Can I donate my eggs to a family member if I only have 1 ovary, after a partial hysterectomy?

Can I donate my eggs to a family member if I only have 1 ovary, after a partial hysterectomy?

Technically yes: If you have a functioning ovary, then technically you still have viable eggs. It is unlikely that a reproductive endocrinologist would recommend using eggs from a 40 year old due to the increased risk for genetic anomalies and the decreased likelihood of a successful transfer with the eggs fo that age. Since the eggs are as old as the donor, egg donors are usually much younger. ...Read more

I'm 48, had partial hysterectomy, interested to have my eggs harvested. Possible? Chances of the eggs/baby being healthy? I'm looking for surrogate

I'm 48, had partial hysterectomy, interested to have my eggs harvested. Possible? Chances of the eggs/baby being healthy? I'm looking for surrogate

Had a full hysterectomy 4 years ago and one of my ovaries has grown back? Does it produce eggs and is there a possibility could I get pregnant

Extremely unlikely: By full hysterectomy you must mean a hysterectomy and bilateral salpingoophorectomy. That means both tubes and ovaries were also removed. Ovaries do not grow back. Maybe it was not a "full" hysterectomy. If you still have an ovary and you are not menopausal it may still ovulate. See your doctor to discuss this issue as it really depends on your actual surgery. ...Read more
