Hello,
I am 41 with 3 kids and 1 grandson. Kids ages from 26 to 16. I had my tubes tied 2 hours after my daughter was born in 1999.
I always get my period every month faithfully. 2 almost 3 months now, I have missed my period. I have no symptoms of permenopause. I went to my doctor right after I missed my first one. He was going to do a pregnancy test on me but I told him I have my tubes tied. So he didn't do the test. He said I am not in permenopause and he thinks its stress. My father passed away last month. Yes, I have some stress but it isn't the worst stress I have been through and I never lost my period then. I have 60% loss from my right leg all the way up toward my upper back. So I don't have all my feelings due to my nerve being cut during surgery years ago. Also I read that I have a higher percent of getting pregnant since I had the tubal ligation done at a young age.
Things that changed recently with me:
1: missed periods
2: always had a flat belly and now a little bump.
3: have had diarrhea several times a day (within 20 minutes from eating) for almost 19 years now. That stopped around the same time my period stopped.
4: not wanting to drink coffee like I used to and I was a big time coffee drinker.
5: pressure in belly like having to urinate or if I drink something, I feel full fast.
I am not on any new medication. I am bad at taking meds. I just can't picture being pregnant at this time in my life. My husbands 11 years older than me and our youngest child has 1 year left of high school before college.
What would you do? Do you think I could be pregnant or something is wrong with me?
