Having pregnancy symptoms. Pregnancy test negative. Missed period, frequent heartburn. Pregnant or menopause?

I have several pregnancy symptoms but the pregnancy test is negative. The first symptom occurred Dec. 24th. My breasts were very sore and have increased steadily in size and tenderness. In January I was nauseated at night. It felt like I had overeaten when in fact I had only a small portion and plenty of food left to eat and could not finish it. My periods were lighter but on schedule until February 9th. It was 5 days early and still light. I have missed my period since then, and I have been on a regular schedule for years. I am constantly exhausted and sleeping more. I have frequent heartburn . My face flushes occasionally. I am craving strange combinations of food. I am 39 years old. Could this be pregnancy or menopause? I have never had children.

Thanks for the query.
You better consult gynecologist and go for hormonal evaluation.
Including: FSH, LH, estrogen, progesterone, prolactin, thyroid profile, beta HCG levels and hemoglobin status.
By these the possibility of pregnancy rule out and the chances of menopause can be identified.
And also other hormonal abnormalities can be made out.
After these workup the possible cause for your problem can be sort-out and treatment can be given accordingly.
Take care.
