Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query,If you have undergone tubal ligation already then there are no chances of pregnancy at all as the failure rates are as less as 0.03%.The likely causes of your symptoms is a premenstrual syndromic complex which can start a week prior to the onset of menses and may last even after 2-3 days of ending of menses. This includes symptoms like early pregnancy symptoms namely nausea, vomiting, headache, mood swings, sore breasts, distaste, lower abdominal mild cramps. These shall indicate that your menses are likely to occur in next few days and symptoms can be allayed with antispasmodics or NSAIDS or even hot water fomentation thrice a day is often remedial.I hope I have answered your query in detail,Wishing you good health,Regards
