Women still menstruating after 50 years of age are still fertile according to Dr. Aril awe Adeolu, a medical practitioner at the Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, Abuja.

Menopause he said is a situation whereby hormones responsible for the menstrual cycle is no longer present because the ovaries have exhausted their egg reserve. A woman could only enter the stage of menopause when all the eggs were exhausted and this occurs between the age of 45 and 55 years.
