What are the chances (vaguely) of a 54-year-old woman, who has irregular periods (4 to 6 months without one, then can go 2 or 3 months with light ones), who had sex one time halfway through her cycle and took the plan b "morning after" pills, of being pregnant? Would you say the chances are pretty slim?
I have heard that a woman has to wait at least until the day or day after her period is missed before she can use a home pregnancy test. But when they aren't "regular" in the first place, it would be hard to tell if it is missed because of perimenopause or because of pregnancy. Does perimenopause cause hormone imbalances that could give a false reading on a test?
No, didn't take the home test yet. It isn't time for my period until dec. 16 or 17, but they are traditionally late anyway. It's been almost 2 weeks since the "episode." just didn't know about fertility levels when a woman is having very irregular, light periods before menopause sets in.
Yeah, me either. I was just curious if you have had symptoms, and if you did plan b like yesterday it could still show positive on hpt if you had done one yet.
I think it would be cool for you to be pregnant--but I guess that is just me. I am 44 and 24 weeks pregnant--with what .God told me is "a miracle baby" he told me of it 18 years ago. For I had my uterus removed 19 years ago.
Ok, it is now january 8 and still no period. But I have taken two tests with ept sticks and both came up negative. But I am still wondering if being perimenopausal can cause hormone changes that would cause a false negative result. 'cause like I said, my periods have been very irregular, so even if I go another couple of months without one isn't unusual, even if I didn't have any sex.
Also, that plan b stuff doesn't seem good enough. Can't california people get a hold of the abortion pill like canadians have access to? What a gyp. When is it considered too late to take one of those? I am getting close to the edge mentally here. Hmm, I see a previous post I made was deleted. Great.
