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 more

Do you have to have a hysterectomy after having a tubal ligation?

A hysterectomy would typically only be performed if there was a disease process within the uterus. ...Read more

Hi I have had a tubal ligation in 2012 but over the last year or so my monthly cycle has been increasing in severity. What is the recommended age for a hysterectomy or are there other options to stop the cycle altogether Thank you?

Need Gyn evaluation : A careful Gyn evaluation (medical history, complete physical-gynecological exam, pelvic sonogram, Pap test...and perhaps blood test) should lead to a diagnostic cause of the "increasing severity of your monthly cycles" and hopefully its medical treatment. Quite a few options exist; and unless a clear surgical indication is found, a hysterectomy should be a last resort for abnormal uterine bleeding ...Read more

Had a tubal ligation and it was difficult because of all the scar tissue from trauma. They had to use a scope. How dangerous would a hysterectomy be?

Hysterectomy: Every surgical procedure, including hysterectomy, must be evaluated in terms of risks and benefits. The determination must be made by you, your ob/gyn and your loved ones, on an individual basis. Internal adhesions (scarring) adds some risk to the procedure; however, if you have uterine cancer, or severe bleeding, the real benefits will still very likely outweigh the potential risks. ...Read more
