Pregnant if sexually active during perimenopause

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, February 14, 2008 | 0 comments

The need for contraception to prevent pregnancy ends only at menopause when menses permanently end, signalling that the ovaries are no longer producing eggs that could be fertilized.

Menopause is considered to have occurred only after a woman has not menstruated for one year. However, for a period of about four years before menopause — during peri-menopause — a woman’s ovaries may intermittently produce eggs, and she may become pregnant if she remains sexually active and does not use contraception.

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.
