    Okay so Im already a mother of 3, with my tubes tied. Recently I was thinking how much I actually regret doing it....

    Well .....

    Here I sit with no AF and its over a week late, I know its a good chance Im jsut stressed or whatever,but Ive never ever was late on a period unless I was preggo...but let me say Ive had my tubes tied for 3yrs ,still to new for their to be complications or mishaps....or so Ive read...right?

    Im not going to take a test im going to wait til after Mon...and then go to the dr's ....If I am it wont be a good turnout anyways,as it will probably not be a viable pregnancy...and require surgery...

    Ugh...always something with me.....

    More of a "soft" vent than question...thanks for all who follow

    Why not just take a test? I used to buy them for $1 at Dollar Tree and pee to my heart's content.

    It will make you stop wondering and give you some peace of mind, if nothing else. ((((HUGS))))

    I have an aunt who had her tubes tied and her husband had a vasectomy and they STILL had a baby. Eeeeek! (Of course that was in the 60s so who knows).

    OH GOSH!!!!

    I think Im saying im not going to buy a test cause I dont want to if by some wild and crazy chance I am...I want to have an immediate plan right away if I have to have surgery...Id probably have a complete panic attack if I am...SERIOUSLY..I SHOULD BE IN A MEDICAL OFFICE WHEN THAT HAPPENS..LOL

    Seriously im going to buy on when I get off and the dollar tree ones are the only ones Ive ever used as well...

    Thanks Steph...

    Please Please Please be good news!!!!!!!

    P.s if my tubes werent tied id be happy...but because of that these situations usually end up not so good.. ;O(

    Well I hope you take a test just for peace of mind. (BTW this is really making me nervous too, since that's the plan for us whenever we have the next baby, me getting my tubes tied right after) I can't imagine it reversing on its own and me turning out to be Mrs. Duggar lol cuz I just keep popping out kids lol. ( I would proly start using birth control again after it happened the first time lol) I hope you can find out what is causing your missed period. GL

    Thanks for the replies ladies.

    I'ts now day 8 with no sign of a period or my normal syptoms...and yesterday I also noticed (dont know if its relivant to this)that I have this weird sensation round my left elbow. Several times yesterday I kept thinking a bug or something must be crawling on my arm,cause it felt like that kind of sensation,but nothing was ever happened all night and still happenning this morning...VERY WEIRD...The period thing ,im handling that by getting a dollar test tonight...whatever the results im going to make a Dr's appt. Also for the elbow thing if it persist.

    Thanks All..
