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. ...Read more

I need to know if can I get pregnant with primary amenorrhea?

Dr. Brian Nguyen
Board Certified, Obstetrics and Gynecology

2M people helped

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. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant if I have secondary amenorrhea from stopping birth cotrol pills after 5 years?

Dr. Christina Adberg
Board Certified, Obstetrics and Gynecology
21 years in practice

Yes: Secondary amenorrhea can resolve itself at any time. You will ovulate prior to having your first period, so there will come a time when you are fertile, and you have no idea when that is! of course there are non-reversible causes of amenorrhea, like premature ovarian failure, that will never resolve, but they are unusual. Post pill amenorrhea usually resolves itself. ...Read more

Post-pil amenorrhea?: This means having no periods for a while - like months to over a year - after stopping bc pills. Women who had irregular periods before starting the pills are at greatest risk. You can get pregnant during the time of amenorrhea (no periods) if you ovulate and have unprotected sex. So be sure to use a "barrier method, " foam & condoms, etc., to protect yourself. Stress induced? Don't know. Good luck. ...Read more

May be it has to.: If you haven't had a period in almost 20 years, you will likely need help getting pregnant. Are you sure that your insurance won't cover fertility treatment? It varies from state to state, but many have laws requiring that health insurance policies cover fertility treatment. I recommend that you start by seeing a gynecologist and take it from there. I wish you the best. ...Read more
