Pregnancy After Menopause

Cynthia Flynn's picture


Dear Midwife,
I am 38 years old and have been in menopause for 12 years or so. I have not had a period since Septemeber 2001. Late march of this year I started having pregnancy symptoms and called my doctor. I had two blood test done and an ultrasound. The blood test were negative, both were under 5 and ultrasound showed a cyst on my ovary.

Your "Real" Reproductive Age

The beauty of STRAW is that you can get a sense of what stage you are in based on your menstrual patterns, symptoms, and the overall characteristics of a stage, rather than just a certain hormone range or chronological age. Looking at the whole picture makes it clearer that reproductive capacity is unique for each individual.
