Is natural pregnancy possible with early menopause?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 02/01/2018

Yes. When ovarian failure is spontaneous and the woman has a normal karyotype, the ovary may continue to function intermittently for some time and ovulation may occur. Thus, between 5% and 10% of women achieve a natural pregnancy even with early menopause.

In many cases, these pregnancies are not intended. Women think that by not having their period they can no longer get pregnant, which is not entirely true.
