Concerned about Missed Period
EliWerk posted:
I am 46 years old and for the first time skipped my period over the last week. I had a tubal ligation 7 years ago. My periods have been regular but the time between has been about 25 days. I took a home pregnancy test once that was negative. What are the chances of being pregnant and could this just be the start of perimenopause/menopause. I have had heat flashed and insomnia as well.
