Menopause marks the end of the reproductive cycle in a woman, or so is the popular notion. But physiologically and even medically there are still chances that the woman can get pregnant even after hitting her menopausal years. The child bearing ability in the woman surely falls but it’s basically not all together impossible to still conceive a child in this stage.
How is This Possible?
Pregnancy can result in a menopausal stage in the condition when the menstruation is still on in the woman. The point here to understand that menstruation is a sign that the ovulation is still taking place. So when the egg is being released by the ovary and it meets the sperm, there are chances of a successful conception and pregnancy too.
However, it also thereby becomes natural that if menstruation has totally stopped, conception and pregnancy may not at all happen. This is because there are no more eggs in your ovaries that can be released.
So when menstruation sets in for good, there is almost no chance of pregnancy as there is no egg to meet the sperm, get fertilized and develop into a fetus. But the only situation where pregnancy is possible is when the menopause has not entirely set in, that is the peri-menopausal stage. During this period, ovulation becomes irregular but is totally stopped. Eggs get released from the ovaries every now and then and if it happens to get fertilized by the sperm on the ‘perfect’ moment, pregnancy can happen. But it should be better noted that chances of conception are rather slim and planning a pregnancy might require serious medical help. Thus we can conclude that pregnancy is not Naturally Possible after Menopause.
