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?

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.

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

 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

Very unlikely: If these procedures were done correctly and in a way that the tubes could not reconnect, then pregnancy is not going to happen. A partial hysterectomy lowers that possibility. If you are having pregnancy type symptoms after all this, then check with your OB-Gyn to see if there is some other problem. ...Read more

Probably hormones: You didn't mention if your ovaries were removed with the hysterectomy or if you were placed on hormone replacement therapy..These along with age related changes can affect hormone balance in your body. A hormone called prolactin can cause milk discharge, and changes in estrogen can create breast tenderness. Get a breast examination and hormone panel blood test at your doctor to evaluate properly. ...Read more
