Question Late Period,Severe Cramping & Tubes Are Tied

Hi! I am 33yrs old & had a tubal ligation about 20mos ago after the birth of my 3rd child. So, I shouldn't be pregnant, though I know that it's not unheard of.
My period is about a week late & I've been having alot of moderate to severe cramping for the last 2 weeks. My cycle has been pretty much like perfect clockwork since about 4mos after my sons birth & the tubal ligation. It's kind of odd for me to be late like this.
It is normal for me to have bad PMS symptoms - TERRIBLE cramps, headaches, grouchiness. The PMS came right on schedule this month, but the cramps have been alot worse than usual. I've also been more grouchy & emotionally funky than my norm. My poor husband is not a happy camper either, LOL!
This morning when I went to the bathroom there was a teeny bit of some very light pink clumpy discharge. I often get a bit of that just before I start but not as light pink as this was.
I shouldn't be pregnant, but like I said, I know it can happen. A few years ago a friend of mine had a tubal pregnancy even though her tubes were tied 5yrs prior. She said that her symptoms were very much like what mine are now.
Anyone have any ideas of whats up? I know there's always a chance that my body is just being funky... it wouldn't be the 1st time! My hubby thinks that if I have not started by Monday I should go see the doc. But I just don't know! Should I wait it out a little longer or go ahead and make an appointment? Any advice would be great! Thanks in advance!

Re: Late Period,Severe Cramping & Tubes Are Tied

hi Shotstuff77!

I have the same experience.. except my tubes aren't tied? I am waiting for two ultrasounds to determine if I have cysts or fibroids etc.. I have had the most crampy spotting for the last month on and off all light pink and I am almost 8 months post partum... wasn't sure if this is normal ( I am breastfeeding still but not exclusively)? Have you contacted your doctor yet and did you get you period?? I have searched online to see of anyone else has had this.. also I feel very sick and have 3rd trimester symptoms although blood test confirm I am not pregnant? I feel urge to urinate, nauseous and breast tenderness...this is so weird did you expereince any of this and did you get in contact with your doctor???

If you are even a bit concerned about a tubal pregnancy, you should go get checked out asap. not trying to scare you but they can cause serious problems. Hope everything turns out good for you!
