No: If you have never had a menstrual period and you are not a adolescent, then, no, you cannot get pregnant. If you have had periods and then stopped (secondary amenorrhea) than you can get pregnant. See a gyn md to determine the cause of primary amenorrhea.

Cannot; see a GYN.: If your brain isn't signalling for an egg release from your ovary, you won't have a signal for your periods either; that's usually the cause of amenorrhea. Often it's a hormonal imbalance--Thyroid, Prolactin, LH, FSH, Hcg should be checked. Your doctor can also induce a period as well w/ OCPs. If you've NEVER had a period, you should get an US to make sure you have normal uterus/vagina/ovaries.

No: Primary amenorrhea implies that one is past the point of the expected first period but has never had a period.
