Please can someone help me?...I think I am loosing my sanity.
I am 52 yrs. old and for 1 year+ I've been having all the symptoms of menopause. I haven't had my period for over a year now. But 3 weeks +2 days ago I had sex May 18, and May 19). A week later I started to feel nauseated and some weird movements in my abdomen (like butterflies wondering around inside of me) Yes, I feel pregnant, but I took a pregnancy test on June 9th and it came out NEGATIVE! And and now it feels like I am getting a period any minute (like a pressure in my lower tummy and plenty of movement activity).
It's been 3 weeks +2 days since I had intercourse. Plus I totally lost all my " hot flashes" that I was getting daily...I haven't had one over 3 weeks and I used to get them several times a day. I am a very active 52 yrs. old... I run 40 miles a week and I do Bikram Yoga daily. I haven't felt this symptoms since the last time I was pregnant over 16 yrs. ago... Could it be possible to be pregnant at all after getting already a NEGATIVE test??? What can I do? I am desperate... I am waking up at 2:30 A.M. every morning and I can't go back to sleep!

there is no way you could be pregnant if you have not had a period for a year because you do not ovalate without having a period

Thank you for the reply... It makes me feel better although this morning I notice augmentation and some tenderness on my breasts.
Maybe it's only my imagination and I am just driving myself crazy!?! I hope with all my heart that you are totally right, and this is the result of my mind playing tricks on me. I wonder how I can make myself stop... I am scared.

the only way to ease your mind is go to your doctor to get a blood test done they show up sooner then a p.test but i'am 100% sure you can not get pregnant without having a period

There is really no chance for you to be pregnant. First of all, you wouldn't get symptoms only a week after having intercourse. And second, when you don't ovulate, you can't get pregnant. Your worrying is making these symptoms appear. You wouldn't have any movement in your abdomen until around four months or more anyway, so just tell yourself you are NOT pregnant, and stop worrying.

God works in misterious ways, my cousins wife got pregnant in her 40's and she didn't have any ovaries cause they were taken out when she was younger.The baby she is now 14 and the only child she could have.

Bluediamond2: Thanks for your words and your advice...I am trying to tell myself every minute of my days that it is impossible for something like that to happen. Like you said I need to stop worrying about it. I am trying to go on with my regular life and don't let the symptoms and 'flutters' in my abdomen make me crazy. Thank you!

Age 52 and pregnant, natural, tubal clamps done 17 years ago
Well, It is 2013 -late April.... this post and some other made me feel better and not feel alone.... I am age 52 ... a widow with grown children ---and I am pregnant... internist took blood, but I need to go to a ob/gyn.... I think I am between 20 to 24 weeks along... I haven't had a period in well over year or more.... and I had my tubes clamped 17 years ago... the posts I read taught me the clamps can slide off after years... and when I was going crazy about 4 weeks ago thinking I must be pregnant --I remember the clamped tubes and myself I was crazy --but was already in the car to get a pregnancy tell... so I did it anyway -- twice and it was negative both times... reading these posts taught me that not not uncommon with older women having the same concerns as I was having with or without clamped tubes... I guess I miss the news report on clamps sliding off, ect... -alert the news media please.... so basicly this is a miracle conception from a relationship that did not have lots of intimate encounters --because I just got my children out of the house and I need to make a complete balance life of just me before spending too much time with him or joining my life with his.... my children are ages 24 and 26 --this is the God's honest truth!! Thanks for letting me read post that were written on different sites -including this one. --And I am a bit scare --but then I remember this is a miracle from looking at the real science medical data and read facts --So know God must have a had in this!!! I have been eatting low calorie food with vitamins to loose weight -and not much food --lost weight but held this weight for weeks now...
