Can I get pregnant after menopause?

ANSWER

No, but you need to make sure that you truly are in menopause, which means you haven't had your period for an entire year. Your doctor can do a test to see if you are in menopause. Until you know for sure, keep using contraception if you don't want to get pregnant.
