I would say yes it is possible to get pregnant if you haven't gone a whole year without a period. I would take a pregnancy test to be sure. T.

I thnk so. I was deemed "menopause" and then my periods started up again. So if I had listened to the first doctor I saw and didn't use contraceptives then I could have gotten pregnant. It's worth taking a test and checking.

I'm pretty sure it is possible to become pregnant during the peri menopause and the menopause. I have often read that if you are under 50 you need to use contraception for 2yrs once you reach the menopause and for 1yr if you are over 50, so obviously it can happen during that time.

Question Re: can a woman get pregnant during prei or even menopause?

OH YES - you most definitely can
My Grandmother had 2 children during peri. consequently I have an Aunty and Uncle same age as myself and younger. She had these at 40 and 42 and was post menopausal by 43 - everything finished. Doesn't recall menopause being any problems. Maybe that is a benefit of late preganancy. Sure wouldn't want to try it out. Maybe she was just too tired and busy . . . . and there was one 2 years prior to those two, plus others before Eight children in all.My our grandmothers were made of tough stuff. She is still going and turns 88 on Sunday....
(My mother also finished with her periods at 43 - but had hot flushes for 15 years )
