    am 44 years old and im having sore nipples and lower back i have not bbeen told that im perimenopausing I was pregnant 2 years ago and had a misscarrigethen had polyps removed and 2 month after could I be pregnant again
    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
