Menopause is diagnosed if a woman does not menstruate for complete 1 year,so how can she have menopause on jan'13. Secondly chances of pregnancy after tubectomy surgery is 2% and of these 40%are ectopic. Actually best birth control method is one which prevents ovulation so that there is no chance of pregnancy at all and that is with pills but all have there own pros and cons so there is no ideal contraceptive method as yet.
