Hi Anon,

Thanks for posting. If you have not had a period for over a year then you can no longer get pregnant. Unfortunately nausea and dizziness are not specific to pregnancy... have you been ill lately? Are you on any medications? 

Any sudden onset of dizziness should be evaluated by your doctor. 

Please schedule an appointment as soon as possible and keep us posted,
