Can I get pregnant after a hysterectomy?

Can I get pregnant after a hysterectomy?

No: Hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus, and therefore a pregnancy cannot occur once this is done. A rare exception to this would be an ectopic pregnancy in the fallopian tube or abdomen. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when an egg is fertilized outside of the uterus and implants somewhere it isn't supposed to be. This can be serious, and is fortunately extremely rare after a hysterectomy. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant after a partial hysterectomy?

Is it possible to get pregnant after a partial hysterectomy?

No: Partial hysterectomy may mean different things to different people, but if the body of the uterus is removed, you cannot get pregnant. Partial hysterectomy usually means supracervical hysterectomy with the body of the uterus removed and the cervix left behind. Or some people incorrectly use the term to mean removing the uterus but leaving the ovaries behind. Pregnancy won't happen either way. ...Read more

Hysterectomy: That is very unusual. Do you have nausea, vomiting, fevers, abdominal pain, not passing stool? There is no reason for your abdomen to be that distended. Please see your gynecologist again for follow up soon. ...Read more

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

If I had a hysterectomy is it any kind of surgery I can have so I can get pregnant?

If I had a hysterectomy is it any kind of surgery I can have so I can get pregnant?

I'm sorry: but "no," hysterectomy is as final as it gets. Under some circumstances it may be possible to recover a woman's eggs so that after hysterectomy another woman carry the baby for her. ...Read more
