I am 54 and haven't had a period in 3 years. Can I still get pregnant or not?
I have been going through menopause for 5 years at least. I haven't had a period in 3 years. Only sexually active once in the three years. Can a person become pregnant under these circumstances or not?
Answers
No. Once you've gone through menopause you are no longer able to get pregnant.
no menopause means you are not able to have children any longer women only have a certain amount of eggs
I doubt it. My mom had her period regularly until past age 55 and there was still a 5% chance she could get pregnant according to the dr. More than likely, she would have miscarried. I do hope you aren't actively trying to conceive. That is a bit messed up. Menopause can mimic pregnancy to some degree. I don't think you need to worry.
