PeriMenopause or pregnancy?
My wife is almost 43. Last year she began having major hot flashes. When she talked with her doctor, he said it could be pre menopause, but since her periods were regular, it probably wasn't. He did run blood tests and found her hormones to be normal. She starting taking black cohash(sp) and that seemed to help.
About 3 months ago she started taking Zoloft for mild depression. At that time, she came off of the black cohash. Her hot flashes now come and go but aren't as frequent.
So there is the background. Now she has not had her period in over 2 months. The last time was in February. The first thought would be she was pregnant, however, I had a vasectomy 3 years ago and I have found it is very rare for those to fail after that amount of time. She has no other signs of pregnancy and since we figured that if she was pregnant she would be about 8 weeks along right now, there should be some other signs, shouldn't there? No nausea, no weight gain, no change in breast size, no tender breasts and so on.
She refuses to take a pregnancy test and assures me that she is not pregnant, that she knows her body. She is kind of acting like she has PMS right now, so I may be posting this without needing to, but I would like some opinions.
