I’d head to the nearest drugstore and start peeing on a stick (after you get back home)

Between the vastectomy and the tubal, it is extremely unlikely you’re pregnant. But to put your mind at rest, go take a test! You’re certainly late enough that it would tell you.

And even if you’re not pregnant, go see your gyno to make sure there are no other problems that could be causing the delay.

How old are you? There’s a possibility of early onset (or regular onset) menopause.

@RedAngelDreamer:  +1. This is what I was thinking. It sucks, but it happens. And I think I remember reading that getting your tubes tied increases chances of this.

If you don’t want more children, you don’t have to have more children. You have options. But, you NEED to test. Denial won’t help you.

Chances are if his vasectomy and your tubal ligation have worked for years, they are both still working.

Do the test. If it’s negative, you don’t really need to do anything else. Skipping one period

( in and of itself) is not a reason to seek medical attention.

Start a calendar so you can record your cycles and see if you may be in the perimenopausal area. It will be helpful information to share with your doctor if you ever do seek medical attention.

I’d POAS to ease your mind.  NOT taking a test because you’re afraid will not change the results of the test… you just won’t know about the results.  I also read somewhere that most women have a least one annovulatory cycle per year, and while that doesn’t mean most women miss their period during their annov cycle I wouldn’t rule it out.  POAS!  You could also schedule an appointment for bloodwork in case you are early onset menopause… better to know about it and deal with it than get stressed out every time you have a wonky cycle 🙂

@TexasSpringBride:  What’s to be afraid of?  Taking the test won’t make you pregnant!!

And even if you are pregnant, we live in a country (thank god) that give you options. You absolutely do not have to carry a pregnancy to term. But you can’t weigh those options until you know your situation.

Besides, you need to find out whether it’s a pregnancy or not, because if it’s NOT, you absolutely need to get checked out to make sure that there aren’t any issues with tumors, cysts, etc., that might be affecting your periods.

Not trying to be harsh, just to give you a pep talk: GO DO IT!
