Don't wait because with eratic periods you could go a very long time without knowing your pregnant, And you need to get prenatal care and get on prenatal vitamins. It can be especially dangerous not knowing if you're pregnant if you drink or do drugs. Even if you don't do it heavily, the begining stages of pregnancy are the most crucial. So if you suspect it, take it seriously.

How can you tell menopause from pregnancy?

To know the difference, you should take a pregnancy test. If you haven't had sex for a while but are skipping periods, and you are over 35, it very well could be perimenopause or full-blown menopause. If you are sexually active, you should take a pregnancy test. It might also be early stages of menopause, but if you are still having ANY periods, there is still the chance of pregnancy.
