Q7. Can you become pregnant whilst going through the menopause?

A7. The menopause is assumed to be a time when a woman’s fertility decreases and she is no longer able to have children.

It is difficult to become pregnant during this time but it does happen. One of the myths of the menopause is that a woman cannot become pregnant during the menopause but it has happened and will probably continue to do so.

It is a good idea to continue using contraception until two years have passed since your last menstrual period. Do this if you are under 50.

If you are 50 or over then wait for 1 year after your last menstrual period before stopping contraception.
