Fertility in Early Menopause
By John Gibb – A fertile woman’s ovaries are producing ovums and she has normal levels of estrogen.
In early menopause, the symptoms that are most common are the hot flashes/night sweats, irregular periods, and irregular bleeding. In early menopause, hormone levels fluctuate and may make your symptoms more or less intense each month. It is possible for pregnancy to occur during early menopause.
Pregnancy and Early Menopausal Symptoms
Pregnancy may cause nausea and vomiting. Mood swings, fatigue, food cravings and/or food aversions. Muscle aches and pains and headaches also may be experienced during pregnancy. Missing periods and irregular bleeding also occur during pregnancy.
Early menopause symptoms include mood swings, increased appetite, muscle and joint pain, and chronic headaches. We can’t leave out the hot flashes and night sweats. Early menopause can also cause erratic moods, depression and sleep problems.
It is recommended that if you have any of these symptoms to get a physical exam to rule out something more serious and to see if you are in fact pregnant. You could also be starting menopause. You and your doctor can determine the cause(s) of your symptoms.

As has already been mentioned, in order for pregnancy to occur, a woman’s reproductive system must be intact. Her ovaries must still be producing ovums and she must have adequate levels of estrogen to support the pregnancy. Tracking your symptoms may help to reach the cause of your symptoms that much quicker.
Fertility is possible when adequate levels of estrogen are present. Therefore, in any month during early menopause pregnancy could occur. It’s possible that the symptoms do not add up to a pregnancy until you are examined.
Around the age of 35, a woman’s fertility begins to lessen. An early menopausal pregnancy may be planned or not. You are considered to be in menopause when you stop producing eggs and when you have not had a menstrual period for one year or more.
