Pregnancy vs. perimenopause symptoms

Although getting pregnant at 50 is possible as long as you are on perimenopause, oftentimes women tend to confuse the symptoms of pregnancy with those of perimenopause. As one shall see in the chart, each stage in a woman's life has its own set of symptoms, but most of them are quite similar, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Missed period
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Weight gain
