Can you get pregnant if you have amenorrhea?

Very unlikely: Amenorrhea is caused by an inability of the ovaries to produce hormones. If they did start to work again ovulation could occur. If the egg gets fertilized pregnancy could occur. Unlikely, but possible.

Thanks for asking!: Pregnancy could be a cause for amenorrhea.

Definitely: Menses and fertility do not always go hand-in-hand.

Yes !: Pregnancy is the most common cause of secondary amenorrhea. This may be true even for women with a tubal ligation. Get a pregnancy test.

Is it possible to get pregnant if I have secondary amenorrhea?

Dr. Christopher Powers

Yes: Secondary amenorrhea (lack of a ovulation cycle in a woman who previously had one) can be caused by a number of factors, but almost all can be overcome and ovulation induced in one way or another. For example, often the problem is weight gain which will interfere with ovulation. Losing as little as a few pounds can restore cycles.
