Brief Answer:
Possible, but not normally

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.

I have gone through your query. Going by the description you are post-menopausal and therefore a normal pregnancy would not be possible. However, if there are ova in your ovaries, with artificial assistive techniques and proper hormonal support, the ova may be extracted and pregnancy obtained. In short, you can still become pregnant but it is not going to be easy and would essentially involve huge costs.
