Ovulation during menopause

Question:

My question pertains to the ovaries and the actual menstrual period. When you go through menopause and your period stops, is it possible for your ovaries to continue to function? And, if they are still functioning, does this mean that you can still become pregnant? Or that you haven't completed the menopausal phase? My mother is 67 years of age and her one ovary is still functioning; the doctor is talking about removing it.

Answer:

We've never heard of a person being "through" menopause while having a functioning ovary – the two should be a contradiction. But we're not physicians. If you have questions, you really should speak with your mother's doctor.
