    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.

    It could be the start of menopause your you could have just not ovulated.
    EliWerk replied to tlkittycat1968's response:
    Thanks for the response. I'm admit. I'm a little freaked out about it because this has never happened before. I've read about people getting pregnant even though they've had a tubal years ago.
