3. You Can Get Pregnant During Perimenopause

Do not rely on patchy or even seemingly non-existent periods as proof that you cannot get pregnant. Although statistically much less likely, it is not impossible – as legions of older moms with “menopause babies” can attest!

The general rule of thumb is since it’s not impossible to get pregnant while your hormones are fluctuating and you may occasionally ovulate, doctors advise using contraceptives until you have completed at least one full year without a period.
