Delayed periods, nausea, cramps, brown vaginal discharge, unprotected sex. Menopause or pregnancy?

My last period was dec3 and I m usually 28-30 days. So obviously I was expecting my period on or around Jan3. Its now Jan 12 and nothing. For the last week on/off I ve been experiencing nausea .The last 3 days cramping and slight brown tinge when I wipe. I expected my period to be coming right away but still nothing. My husband and I have unprotected sex but he also had a vacsectomy just over a year ago. Could this be pre menapause or pregnancy?

Hello Good Evening,

This is very tough task to do idea about that you are menopausal or not, without knowing your age.

Vasectomy has more success rate of sterilization than tubectomy.
So there are very few chances to get conceive but not impossible.

Generally man can remain fertile for around 3-4 months after vasectomy but failure rate of this procedure is 1:2000 after this period, which is far less than tubectomy but not the zero.

So pregnancy can be a possibility, another is menopause, depends on your age, and another is menstrual irregularities.

So you should go through a urine pregnancy test, then to a gynecologist.
