I am 46 years old, I'm pretty sure I've been in the early stages of menopause for a yr or more. I had my tubes cut, tied, and burnt.... So I was told, 19 years ago after the birth of my 3rd child. She was my only C-section.
I have had multiple periods in a month, during the last year, but have never completely missed a period. Even when I was having my 3 children, i had spotty bleading for 4-6 months while pregnant.
I am a full week late for my period. I don't even feel like I'm going to get it. I normally get a 3 day long headache right before I start, cramps, grouchy moods, sore breasts... I haven't had any of the normal signs. I've been checking different medical sites online, and most say, although rare, you can become pregnant, and the more years since the tubal ligation, the greater the risk of becoming pregnant.
I'm not gonna lie, if I were to be pregnant, I would be thrilled! My oldest two children moved out a year ago, one 1200 miles away, and the other to Germany, about 3500 miles away. My 19 year old is still with me, but "empty nest" is slamming my emotions into overdrive.
If I don't start in another day or so, I'll get an in home test and see what it says. It could be the first of many missed periods due to my age/menopause, but hey... I can dream..... Right?
Would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this, anyone out there in my situation end up pregnant? I'm pretty curious at this point.
