Hello and welcome I'm Dr Chip

First off, she's probably going through menopause and for that reason it isn't likely she can get pregnant

She may also have a low thyroid problem and she needs to be checked for that

With menopause, there are hot flashes and the red face problem. That can be checked for with tests like estrogen, progesterone, FSH, and LH levels

She may also be anemic so I would also check for that

Please let me know if you need any more information
