Can I have a baby at 50?

I recently remarried after being a widow for four years. Even though I am 50 years old,  I still see my menses regularly. Although I had four children for my late husband, I still desire to have one or two for my new husband. My question is whether I can still do this at my advanced age of 50?

Even though having a baby at your age has its challenges, with good obstetrics support, you can still have a baby at old age. It is however important to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of having a baby against that of not having any more since you already have four children who by right are also your new husband’s step children.
