The uterus is the womb where the baby grows. You can release eggs now but they can not get fertilized or implant so don't worry about that. It is impossible for you to ever become pregnant. ...Read more

Can I possible get pregnant after a tubal ligation and a partial hysterectomy?

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
