I have what some may call a generic question, can I get pregnant after going through menopause? I mean without any egg transplant or help from the outside. I have ended my marriage and have never had any children and have been going through menopause for 3 years now, one period in the last 16 months, now I am see a fellow and am worried about the possiblilites of pregnancy. Is it possible or should I consult my gyno for some sort of birth control? Thanks in advance.

It's exceedingly unlikely, but until you have gone through menopause, there is a still a slight chance.

I would recommend a barrier method of birth control not just to prevent that off chance but also to prevent stds.

Hpv is very common and carries few symptoms for men and some strains of the virus can cause cervical cancer. A diaphragm or condom will protect you.

Take care.

You are considered completly done with menopause if you have not had a period for one full year.If you are still having your period,there is a chance.I agree with the barrier suggestion,can't be too careful.Best to you.Patty
