Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

Chances of pregnancy are less at this age.In my opinion you are undergoing menopause.Menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycles. It's diagnosed after you've gone 12 months without a menstrual period. Menopause can happen in your 40s or 50s.Menopause is a natural biological process.

You can undergo a Urine pregnancy test for confirmation.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Please use the REPLY/SEND BUTTON to reply back to me. It’s request to avoid poor/bad rating.

It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.

Waiting for your response.

Thanks.

Thanks for answering. My question is whether it is possible at this age to get pregnant after five months of arvekap injections, the last one being on August 20, before getting my first period after the five month treatment.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Less likely to get pregnant at this age.

Chances are you are going through menopause.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
