THe home pregnancy test can be false +ve with kidney infection ,but false -ve is not possible. so you hve to investigate for your amenorrheoa &get it treated with a gynac advice
you should realy be fast.if you are interested in pregnancy at such an advanced age.also if you conceive pl. get normality of baby checked before continuing it.(for certain congenital anamolies are common in elderly pregnancies.)

hello,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
1st thing generally ramipril is contraindicated in pregnancy due to adverse fetal effect
if you missed your last 3 cycles then you can go for other investigations for the causes of amenorrhea
your age as far higher side . so it may be the menopause started for you
you consult a nearby gynecologist for the possible cause. it may be due to hormonal imbalance also.
take care
