Late Period + Low sex drive + pain

Long time lurker, first time poster, etc etc. You might've seen me commenting on your post lately though. :)

Anyway. I went off HBC [I was on Microgestin FE 1/30] in mid-November [I had a tubal ligation], and had my initial period as expected. However... I have missed what should have been my latest. I'm now three plus weeks overdue, and while I really, really don't think it's pregnancy [again, tubal ligation], I'm starting to get concerned over what it might be.

I've done as much research as I can about coming off of hormonal birth control, but everything is ... rather vague and not much help. I do have PCOS, but it had been relatively under control, at least until I went off the pills. Since then I have experienced severe pain in both lower left and lower right abdominal quadrants. It is not constant but comes and goes randomly.

In addition to being significantly late, I also seem to have near completely lost my sex drive. Yes, I still like having sex... once we get started, but it takes a lot of effort to get going and I don't really "want" it until we're in the middle of it. That is also something completely new - I'm not known for having a non-existent sex drive, anything but. I'm also not interested in participating in my ... errr, "usual" BDSM activities.

Basically... does anyone have any ideas? Places to start? I'm pretty sure I will be calling Planned Parenthood tomorrow for an appointment, but I don't even know what to expect at this point, or if that's even the best place to start.
