Can a woman get pregnant after menopause?:- There are several celebrities who are turning mothers after they crossed the age of 50. Naomi Campbell became a mother at the age of 50 and Erramatti Mangayamma turned mother at the age of 74. This is a record for being the oldest woman to give birth through IVF.

Menopause is nothing but stopping the periods which is preceded by the depletion of eggs. A natural pregnancy is not possible through menopause.
Some of the doctors said that a pregnancy is possible after menopause if a woman opts to freeze her eggs when she is younger and utilize them for pregnancy in the later years. She can also use donor eggs or a procedure of Ovarian Rejuvenation which is under experimentation. Freezing of eggs is quite popular and is a successful procedure. Top firms like Google and Facebook sponsor for their women employees to take up freezing of eggs by IVF so that they can focus on their careers first.
