Hi Anon

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHER with your question!

Pregnancy at the age of 46 with a tubal is highly unlikely. I assume you have taken a pregnancy test. If not, do so.

Tubes can actually grow back but the risk is only about 1%. But this is why you should test - just to be sure.

Peri-menopause can start as early as mid 30s to the 50s. One of the first signs is a cycle that is becoming more irregular so this may be what's going on with you.

You can read all about peri-menopause here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/perimenopause

If you skip next month too, however, talk to your doctor about other possibilities as to why this is happening, if it's not peri-menopause.

Hi again Anon!

You need to take a test to rule it out, that's what they are there for, otherwise it's just a guessing game.

Again, the odds of pregnancy are extremely low. Period changes and weight gain with peri-menopause often come first and long before hot flashes. This is far more likely the cause.
