Hi, Though you don't look 53 or your periods never stopped, we actually do not know how your ovulation is going on. At this age the capacity of producing eggs decreases and the quality of egg also decreases. But, you can try consulting your doctor, if you want to try any pregnancy, you need to be strictly supervised and monitored through out.
Hotflashes are due to estrogen deficiency and you need a hormonal assessment to plan further.
Consult a gynaecologist, so that she can guide you with the steps.
