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.

If you have a tubal ligation done nine months ago and missed three periods and do not use protection with your partner is there a possibility of having a tubal pregnancy or regular pregnancy?

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.

Can you still be pregnant if you've missed 2 periods but had a negative pregnancy test?

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:)
