- Question from Marcia: At 43 I have been thrown into menopause (blood test was 117). My gynecologist says I have less than 1% chance of getting pregnant and I am not using birth control. Do you agree with this?
- Answers - Jennifer Griggs, M.D., M.P.H. If you have a repeat measurement of your blood work and it continues to be interpreted that you are postmenopausal, it is indeed most likely that you are unable to conceive.
