In brief: Preg post menopause

True menopause is defined as the absence of menses for one full year. If you have reached that time period it is unlikely that you'll conceive.
Until then you could become pregnant!n clearly if you want to conceive your chances of a child with a defect increase. The commonest defect is downs syndrome which is more common in a woman over 35 yrs of age.
