LADIES OUT THERE, PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR OPINION, IM SO DESPERATE FOR SOME SUPPORT.
IS THIS POSSIBLE?? HERE IS MY STORY GIRLS, ON FEB. 20TH I HAD MY SECOND CHILD AT THE AGE OF 24. I ASKED MY DOCTOR THAT I WANTED TO BE "FIXED, NO MORE BABIES" I ASKED HIM TO CUT, BURN OR REMOVE THE TUBES SO I NEVER HAVE BABIES AGAIN. THE DOCTOR SAID TO ME, "BUT YOU ARE SO YOUNG AND YOU ONLY HAVE 2 CHILDREN?? ARE YOU SURE?" I IMMEDIATELY SAID "YES!" I TOLD THE DOCTOR "UNLESS IF I GET PREGNANT YOU WILL SUPPORT THE CHILD" HE QUICKLY SCHEDULED ME A THE IN APRIL TO GO IN FOR SURGERY. HE SAID HE'D GIVE ME TIME TO HEAL FROM MY C-SECTION I JUST HAD AND THINK ABOUT MY DECISION. OF COURSE I MADE MY APPOINTMENT AND WENT IN FOR SURGERY... HERE I AM 7 YEARS LATER AND I'M LATE WITH MY PERIOD 3 WEEKS.. TERRIFIED TO BUY A PREGNANCY TEST. HERE ARE MY SYMPTOMS : EXTREMELY TIRED, SLEEPY, UNABLE TO LOSE WEIGHT, GAINING WEIGHT, ALWAYS THIRSTY AND HUNGRY. PLEASE SOMEONE GIVE ME YOUR INPUT.

Eliza, one in 300 tubal ligations fail. So yes, it is possible. Go and get it checked out, because 12% of all pregnancies following a tubal ligation also end in an ectopic pregnancy which can be life threatening if not attended to.

WELL OF COURSE YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING OR TAKE A TEST FOR ME.. I KNOW WHEN DEALING WITH HEATH ISSUES IT'S OBVIOUS TO SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION.
THIS POST WAS FOR THOSE THAT MAY HAVE GONE THROUGH A SIMILAR SITUATION AND HAD AN INPUT ON THE TOPIC.

I don't know what you want us to do. We can't do the test for you. You need to see your doctor, get tested and then discuss your options.
If you're not pregnant then your doctor will do other tests to find out what is going on.
Just a side note though, it's best no to type in all capitals because it looks like you are shouting.

ITS BEEN 7 YEARS SINCE I HAD MY TUBAL. I READ THAT YOU ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE YOUR TUBAL CHECKED OUT 5 YEARS AFTER SURGERY TO MAKE SURE THE TUBES HAVE NOT GROWN BACK.
I AM JUST TERRIFIED. BECAUSE I'VE ALSO READ THAT YOU CAN BE PREGNANCY TEST CAN TEST NEGATIVE AFTER A TUBAL....

7 years or months?
Regardless, we don't have any idea, you either need to do a test or see your doctor.

ETA: Sorry, I just read the title. You need to do a test.
