Ovulation and menopause

Patient

Q: Dear doctors: I am 59 years old and have no menstruation for seven years. In recent months, I feel that I am "bigger" on the waist(when I sit down, it is more obvious)... I am very afraid that if I am getting pregnant? I don't understand! I don't have sex for years.How can this be happening? I think I have past the years of menopause as I am going onto 60 years of my life. Well I did sometimes having argument with my family members , and that made my emotion very bad! Will that bad emotion make me ovulation again? Will women after menopause still making ovulation?
