It may seem that when you are in the perimenopause that the chances of getting pregnant are relatively low, but medical statistics show otherwise. It is clear without a doubt that if you are still having your period regardless of their irregularity then you are indeed actually still ovulating. So even though you are in the beginnings of your menopause years, you still have a possibility of getting pregnant
The facts state
Menopause in the recent years has opened up many women to enjoy their sex lives. Due to the elimination of having to use protection in order to prevent pregnancy, the sexual inclination has had a higher rave. So when it comes to pregnancy during menopause then the emotions can be mixed. Some women feel that they are too old to have children and the stress of having a pregnancy during menopause can be increased.
If you find out that you are pregnant during menopause then you might feel that you don’t have many options available to you. This is not true, some women opt to terminate their pregnancies as they know or feel that they cannot cope with the stress related to pregnancy. Pregnancy during menopause is indeed an emotional time. Firstly your body is going through the changes of menopause and then the pregnancy has also its own demands on the body.
However on the flip side of the coin some women are very happy to find out that they are pregnant during menopause. They feel like women as they did in their youthful years. It means that they can still do their duties as women and that can also prove to provide them with a glow.
A partnership co-operation
Pregnancy during menopause should be a partnership. This means you and your partner need to discuss what you intend to do. Be open enough to listen to your partner’s suggestions and even if your emotions are flaring don’t let that stop you from saying what you need to say in order to handle the pregnancy in the best way possible. Pregnancy during menopause is another challenge that can only be faced through proactive cooperation.
There is no need to point fingers and accuse each other. Instead it should be seen as a chance to hone in on those communication skills that you have accumulated over the years. While your emotions can be all over the place, you will always need to do what’s best for the baby and for yourself. Don’t feel pressured to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable in any way.
