Do you have any symptoms?
Can you tell us your age?

Signs would include a positive pregnancy test by now, since you are four weeks past your expected period start-date (in other words: a pregnancy test would show positive by now). Any other signs would be if you are having symptoms (pain, irregular bleeding, etc).

If you are in your mid-40s, you could begin having irregular menstrual periods (some women do not begin "perimenopause" until later, but some women do begin in their 40s).
