Should i Be worried of possibility Of pregnancy. I also had an pelvic ultrasound 2 yrs ago to rule out ovarian cyst and my obgyn asked me if i was sure of having clips on my falopian tubes? She was not able to see the clips during that ultrasound. Could the clips possibly fall off ? Please advice

Thanks for writing to us.
Since your fallopian tubes were clipped, there is a very remote chances of the clips falling out. The delay in your periods is more likely ot be due to a minor hormonal disturbance rather than pregnancy. Please do not worry.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
