No: Partial hysterectomy may mean different things to different people, but if the body of the uterus is removed, you cannot get pregnant.

Will you still get vaginal sloughing after partial hysterectomy and are done with menopause?

Vaginal sloughing?: The vaginas in post menopausal women can lose some ability to stretch as estrogen declines.

I am not sure what you mean by the term "vaginal sloughing" as the vaginal lining does not "slough" off except some brief cell losses with intercourse which regenerate. ...Read more
