Old Mum
I am 43 yrs old, think I may be pregnant, have never been able to have children. But I am worried about my age, what risks are there being pregnant at this age and what tests should I go for. I am 9 days late. Or am I being too hasty, I do feel like a period may come as I have been getting lower cramps but then again I have never been late. I miscarried 15 years ago and have never fallen pregnant since - I was 10 weeks.

The first thing to do would be to check a pregnancy test. The late period could be the start of menopause and not pregnancy.
