    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I am 27 years old and I had my tubes tied in November of 2008. My periods have always been regular and I've never been late. I am now two weeks late which is very unusual for my body. However nothing has changed with my daily routines. What could cause my period to be late?

    Are you sexually active? As strange as this sounds, have you considered taking a pregnancy test?

    There are cases of tubal ligations failing and pregnancy resulting.

    If the test is negative then you might consider you may simply have not ovulated this month. This happens to most women at least once (and often more than once) during their reproductive lifetime. No particular reason for this but without ovulation there is no menstrual period that cycle.
