can you get pregnant without having a period? I have not had a period since June 2009 and maybe I had not had one for a year or so prior to that one can I get pregnant under these circumstances?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

You can become pregnant only if you ovulate. Loss of periods but ovulation continues: this scenario is seen in Asherman’s syndrome following dilatation and curettage. Also genital tuberculosis could be a cause. In both such cases pregnancy is less likely.

Generally loss of period is accompanied by loss of ovulation. Hence a woman cannot become pregnant. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. The cause of no periods for a year needs to be investigated at your age. Hope this helps. Take care!
