43 and pregnant?

I have not had my menstrual cycle for two months, I have taken a few pregnancy tests and they have all come back as negative.  I am 43 years old and have always had regular cycles, however I went off the pill in December and ever since then I have had strange cycles. Now, my eating habits have not changed, however my stomach seems very bloated all the time and I am not having my menstrual cycle.  Every one tells me this could be an Etopic pregnancy, is this possible and if so what would be some of the other symptoms? would a pregnancy test come back negative if this were the case?

I have a Dr. appointment tomorrow, however I know he will send me for several unwarranted tests when he probably could easily diagnose me right there in his office because I have good insurance.

Can you please help, or make some comments on this?

Its so hard to say.  Could be pregnant, or your cycle could just be out of whack.  I would imagine your Dr. would only need to do a blood test to determine if you are pregnant.  Good luck to you, I hope you get the outcome you are looking for.

Oh, and an etopic pregnancy will still test positive for pregnancy, the same hormones are still produced.  Other symptoms of etopic are sometimes bleeding, and abdominal pain usually on one side (sharp pains).  I have never had one, but google it, it will tell you.

Best of luck to you.
