I am 47 and I haven't had my period for over a year. Should I be concerned about becoming pregnant at all? I do not want to get pregnant, I am just unsure if this is something I need to worry about.

It is quite likely that going without a menstrual period for a year at age 47 is a good indication of menopause and thus pregnancy is not a concern.

However, if you remain concerned, you can always discuss this with your gynecologist who can order hormone testing to confirm your status.
