    I'm looking for some help here...I hope I'm just over reactting, but here is the question.

    I am soon to be 39 years old and almost 19 months ago, I had our second daughter and at that time, I had a tubal done. It is now 32 day since my last period. Should I be concerned about pregnancy? My periods usually last anywhere from 21 to 28 days.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    While tubal ligation is considered to be permanent sterilization, there are cases of this failing (the failure rate varies with the specific method).

    If you are concerned regarding pregnancy, taking a pregnancy test should provide excellent information regarding this concern.
