Q: Can I get pregnant at 49 yrs. old and not period for 12 months

I am 49 yrs. old and not had a period in 12 months, can I still get pregnant?  I have always had irregular periods since starting at age 15.

Hi Sophie,

It's very unlikely that you would get pregnant at 49 with no periods for 12 months, but I would encourage you to have a blood test, the FSH, to be sure.  If you were older or it had been 1 1/2 yrs with no period, I'd be more definite, and it is highly unlikely, but that's one question you want a "for sure" answer to! :)
