hot flashes aren't a sign of pregnancy. Many drugs can cause them, probably megace too. I doubt you're pregnant, but I can't see anything wrong with waiting this time and not taking it until you get your period. Check with your dr. When you're on drugs like this you need to be sure you don't get pregnant, and getting a birth control method asap would be a good idea. After you know that megace is causing the symptoms, then you have no excuse to stop it again.
