Being able to conceive after reaching menopause is not impossible for most women. One may be able to have a child or get pregnant even after reaching the menopausal stage. This happens when there is a hormonal imbalance in the woman’s body.
Menopausal stage is the stage in a woman’s life when she is not anymore capable of bearing a child inside her womb. This is because her menstruation has stopped and a woman at this stage is no longer productive thus unable for her to conceive a child. Being able to conceive at this stage is the very essence of every woman.
It is the sudden change in the hormones of the woman thus the cassation of menstrual period is prevalent. The end of menstruation is the stop of having to conceive a child. This is because the hormone that helps in the ovulation and maternity are not active anymore. The supply of estrogen and progesterone has declined or not enough to make a woman bear a child. However, the menopausal stage is a long process to complete, sometimes due to hormonal imbalance and a quick leap of fate, a woman is able to conceive a child, thus making them so awkward to look that they are pregnant at the age of 40’s or 50’s.
Using an effective contraception to prevent pregnancy would be of good use after menopause. However, woman at the age of forties or fifties are not allowed to take contraceptive pills due to health reasons because contraceptive pills may have a side effect. Sometimes women in their forties or fifties suffer from different ailments such as hypertensions and other health problems they were suggested to use other forms of birth control like diaphragm, IUD or much better is tubal ligation in which it is a permanent form of contraception. All of these kinds of birth control are effective and the only thing that matters are the choices of the method that suits the woman’s body.
Conception at the period of menopause entails greater risk for the fetus inside the mother’s womb. These include infections, embolisms and even bleeding or hemorrhage. Hypertensions, strokes and seizures are also the underlying risk to the child’s health that may develop or occur during pregnancy in the menopausal stage. Fetal risk and abnormalities is also most possible to take place. Chances are there, for children born during the menopausal stage, that they might have Down’s syndrome, autism while others have produced children having an IQ of beyond the normal standard.

You may not have your regular monthly period but still on the verge of your menopause, in order to be sure not for you to get pregnant, take a birth control pill or use a proper contraceptive method to be sure.
