Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Menopause is the end of menstruation and the ability to conceive (get pregnant).
It is usually a gradual or slow process.

If you have not had a period for 4 years then you are likely in menopause and would not be able to conceive or get pregnant with unprotected intercourse.

If you want to make sure you are in menopause then there are blood tests that can be done to check the level of your hormones. You can speak to your doctor, if possible, about getting these tests done to completely make sure there is no chance of pregnancy.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

HI

If she went through menopause and had hot flashes and the other symptoms ( dry vaginal area, problems sleeping, hot flashes, mood swings, breast pain) that are found in menopause then you do not need to use protection.So if she had menopausal symptoms, you can go ahead without protection

If she did not have any of the symptoms of menopause- NO hot flashes, no Mood changes, no breast pain , no vaginal dryness then it would be best to do the blood tests first to make sure she is in menopause.
If the blood tests say that she is in menopause then you do not need to use protection.
Please feel free to ask anything else

Yes, if she has the symptoms of menopause then you do not have to use any protection. She will not get pregnant once she has been through menopause.
