If you're sexually active and still having natural menstrual cycles, you may get more than you bargained for - pregnancy.

So, when is it safe to put up the protection?


Pregnancy is certainly possible in the decade before menopause. In fact, 60 percent to 70 percent of sexually active 40-year-old women will eventually conceive unless they use some method of contraception. By 45, about 10 percent to 15 percent of women are still fertile.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
