Yes, menstrual cycle continues even after tubectomy. 

Tubectomy   prevents the passage of ovum through the fallopian tube. Menstruation is the release of endometrial tissue along with the unfertilised ova in the absence of fertilisation. 

Every month uterus prepares itself for receiving fertilised egg (zygote) and help its development into baby. If fertilised egg is not received then prepared lining of uterus comes out of the body as menstrual flow. Even after tubectomy this process can continue i.e. menstruation will occur and ova will be also produced from the ovary but will not be released or carried to uterus through the fallopian tube.
