Well obviously the chances of conception by natural ways go on diminshing with every passing year do to obvious reasons . However the good news is that IVF( in vitro fertilization) after menopause has been successfully demonstrated.

Postmenopausal eggs are no longer viable, but there are still two ways you can take advantage of IVF. You can use eggs you had frozen earlier in life, or you can use fresh or frozen donor eggs.

You will also need hormone therapy to prepare your body for implantation and to carry a baby to term.

When compared with premenopausal women, postmenopausal women are more likely to experience both minor and major complications of pregnancy after IVF.

Depending on your overall state of health, IVF after menopause may not be an option for you. It’s worth consulting with a fertility expert who has worked with postmenopausal women.

Let me know if you have any more queries
