Unfortunately, the only way to successfully prevent pregnancy is abstinence. There is always that chance that you will get pregnant, even with a tubal. All it takes is one sliver of the tube to get back together somehow. It happens sometimes. The clamps are the lesser of three evils as far as tubals are concerned. But, a tubal is a tubal, just the same. Did your dr tell you any of the risks of tubals prior to your surgery? What information were you given? Any? Unfortunately, there is a need for improvement in the information respect prior to consenting to tubals. Or, should I say, the lack of information given pre-tubal.
As for the pregnancy worry, home tests are reliable anymore. If you can swing it, buy one and find out for yourself. If you are, it should show up. It may ease the worrying a bit if you do one. Or, sometimes check at your local county health department. They do pregnancy testing, I believe. Sometimes we have to do whatever it takes to get our questions answered.
Some of your troubles MAY be related to the tubal. Tubals can mess your hormones up, causing various menstrual complications.
Dr. Vicki- What do you think?
Dr. Vicki is the dr that comes and answers our questions here on this MB. She is a good lady.
What hormones did they check two months ago? Just the ones to check for pregnancy? Do you know?
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Cheryl :o)

CPTwomen members have testified in front of the IL and CA Court, the IL Gov. Task Force, the Sunset Review Committee, (Senator Liz Figueroa), NOW, and more. What occurred has been made a matter of public record. The CPTwomen are making public the issues which millions of other women have faced in silence. Issues such as women are not informed at the time of their tubal ligation that there is a risk of hormonal imbalance occurring. For the CPTwomen to continue its mission to move this issue to the forefront of government, we must ask for a small contribution/subscription fee from all those who wish to communicate with us and participate at the Coalition's Bulletin Board
