MOLNER, M.D. Dear Dr. Molner: I am 49 and have not menstruated for a little over a year. Can you rrrrrrryrrx. I tell me if I can become pregnant? Mrs. VV.T. And similar letters from women who are 48, 51, 52, 56, 47 and you name the age. The question of pregnancy after about 45 is bugbear to many women, and they want somebody namely me, a good deal of the time to give them a positive answer. It isn't solely a question ' of age, although age has a good deal to do with it. There are authentic cases of women from 50 to 52 bearing healthy babies, but it doesn't happen often. There have been other cases in which women were not sure of their age.

There have been still other cases in which women, claiming to be past 50, have admitted on careful quizzing that they were younger than they said possibly the one circumstance in which women seem to be tempted to fib about their age in that ai rection! As women approach 50, fer tility is reduced, so pregnancy is unlikely. After 50, chance of conception is negligible (al though not impossible. Rather than trying to judge by age alone, the better way is to be guided by cessation of menstrual periods. Since some, although not many, women stil menstruate at the age of 50 or 52, there may be some chance, although small that they can become pregnant. But it is likewise generally accepted that when menstrua tion has ceased, when there has Spoil her for Christmas with a gift from... weir mm 116 South Polafox U 14 Kt yellow gold enameled floral ring, has 13 diamonds with a total weight of 64 points. $450. not been a period for a year, pregnancy is so unlikely as to be considered beyond expectation. No one can say that it is impossible, because some rare and extraordinary exception might occur, but I don t know that it has ever happened. And that, I think, is the most posi tive answer that can be given to this frequent question. Dear Dr. Molner: All my records show that I have brown eyes but about two months ago I noticed that they are mostly blue. What would cause a person's eyes to change color? L.G. Changing eye color is not common but it can occur. The cause usually is a type of iritis (the iris of the eye being affected). I suggest t h a t you have a detailed examination by an eye specialist.- Note to P. C: Pressure inside the eye can vary but 20 is regarded as the upper limit of normal. After that, one suspects glaucoma. Your reading, at the upper limit, led to the warning of "borderline glaucoma." Your medication brought the pressure down, and it stayed down even after medication was stopped. Thus you have reason to be thankful but glaucoma can be treacherous, so if I were you, I would have the pressure checked at, say, six-month intervals. Dr. Molner welcomes all reader mail, but regrets that, due to the tremendous volume received daily, he is unable to answer individual letters.
