Can a menopausal woman still be pregnant
Women usually don’t get pregnant after complete menopause. Because pregnancy is when eggs and sperm combine to form fertilized eggs. Menopause means that women’s menstruation stops permanently, ovarian function drops sharply, normal physiological function cannot be maintained, and mature eggs cannot be discharged and fertilized. Menopause usually refers to a woman who does not menstruate for more than one year, and at the same time excludes the possibility of pregnancy. The menopausal age is generally between 45 and 55 years old. A small number of patients have menopause for one year, but in fact, ovarian function has not dropped to menopausal level, only amenorrhea has occurred. These patients theoretically have the possibility of natural pregnancy, but this situation is very rare. In addition, even after menopause and receiving donated eggs, the uterus may be pregnant.
