Hello Anonymous,

A woman's sex drive, high or low, has no influence on her ability to conceive. If at age 50, the woman has entered perimenopause, which is the transitional phase characterized by hormone fluctuations, there is little to no chance. During perimenopause, menstrual cycles become irregular and a woman may still have a period but no ovulate.

Does this answer your question?

So, are you saying that women at that particular age cannot have children??

That is correct. After a certain age, when a woman no longer ovulates, she cannot conceive.
