Hello,

A tubal occlusion will NOT stop a period.

This sounds like you have a possible thyroid condition and if so then you need to take a medication such as synthroid.

YOu might have a problem with PCOS - Polycystic ovarian syndrome - and if so then you will need to take a medication such as Metformin every day.

And then if you are still having problems and you still want to get pregnant and everything seems to be normal - then I would suggest doing IVF - Invitro Fertilization to get pregnant.

I wish you well

is occlusion ruled out,if not what test can confirm the state of my tubes?

There is a test called Chromopertubation - which any ob/gyn can do for you.
To check your thyroid you need a TSH thyroid blood test
and to check PCOS - you need an ultrasound

I hope this helps.
