Yes, it is possible. There are other things could cause your period to stop such as pregnancy (if you've had exposure) or a significant weight loss.

If menstrual bleeding has stopped due to menopause, then no. You can no longer get pregnant.

Take a pregnancy test and/or see your doctor to know for sure.

What does bleeding after menopause mean?

It depends on how far after menopause that the bleeding is occurring. If it is close to menopause, then you might be in peri-menopause instead, where you have a rare period every now and then. If it is close to when it stopped and follows the same sort of pattern, I would not be alarmed. However, if you are bleeding all the time or are concerned, or it doesn't seem like a period, you should see an Ob/Gyn.
