I'm almost 37. My mother went into perimenopause at 40. Took a test last week to assure myself that I was not pg. There really was almost no chance, DH and I did the whole 'pull & pray' thing, which has never been an issue and I didn't O until around 5 days after the last time we DTD (a whopping 2x last month).
I've been having symptoms the last 5/6 months of hitting perimenopause...cycle is short, long heavy AF, fatigue & weight gain despite exercising. Perimenopause I have read can cause false positives...anyone had an experience with this?
Did I mention the test was positive? Sorry

Reason: add additonal info
don't have any input on the premenopause thing but good luck which ever way your hoping it is.. preg or not preg
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Iv heard a lot about this on these boards .I have never heard of a false positive pregnancy test because of pre menapause .I know this can happen with some meds tho .I'd take another test and go back to see your doctor . I can only say what iv heard or read up on but I'm not a doctor .gl to you I hope it works out as you want it too .please keep us up to date with your results .
Pre-menopausal women experience longer or missed cycles. Wide swings in hormones, mostly progesterone and estrogen so your OB will want to test you at CD3, CD 14 and CD21. Pre-menopausal women also experience changes in body functionality: EG: Your hair doesn't grow as fast, or becomes brittle. Intestinal issues, such as IB or Constipation. Changes in body odor, pimples and skin color. Increase or decrease in headaches.
Menopause timing isn't always hereditary and can be brought on by illness or physical trauma. Similarly, if your body shuts down from trauma, it can also recover and get back to normal. ie cancer patients who go on to have babies.
An uptick in LH hormone or HCG is not one of the signs of perimenopause. If you are getting positives on multiple HPTs, you're most likely PG. You should see your OB.
