After menopause, you can have a baby with hormone therapy and IVF. But there are more dangers. In addition to IVF, if you have not had a period in a year, you may be considered indebted. Menopause occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 when the ovaries stop producing eggs and the body loses the hormone estrogen.
But is it possible to get pregnant after menopause? And what are the risks of getting pregnant later? Understanding the effects of menopause on fertility can help people plan to have children or avoid pregnancy.
Symptoms of Menopause
Symptoms of menopause include night sweats, mood swings, skin and body changes, irregular or irregular periods. Menopause changes begin between the ages of 30 and 40, so if you are experiencing any changes in your body, it may mean that your body is preparing for menopause. But if you are thinking of getting pregnant at the age of 40, it is still possible, but unlikely.
Can you get pregnant during menopause?
Decreased fertility with age The older you are, the less likely you are to become pregnant. If you are under the age of 50, have not had a period for more than 2 years, and you want to get pregnant reliably, you should use birth control. And from the age of 50, after the last 12 months of menstruation, it is necessary to use contraceptives. You will not be able to get pregnant at the age of 55 using contraceptives, because at that age you will have menopause.
Can menopause be reversed?
Menopause can be reversed by restoring ovarian activity in premenopausal women, but only temporarily. Studies show that menstruation in postmenopausal women occurs within three months when they are treated with their own PRP (platelet-rich plasma). PRP contains growth factors and hormones.
How to prevent menopause and get pregnant?
Menopause can be prevented:
By Using Contraception
Hormonal contraceptives affect hormone levels and can mask peripheral menopausal symptoms. Birth control pills and birth control vaginal rings can be used if you are over 40 years old, have no health problems, are healthy, and do not smoke. However, another type of contraception is from the age of 50. Progesterone tablets can be used up to the age of 55, after which there is no need to use any method of contraception.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Mirana coil can be used during menopause. The coils are inserted at age 45 or can be used for contraception up to age 55, to reverse menopause, and as part of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Other options include birth control implants, which are used before menopause. Non-hormonal options include copper intrauterine devices and condoms.
When to take a pregnancy test during menopause
Many of the symptoms of menopause are very similar to the symptoms of pregnancy. If you are pregnant, you may experience symptoms such as mood swings, sleep problems, fatigue and headaches, and the same will happen during menopause. If you are sexually active and experience symptoms of pain, vomiting, and frequent urination, it is important that you have a pregnancy test. There are home pregnancy tests that measure the levels of the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotropin in the urine. If it is present at a high level, then you are pregnant.
What are the risks of perimenopausal pregnancy?
Although there are always some risks associated with peri-menopausal pregnancy, it is believed that pregnant women during peri-menopause are at higher risk for a variety of complications and should be monitored closely. It is strongly recommended that you talk to your doctor if you are planning a peri-menopausal pregnancy, as women over the age of 40 have a 50% chance of miscarriage. Pregnancy after the age of 35 is classified as late pregnancy because of some of the risks involved. It includes:
- Late pregnancy causes high blood pressure and gestational diabetes.
- Increases the chances of a cesarean section.
- Complications during childbirth.
- Genetic changes in children.
Fertility of women with age
A woman is most fertile at the age of 20 and her fertility decreases with age, especially when she reaches the age of 35. Here are some statistics about postmenopausal pregnancy.
- Healthy women in their 30s have a 20% chance of getting pregnant.
- At age 40, a woman has a 5% chance of getting pregnant.
- By age 51, most women are in menopause and are unable to conceive or successfully conceive.
After menopause, you will be able to have a baby with the help of hormone therapy and IVF. But there are many dangers. In addition to IVF, if you have not had a period for more than a year, you may be considered premature.
