    Hi. Since you’ve already had tubal ligation 11 years ago the chances of you being pregnant are almost nil. However you could always rule out a pregnancy by doing a home pregnancy test using the pregnancy kit (urine based test). The issue of scanty menstruation can be caused due to a few reasons such as psychological stress, hormonal imbalance, thyroid abnormalities, PCOD etc. I would suggest waiting a couple more months and de-stressing yourself, which might help the menstruation to return to normal. However if this continues, it is advised to see a gynaecologist to rule out secondary causes. Hope this helps. Take care.
