Your fertility naturally declines as you age. After age 40, it becomes increasingly unlikely that you will conceive. But “unlikely” does not mean “impossible!” As long as you have not reached menopause, defined as the lack of a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months, you can still become pregnant.
When you think of a woman going through menopause, you might think of symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, or mood swings. These symptoms receive a lot of attention due to the fact that there are over-the-counter and prescription drug remedies designed especially to target them.
