Have tender breasts, short period. Had c section, had tubes tied. Help?

Hello I am 27 and I got my tubes tied 2 1/2 years ago during my c section. Last month my what is normally a long and heavy cycle was very light and only 3 days. So that grabbed my attention. Now I am 4 days from my cycle this month and my only sign of PMS is very heavy tender breast . I m kinda worried could the short period mean I m pregnant? I assume no bc I did still have a period . But I can t help but worry. Could I be pregnant and would a hpt even detect a pregnancy after a tubal?

Thanks for the query.
As you underwent tubectomy there is less chance for pregnancy. But very rarely tubectomy failure may occur.
Yes, hpt can detect pregnancy even after tubectomy, as it detects raised beta hcg levels.
So you better go for urine pregnancy test.
If test comes negative, you consult gynecologist once and get examined to find out the possible cause for your menstrual abnormality and take treatment accordingly.

Take care.
