Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear ladyNtate,
It is indeed possible that you are pregnant; and I would do a blood pregnancy test to check into it. Indeed, until you go a full year without a period, you can get pregnant; I personally have delivered 3 47 year old women who had thought that they were perimenopausal.
Let us know what happens,
Good luck,
Mary Jane
