How likely is pregnancy

Patient

Q: Im 43 and been trying to get pregnant. My period came 2 days late(im usually clock work) and only lasted 2 days(normal is 4). (12/29-12/31)Now my face is getting blotchy and breaking out. I haven't tested, could i be pregnant?

Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Minor variations in menstrual cycle can be seen usually.
Generally menstrual cycle with length of 21 days to 35 days and flow for 2 to 7 days can be considered as normal only.
If you want to be sure, better to go for urine pregnancy test once.
Take care.
