Delayed Menstruation In Women Aged 45 Years Is A Sign Of Pregnancy Or Menopause?
Sorry, I want to ask ….

Hello Elly Ta,
Women who still experience regular menstruation can still get pregnant, although the possibility of getting pregnant at an older age will be more difficult. The number of eggs in women has been fixed from the beginning, so that the number of eggs will decrease every year because every month is released by the ovaries (ovulation) even though fertilization does not occur.
Planning to become pregnant at the age of> 45 years has the following risks:
The risk of hypertension (high blood pressure) and diabetes (high blood sugar) during pregnancy is higher
The risk of preterm birth is higher
The risk of placenta previa is higher
Increased risk of genetic / chromosomal abnormalities
Increased risk of postpartum bleeding in mothers
Higher risk of spontaneous abortion / miscarriage
Pregnant at the age of> 45 years is categorized as a high-risk pregnancy. Therefore it must be considered carefully. Even if possible prenatal examination can be done to check the risk of genetic disorders from women and their husbands. Pregnancy will also be more tiring for pregnant women in old age because of physical factors that are not as fit as when they were young.
Menopause occurs at different ages. Menopause occurs because the reproductive hormones produced by the ovaries decreases. A woman is said to be menopausal if she does not experience menstruation for 12 months. Menopause can occur at the age of 45-55 years. Symptoms of menopause are reduced menstruation, sagging breasts, dry skin, weight gain, mood swing, vaginal dryness, decreased libido, etc.
In early pregnancy in addition to late menstruation, other symptoms that can be experienced are mood changes, excessive nausea, body feels unwell, sensitive to certain odors, discomfort in the lower abdomen, etc. To determine if you are pregnant or not, you can do a test pack if you have a 1 week late period. Other tests that can be done are ultrasonography and blood HCG examination. Please consult further with an obstetrician to plan a pregnancy. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
