Started perimenopause symptoms at 43 I'm 46 3 negative pregnancy tests, missed three cycles.. Menopause?

Started perimenopause symptoms at 43 I'm 46 3 negative pregnancy tests, missed three cycles.. Menopause?

Possible but unsure: It is only after you have gone through at least 12 consecutive months of "missed ovulatory menstrual cycles" that you may be considered "menopausal". Until then, or unless your blood hormonal levels of FSH, LH are elevated in the menopausal range and your estrogens are very low, you may be considered to still be "perimenopausal" or simply entering the menopausal transition period of your life. ...Read more

Cramping last day of really strange period (began 10 days after last one). Highly doubtful i'm pregnant. Possible perimenopause or...? I'm 43.

Cramping last day of really strange period (began 10 days after last one).  Highly doubtful i'm pregnant.  Possible perimenopause or...? I'm 43.

More info: It's possible but unlikely you're in the perimenopause. Unless early menopause runs in your family, it's likely hormonal or due to lesion in uterus. Average age menopause is 51, so 43 quite early. You may want to see gyn md for consultation. Check thyroid, ultrasound and consider biopsy of uterus. It's unlikely, but at 43 if you have more than 1 period a month biopsy may be necessary. ...Read more

I'm 38 years old, sore nipples, last period in July 2014.had a tubal ligation at 25. Could I still be pregnant or is it perimenopause or hormonal?

I'm 38 years old, sore nipples, last period in July 2014.had a tubal ligation at 25. Could I still be pregnant or is it perimenopause or hormonal?

Yes, it's possible: There is a small possibility that pregnancy may occur after a tubal ligation. The ends of the cut tube sometimes may reconnect and pregnancy may occur. When this happens there is an increase risk for an ectopic pregnancy ie the pregnancy remains inside the tube and not migrate to the uterus. This can become a life threatening emergency. Do a pregnancy test, if positive see your doctor. ...Read more
