My last one was about a year ago when my period was late even though I am on the pill.

I had a hernia surgery in 2010 and when they were doing the pre-op stuff they asked me if there was any chance of pregnancy and I said no, with kind of a chuckle and the nurse said that they would like to do a routine pregnancy test just to be 100% sure. I told her that I was 100% sure since I hadn't had a uterus in almost 2 years!

August 20th. And it better be the last one ever. My husband will most definitely be getting a vasectomy after this baby.

My last one was just last Wednesday, as part of the pre-op work for my hysterectomy yesterday. Considering I had a tubal 14 years I didn't think I really needed it but they did it anyway and I'm sure they charged my insurance.

About 2 days ago. Dh was snipped almost 3 years ago, but my body has been crazy...no period for 4 months now. I have had too many IRL friends who have ended up pg after a V or tubes tied, so I have been testing every month. Thankfully, nothing.

Might have to go to the dr. on this one, though, if October is still a no-show.

It's probably a coding error. Call the doctor's office and ask about it.

My last one was 13 years ago before I had DS.

DD had to get one when she was 13 (and had only had about one period at that point) for a medical procedure. Didn't matter that she had zero interest in boys, etc., etc. It was simply required for any "woman" of childbearing age because the chemicals they use are harmful to a fetus. Okay. Fine. Whatever.

My mom got one when she was about 58. This was 24 years after she had her tubes tied. She had an inner ear infection (painless) which was making her uber dizzy and pukey. It was the first thing they checked.

Probably a couple of years ago.

After years of infertility, irregular periods and a surprise pregnancy, my cycle straightened out a couple of months after DH had a vascectomy - go figure. Now I get it like clockwork.

My last one was in May when I went to the Doctor because I had bronchitis and left 5 weeks pregnant. Actually, I walked in pregnant but I had no idea!! Turns out, I had a good bit of wine in April at my 40th birthday party.

24 weeks and due Jan 9!!!!

Vasectomies and tubals are not 100% fool proof. It's just routine and doesn't bother me. They are taking urine for other things as well at the same time.
