    Hello,
    Essentially, menopause occurs when the ovaries are deplete of oocytes (“eggs”) and become unresponsive to hormones, including from IVF.
    Although it may still be possible to carry a pregnancy, this would only be achievable with donor eggs/embryos.
    The success of such techniques depends on the age of the donor, as well as your general medical health.
    Regards,
    David.
