I am 42 years old and i have my regular menstrual period every month but don't have any sexual intercourse for a year with my husband. in the month of September we have had intercourse after my regular period. We never use any contraceptive or any method until the end of the month. My period in the month of September started in the 5th day and in the first week of October my next cycle followed until October 4. On the 16th day of October i experienced 3 days menstruation with blood clot.. I don't feel any sign of menstrual period this month of November and to my understanding, I am 20 days delayed.. could it be possible that i am pregnant??? this is the first time that i encountered this kind of cycle..

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Anytime you are having intercourse and not using any form of contraceptive, there is alway a chance of pregnancy. However, you could be experiencing an irregular menstrual cycle in which case your hormones are out of balance.

Are you under a lot of stress? Have you had an increase or decrease in your weight?
Another possible cause is pituitary tumors (benign /non-cancerous) tumors. They can cause irregular periods and missed periods in pre-menopausal women.

Call and make an appointment with your doctor to begin the discovery process.

Be well,
