Can You Get Pregnant With No Uterus
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Absent uterus: A normal pregnancy requires a uterus. Ovaries can produce eggs, but you would have to donate your egg to a surrogate female to have your own genetic child. This is similar to the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF), since a younger surrogate can have your fertilized egg implanted in her womb. Talk to an infertility specialist for details. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: I'm not sure how you know that your uterine wall is thin? That typically isn't a diagnosis that is given without very detailed imaging, such as a mri. Having said that maybe you had surgery previously and doctor told you it was thin? Regardless, uterus is very strong and likely can hold a pregnancy even if it's 'thin' as you say. See doctor for more information, though, so you can understand. ...Read more
Cannot tell you...: I'm afraid that is not enough information to answer your question. Depends on whether you know this based on a subjective comment during an exam or if you had an ultrasound that showed an abnormal uterus. And even then, would need to know about the rest of your reproductive organs (tubes, ovaries, etc.). I'd suggest to make an appt and discuss this with the doctor that informed you of it. ...Read more
No: A prolapsed uterus would really have no effect on the ability to get pregnant. If you are speaking for yourself, the difficulty in attaining pregnancy may be the age related changes of ovarian function past the age of forty. Pregnancy rates at 44 years of age are low which is fortunate or unfortunate, depending upon the woman's point of view. ...Read more
Yes: Unless you have a genetic problem like turner's mosaic, the size of the uerus isn't too important. If you have a uterine anomaly (like bicornuate, or septate) this may cause problems, but not typically with conceiving. If you are asking for yourself (and are 40 years old, as your profile indicates) then your age may be the biggest stumbling block to conceiving. ...Read more
It isn't.: Having a retroverted (tipped or tilted) uterus does not effect fertility. I can't tell you how many women over the years have come to me saying that someone told them they can't get pregnant because of a tilted uterus, and here they are pregnant. If you are having trouble getting pregnant, you need to be evaluated for more likely causes. ...Read more
Yes: but speak with your OB-GYN for a more accurate answer since he/she has examined you! ...Read more
Depends: It depends upon what you mean by not normal. Check w/your gyn for more information. ...Read more
Is it harder to get pregnant with an introvetrted uterus since it's not positioned properly and what's the average timing it can take vs nomad uterus?
Cervical insufficiency?: It's not completely clear to me what you mean by a week uterus. My best guess is that you're talking about cervical insufficiency, where the cervix starts to shorten and dilate painlessly in the mid trimester. In this case, obtaining pregnancy isn't the problem, but rather maintaining pregnancy once conception occurs is the issue. This is normally treated with a cerclage suture placed around the cervix between 13 and 15 weeks of pregnancy. ...Read more
