Hello, I'm Ted Manos MD, board certified obgyn. I have to answer your question with "I don't know". It should start getting irregular and finally stop as your age is around when that happens. I've seen periods continue until age 55 in some cases. I've never seen anyone pregnant at age 49 so that's good.
