Can tubal ligation cause missed periods?
Sterilization does not impact your menstrual cycle. If you had irregular periods before using any type of birth control, you will likely have irregular periods again after sterilization. Ask your doctor how long you should wait after the procedure before having sex.
Can you conceive 3 months after tubal?
Though rare, it is possible to become pregnant after tubal ligation. Usually, this occurs if the fallopian tubes have grown back together over time. In some cases, pregnancy is possible because the surgeon performed the procedure incorrectly.
Why am I discharging but no period?
Cramps and white discharge without a period can sometimes be a sign of pregnancy. Other possible causes include pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, and an infection. Vaginal discharge is normal, and it typically changes texture and color throughout the menstrual cycle.
Will a pregnancy test work if your tubes are tied?
If the test is left beyond the recommended set time, this could produce a false test result. If you had a tubal ligation (i.e. tubes tied), are experiencing pregnancy-like symptoms, and test negative on a pregnancy test, contact your medical doctor to assess for causes unrelated to pregnancy.
How long do you have to be out of work for a tubal ligation?
For laparoscopic surgery, you will probably need to take 2 to 7 days off work. For mini-laparotomy, you will probably need to take 1 to 2 weeks off work. It depends on the type of work you do and how you feel. Ask your doctor when it is okay for you to have sex.

You contracted pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). As the infection spreads to the cells of the uterus, it can lead to problems with menstruation. The Office on Women’s Health lists irregular menstrual cycles (like late periods) as one of the symptoms of PID.
Why do I feel pregnant but test negative?
