Menopause and Pregnancy - You Have to Be Crazy

Just A Little Bit Menopausal

It has been said you can not be a little bit pregnant. That is a true statement but you can be a little bit menopausal. If you have missed your period for six consecutive months and are experiencing the symptoms of menopause like insomnea, hot flashes, and mood swings, you definitely are going through the body changes but you are not to the point of post menopausal so it is still possible to become pregnant. The only way to guarantee that you do not become pregnant prior to 12 consecutive months without a menstrual cycle would be to continue to take birth control or have your man get a vesectomy.

Now You Tell Me

So take a test and be sure if you think you may be pregnant. If you discover that you are indeed pregnant, then make a thorough and careful decision, just like you would have to do if you got pregnant when you were younger. You must take into consideration your health history, your financial situation and whether you have had children already. If you have never had children and are over 40, the chances are huge that you will have a miscarriage. Your body is under the tremendous strain of menopause. Menopause AND pregnancy might really hurt your body permanently, as well as the health of the baby. The choice is yours, depending upon where you live and what your religious attitudes to abortion are.

It is very rare for both a mother and a baby to survive a pregnancy during menopause. If you are in very good health and previously have had children, your chances are better for making a full pregnancy but they are far from good. Be realistic and weigh all of your options. A pregnancy during menopause can greatly damage your body permanently if you even survive it. Your body is not as young as it once was. Prognosis: Grim

The only way to deal with menopause and pregnancy is to not get pregnant during menopause or pre-menopause (also called "perimenopause"). Unless you are Ms. Olympia and have more kids than you've had hot dinners, menopause and pregnancy tends to end in heartbreak. But this baby could also kill you. I'm not trying to scare you - I'm telling you the truth so you can make the best decision for you.
