    I have always had painful periods due to fibroids. Now at 52, pain persists on the regular monthly cycle, but menstrual flow is not present. Do I still need to be concerned about becoming pregnant? A baby at 52 is less than desirable. Can pregnancy occur without the menatrual flow? How would I know if I'm still producing viable eggs?

      Hi Mary Getting period pains without a period is really common as you approach the menopause. Although your hormones may be falling there is still a monthly cycle for a good while, the hormones may not be high enough to trigger a bleed but can still cause all the usual monthly symptoms. You may find taking a magnesium supplement 200mg twice a day can help with the pain. You are not considered safe from pregnancy until you have not had any periods for two years so it is wise to continue with some from of protection until then.
