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
