6 years pregnant.

A woman came in today saying she was 6 years pregnant. She had no belly and looked on the older side... so I told her I'd see her for a prenatal. I was confident she wasn't pregnant but I didn't want her to worry.

When I talked to her about menopause and the symptoms of it, she told me she had them all. But ... she was sure she was still pregnant.

It took some intense explaining before she admitted it was possible... but even now, I'm not sure she's convinced. Sigh.

Anyone know how to convince a woman she's menopausal? I'm open to suggestions. I really am!
