In brief: POSSIBLE

You can still get pregnant.
Your chances depend on many factors. Discussing this with your physician after a indepth history and physical will give you a better idea of what your chances actually are.

In brief: Guarded, but...

This is a difficult age (range 39-42) to give numerical estimates because individuals vary so much.
Fertility is diminished in all 42 year olds, but some have fair-to-good chances. For others, it is not possible at all. More specifics about your situation leads to more specific answers. Also, consideration of donated oocytes can change the prognosis significantly.
