    I am 50 years old, have not had a regular period in about 12 months and have just had an FSH test done that showed 80. Is there a possibility that I can still become pregnant unless I have not had a period for 12 more consecutive months? Does that FSH result mean that I have no more eggs left?

    Hi! I am 55 years old and I have had irregular periods since my 20's. What are the chances of becoming pregnant?

      Once you have not had any periods for 2 years you are almost certainly safe from pregnancy. Before that time your risk is higher. Best Wishes, Eileen

    Hi Im 46 and I have not had a period or any spotting for 12 months, am I now officially through the menopause and is it safe now for my DH and I to stop using protection? Thanks.

      Hi Jay If you are under 50 it is advisable to wait until you have not had any periods for 2 years before stopping contraceptives just to be on the safe side. We do hear of women going without a period for a year or more then getting them back again!

Did you know?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
