Hi Lena, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
A sterile procedure or what is also called a tubectomy will not cause hornomal changes in women, therefore irregular menstruation that you are experiencing is likely not caused by the tubectomy. Some of the possible causes of irregular menstruation include:
Physiological hormonal changes such as an increase or decrease in excess body weight, excessive stress, strict diet, excessive exercise, or nearing menopause
Hormonal changes due to certain diseases such as PCOS, hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism
Hormonal disturbances due to side effects of certain drugs
Disorders of the reproductive organs such as infection, polyps, fibroids, myoma, cysts, etc.
Judging from your age, chances are that the irregular menstruation you are experiencing is because you started entering menopause (called the perimenopause period). Most women experience menopause at the age of 45-55 years. However, the symptoms of perimenopause can start several months to several years before the actual menopause occurs. The following are some of the symptoms of perimenopause:
irregular menstrual cycle
a face that feels hot and flushed (hot flashes)
night sweats and chills
increasing body weight and slowing down the body's metabolism
Even so, it's a good idea to make sure beforehand that there really is no certain disorder that you have that can cause irregular menstruation that you experience. You can check with your obstetrician to make sure.
For now a few things you can do:
reduce excess stress
maintain ideal body weight, do not diet too tightly, lose weight slowly if there is excess body weight
eat healthy food regularly
avoid excessive exercise

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
