Brief Answer: VERY LOW CHANCE OF PREGNANCY. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. It is very possible to get pregnant at 48 years of age but only if your body doesn't show signs of menopause or prematurely aging ovaries. Pregnancy induced complications are quite high in this age group. However, the chances of getting pregnant at this age are greatly reduced (around 6%) and confirmation can only be obtained from your gynecologist. In summary, women's fertility rates drop significantly after age 30 and at 35, they plummet again and after 40, it starts to get pretty dismal. Hope, it will be helpful for your information. Kindly, close the discussion, if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and take care yourself. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW
