No. For example female mice, parakeets, and some beetle species stop being able to reproduce in later life. However, a very extended lifespan after menopause is rare: apart from humans, the best examples are certain whales and dolphins. For instance, killer whales stop reproducing between 40 and 50, but over half of them live longer – up to 90 years in some cases. The reasons for this are still being researched.
