sex & menopause

My Dr had me on the pill until age 49--around age 48 I skipped periods and when I did barely spotted...I think using the pill kept me from going through menopause. I am 50 now have been off the pill for 7 months--since going off it I have not spotted or had a period..would it be safe to have unprotected sex (with my husband)without the fear of getting pregnant? I feel as though I have gone through menopause--no more night sweats or hot flashes or other symptoms of it.

If it were me, I'd play it safe and use protection. Although the BCP may have been masking menopause, you have to go a full year without a period (and not on BCP) to be considered menopausal.
