I would see an ob/gyn.

A home pregnancy test is not as reliable as a test given by a doctor. But there are other possible reasons for missed periods, too. It might be time to check up on things.

Do you have any symptoms of pregnancy other than missed periods? I would recommend getting a blood test from your doctor to ensure accuracy.

You can be sure that you are not pregnant as all three tests were negative.

Even though tubal ligation is an extremely effective method of birth control with a less than 1% failure rate, there is still a chance of pregnancy with any birth control method. Missing 3 periods is definitely an indication for taking a pregnancy test. The chance of an ectopic pregnancy is much higher after a tubal ligation but carrying a normal pregnancy is still possible.

yes a negative pregnancy test can be a false negative so get checked out or take an ultrasound

Yes it is common, especially if you already had that issue before.

Yes. In fact, my second child came about the same way. I missed several periods and still negative on pregnancy test. Be sure! Get a blood test from a doctor! During first weeks of pregnancy, home pregnancy tests don't always work. Also look for other signs, naseau, dizziness, fatigue. With my first pregnancy, I missed three periods and still was negative on test, but I also was unable to run without becoming very tired(strange for me - a 20K a week runner)-The doctor's blood test was positive! Good LUCK:)

I am having the exact same problem and I already took two pregnancy tests, both negative.

Missing a period has many causes besides pregnancy. Many women (especially adolescents) have irregular periods to begin with. Stress, illness, and poor diet can also cause missed periods. See your doctor if this continues. One missed period is not cause for panic.

I had a tubal ligation a year ago after ther birth of my son and all my periods were normal upon until now, i missed to menustral periods, could this be a sign of cnacer?

The most common reason for a missed period is pregnancy.

it's possible to be pregnant with a negative pregnancy test. it can be a fault negative.

Take a pregnancy test. If the result is negative, go and see the doctor, because it is important to find out why you are missing your period

how old are you and how much do you weigh? The body weight / fat percentage can affect periods

Hi, Not all missed periods are caused by pregnancy. A lot of missed periods that are not caused by pregnancy are usually caused by irregular periods, stress, stopping the pill or hormonal imbalance. Best thing to do is see your doctor and have a blood test.

pregnancy test is done if a woman missed her periods.

not most of the time it is rare ide see a doctor if i were you............

i am in the same boat, i went to the doc's office today and got a negative result for pregnancy, dunno y i m NT gtting my periods.

possibly pregnancy or you have something health related...

Vomiting and missed periods are the signs of pregnancy within 2 weeks.
