My partner thinks she may be pregnant. In the time we have had sex I have had delayed ejaculation. She is 52 and not had a period in nearly 2 yrs?

In brief: Menopause

The definition of menopause in a 52 year old woman is the absence of menses for 6 to 9 months, I think there's a better chance shes menopausal, especially since the average age of menopause is 51.
But if she's worried home pregnancy tests are considered to be pretty reliable
