Hello, I am 53 and last had a period just

Hello, I am 53 and last had a period just over a year ago. A few weeks ago, I had cystitis and burning in the vaginal area. My breasts engorged and became very sore after holding my new baby grandson, then following this, the hot flushes I have had for about 6 years disappeared, I had headache, mood swings and then started what is just like a period! The burning has subsided since and I the hot flushes have not returned. Is it still possible to still be having hormonal fluctuations now please?

Hello, I m an 18 year old female and this is a sexual health question. Normally before my period my breasts get tender and I feel tired and moody and then I have a heavy flow and sometimes my period is late no more than a week. I am sexually active and my period was late by one day and the day after I had the contraceptive implant put in ( 3 days ago) and I have since not had my period. I ve been using condoms as a contraceptive previously and I am worried that I am in fact pregnant or is it possible that the side effect of not having a period whilst with an implant hs already started working? If you could let me know that would be great.
