Can a woman get pregnant if she done went through menopause?

Can a woman get pregnant if she done went through menopause?

Not with her own egg: Once menopausal, by definition, a woman is no longer fertille, but rather sterile. If a menopausal woman wanted to get pregnant, one option is going through ivf and using an egg from a much younger woman. This would allow her to be a biological mother by carrying the pregnancy, but not the genetic mother (egg from another woman). ...Read more

It is unlikely to be able to become pregnant but it is also more dangerous to the mother and baby as maternal age increases. Best advice is that if pregnancy is unwanted, then use condoms or some other form of pregnancy prevention. ...Read more

Cant get pregnant. Could I possibly have premature menopause symptoms?

I had a sex with my boy friend, my menopause cycle is 21st but still i hadn't get it, i made a pregnancy check by it resulted negative, help?

I had a sex with my boy friend, my menopause cycle is 21st but still i hadn't get it, i made a pregnancy check by it resulted negative, help?

Don't panic!: Your question is slightly confusing, but from what you are saying, i can assume: 1. Your menstrual cycle was due on the 21st. 2. You are sexually active 3. You are at risk for pregnancy due to a lack of protection if you were pregnant, then the test would likely have turned positive by now. So I do not think you are pregnant. Go to your doctor for a blood pregnancy test. ...Read more

There : There is no way to delay menopause. Schedule a visit with your gynecologist, lab tests can be done to check your hormone levels to determine your fertility. Be aware that if you become pregnant you are considered ama (advanced maternal age) which places your baby at a higher risk for chromosomal disorders such as down's syndrome. There are ways to determine if your baby is healthy while in utero (amniocentesis). Your doctor will be able to explain all your options and risks in great detail. Best of luck. ...Read more

Me: 31, premature menopause, FSH is 120, amh is 0, 16. Medicine: estradiol, progesterone, dhea & coq10. Is there a chance i can get pregnant naturally?

Elevated FSH: Since the fsh is elevated, you may have fewer normal eggs than others your age. Still, it doesn't mean that you have no normal eggs. However, the chance for success with ivf or other art procedures is low. Oocyte donation may be your best option. ...Read more
