I appeared to stop my periods at least 3 years ago. During this 3 year period, I had the odd show but nothing to write home about. Just before Christmas, I had a full period which lasted 7 days and was similar to the normal periods that I had years ago. I am 49 years old and in the past week I have noticed that I'm getting niggling pains in my lower body, on my right hand side. I can't be pregnant? Or, is there a possiblity?
