Could I Be Pregnant After No Period For Seven Months At Age 50?

I have not had a period for seven months, I had intercourse and now have physical symptoms of pregnancy and wake up with night sweats like menopause. Could I be pregnant?

Answer

Hi Friend,

After 7 months of no periods and being age 50, it is very unlikely that you could still get pregnant, but it is not impossible. You will want to have your provider run a follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) blood test on you to give you the definitive answer.

Good luck,
