Brief Answer:
You are very unlikely to conceive

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic,

A woman is considered infertile only if she has been going through menopause for at least 12 months.Since you have not had any period for 10 months the chances of pregnancy is highly unlikely.

The chances of conceiving naturally for women in their 50s is only less than 1%.

Please be advised to use some other form of contraception like a condom for the next 2-3 months, so that you have crossed the fertility mark for sure.

Hope this answers your question
