Patient : I am 48 years old. I have had no menopausal symptoms yet. I missed my usual period (just have some very light spotting here and there and abdominal cramps)for the past few weeks. I am VERY regular every month. Over the weekend I took 3 home pregnancy tests and all were positive. Could this be pregnancy or is the HCG hormone produced when a woman begins menopause? I am really confused with the information on the internet.
