Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

do you normally have a regular period every month?

JACUSTOMER-oars7q6o- : YES
Dr Owen :

okay

Dr Owen :

well unlikely this is the endometriosis causing this

Dr Owen :

and with a negative pregnancy test and given you are 44, more than likely this is just perimenopause and not a pregnancy

Dr Owen :

Other reasons for not having a period and not being pregnant could be a thyroid condition which is easily checked with a TSH thyroid blood test

JACUSTOMER-oars7q6o- : Ok
Dr Owen :

If you have more questions, please ask

Dr Owen :

I am here to help you

JACUSTOMER-oars7q6o- : I thought as much but then kept reading that pregnancy tests can give false negatives
Dr Owen :

well if you do a second test and the second test from a GOOD company is still zero - and given you are 44, then very likely you are Not pregnant

JACUSTOMER-oars7q6o- : I'M pretty sure I'm not as I needed ivf for my last pregnancy but thanks
Dr Owen :

okay

Dr Owen :

I wish you well

Dr Owen :

If you have more questions, please ask

JACUSTOMER-oars7q6o- : NO that's fine. THanks
