Can a woman get pregnant during menopause? What is a menopausal baby means?

stacy - August 27th, 2009 12:07 AM

Most likely, but the answer is no. Menopause is when the body no longer drops the egg. So therefore, it is impossible to get pregnant during menopause.

I have read an article about this and it says that, until woman hasn't had menses for atleast a year can possibly still get pregnant. This is because, she may still ovulate during this time.

Not unless she have completed menopause, chances are she can still get pregnant. I think the answer is yes.

Menopausal baby usually refers to a baby conceived around the time a woman thought she was entering menopause. Health risks are really high on this kind of situation both for the mother and child.

This happened to a friend of mine. At 50 years old, she was told by her gynecologists that she was starting the menopause. Believe it or not, a year later after not having her menstrual cycle, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. I guess this is what they call, the menopausal baby.

Late pregnancies occur because a woman may still be fertile enough to conceive during the time of perimenopausal stage. Therefore, its yes!

Ladies, thanks for your replies. So do you mean to say that, if you are still having period regardless of their irregularity then you are actually still ovulating?

marsha - August 28th, 2009 3:45 AM

It is clear without a doubt even though you are in the beginnings of your menopause years, you still have a possibility of getting pregnant. The question now is, do you still want to get pregnant? i mean, i can't imagine having a baby at 48. does anyone of you here wanting a baby at this age?

lyka - August 28th, 2009 3:48 AM

Hahaha... Now, that's a good question to start. While most woman are awaiting the arrival of their grandchildren, who would want to start all over again with a baby at this age?

If your physically fit and healthy, why not? There's no such thing as too late as long as your happy. Isn't it?

I have read an article that the benefits of late motherhood are physical, emotional and social. This means that, woman who have babies in their late 40's have longer lives.

trixie - August 28th, 2009 7:33 AM

I have to say i disagree. Late pregnancy have higher risk for both mother and child.

danessa - August 28th, 2009 8:42 AM

I say early 20's or early 30's are the best time for motherhood. Woman are independent and confident with this age.

marsha: i don't think theres anything wrong with having babies at this age. personally, i’m more concerned as to the health risks of the mother and child, than what others say about it.

janine - September 2nd, 2009 9:41 AM

as woman gets older, it becomes harder to carry pregnancy full term. i think it is very important to talk to your doctor if you're planning to have late pregnancies.

imee - September 2nd, 2009 12:25 PM

in addition to marsha's reply, i don't think that a 10 year old kid would want to have a 58 year old mother. too old isn't it? i believe that having children while young has a lot of benefits for the child.
