Trying to figure if I am pregnant or not

Hi, I am 41 years old. I had a tubal 3 years ago after my c-section with my youngest. My periods have been regular since then, but now my last period was October 5 with no signs of starting. I am also leaking milk but haven't nursed in over a year. I did one of the early pregnancy tests that was negative, but after a couple of hours it had changed to positive. I'm not sure if it was a false positive or not. At this point I'm not sure what to think. Anyone have advise to contribute? I made an appointment with my doctor, but I don't know what else this could be, and am hesitant to believe the test, since it changed after the time was up. Thanks!

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to our community and that you have a scheduled appointment with your doctor.

Disregard the "positive" result because it was seen a couple of hours later.

I am puzzled why you are lactating. My guess for that and the delayed period is a hormonal upset.

Please keep us updated once you are seen.
