Women as old as 50 have been known to get pregnant naturally

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, February 27, 2007 | 0 comments

If you are going through menopause you may be thinking that you are about to be free from the burden of children. Maybe your kids are just leaving home and you are thinking about how wonderful it will be to have the house to yourself again.

Well, before you redecorate you should probably know that, even during menopause, it is possible to become pregnant. Women as old as 50 have been known to get pregnant naturally, particularly during peri-menopause.

In order to be menopausal you have to have been period free for at least 12 months. If your periods are still showing up every now and then, you are probably still ovulating and thus have a chance of becoming pregnant.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
