I had a tubal ligation done in 2002 same month, day and year that i had my daughter which wad eleven years ago...my obgyn said that my tubal lugation was only cut and assured me tgat i wont bevome pregnant. But this month january 2014 my menstrual period was only three days like every month after i had my daughter and the tubal ligation done but the difference is that this month it wasnt heavy like usually is monthly i had a slight pain on my left lower back side and left stomache side...and this past month ive been feeling tingling down my legs and after my menstrual this month i was nauseas twice in one day and the following day i was feeling a slight pain on my left side and a funny feeling in my stomache. I sleep alot...is it possible i can be pregnant?

Jodi is correct. Neither of you are in a doctor's office, you're on an internet forum. Since every single woman is different, the symptoms you have could be pregnancy, but they could be gas buildup.

The only way to tell, no matter what, is if you see a doctor and have a confirmed test.

And, Marisol, your doctor should have told you that NO BC procedure is 100% effective. Tubal ligations fail about 1 in 300.

Please get yourself checked asap..i had a ectopic pregnacy and the symtoms your are telling us you have are very simul to the ones i had..with this been said having tubals increase the chances of ectopic pregnacies..i did not hav a tubal at the time..but i do now.and im very aware that its possible to become pregnant as explained to me by my gyn..only the first yr is 99.999% and each yr after the % decreases and after five yrs even more so...no bc is 100% unless you abstain from sex.

Marisol, I only mixed up the posts when I made my second response. Her post wasn't showing when I made my first comment.

Well, she was wrong, Marisol. There's always a chance of pregnancy, whether with a tubal procedure, a vasectomy, or barrier methods of bc. The only guaranteed pregnancy protection is abstinence.

I am not misunderstanding your questions - you both want to know if these symptoms mean you are pregnant. The fact is, this is the internet, not a pregnancy test. No-one here can tell you if you are pregnant. is it possible? yes! Every woman experiences different symptoms for pregnancy, and also different symptoms for each different pregnancy. I can't tell you whether you are pregnant or not. If you have done a test and it is still negative, go to your doctor. As I said in my original post, even if you are not pregnant, you should see your doctor, because changes in a menstrual cycle, can be symptoms of something else. We can't diagnose you on the internet.

Oh, oops, my bad :) It was just the way your post was written, I mistook it as the OP's follow up post :) Have you been to see your doctor for a blood test?

Sorry, you've been trying to get pregnant for 3 years? Without a tubal reversal?

Your obgyn should have told you that the tubal ligation failure rate is one in 300. So yes, it is possible. However, having said that, how old are you? It could also be many other things - eg. you could be pre menpausal, or you could have an ovarian cyst. Either way, you should consider getting it checked out. If you ARE pregnant, you are at higher risk of ectopic pregnancy, so it is important to identify it early.

Pls I need a reply on this. I kept seeing my monthly period for like 3 months now at the ususal days that last for 3 days,the first month I had some cramps, the second month I had sligth sore breast and some nausea but didn't throw up and this month I had a slight pain at the right side of my lower stomach and had a period the next day which lasted only 2 days.I still feel some movements in my stomach.I sleep a lot and have gained some weight. Did a home test and it came back negative.These signs are strange to me. I'm I pregnant? I'v been trying for 3years now.
