I have had a partial hysterectomy and tubal ligation about 5 years ago. The last month and a half i been nauseous/vomiting/food cravings am i preg?
Possibly: In partial hysterectomy, the uterus is surgically removed, leaving the ovaries and cervix. The ovaries produce eggs that are reabsorbed by the body. However, in rare cases, if the woman is sexually active, the egg can be fertilized and start to grow in the abdominal area, creating an ectopic pregnancy. See a doctor and have a pregnancy test as soon as possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No.: A tubal ligation, or having your "tubes tied, " is a permanent and irreversible method of contraception. The surgery is done by cutting through the fallopian tubes so pregnancy cannot occur.

Hysterectomy: Every surgical procedure, including hysterectomy, must be evaluated in terms of risks and benefits.
