Is it possible to get pregnant after a partial hysterectomy?

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

What is the possability and risks of pregnancy occuring after both a tubal ligation with a uteral ablation! how rare is it and can it occur twice?

What is the possability and risks of pregnancy occuring after both a tubal ligation with a uteral ablation! how rare is it and can it occur twice?

Much less than 1%: Endometrial ablation is not a sterilization procedure and cannot be relied on for pregnancy prevention, though it probably reduces the risk. Most methods of tubal ligation have failure rates of less than 1%, so one can get pregnant after having both and lightning can strike twice! ...Read more

I have had a partial hysterectomy but now they are going back in to take my ovaries will it be as bad as the partial hysterectomy or will it be easier ?

I have had a partial hysterectomy but now they are going back in to take my ovaries will it be as bad as the partial hysterectomy or will it be easier ?

Ovarian surgery: It depends and how much scar tissue is present during the surgery. If bowel contents are adhered to the pelvis and ovaries ( sometimes is common after an hysterectomy) you might have pelvic pain as the prior surgery. Also it depends if its going to be an open procedure or a laparoscopic procedure. In the latter you usually recover faster. ...Read more

Galactocele: If you have been lactating all along and formed it somewhere in the course of lactation, then the answer is "yes" - you can.

Is it possible to conceive after a total hysterectomy?

Is it possible to conceive after a total hysterectomy?

Only ectopics.: After hysterectomy (removal of uterus) by definition no pregnancy can be intrauterine. In extremely rare circumstances, pregnancy can still occur if the cervix, tubes and ovaries are left in situ and/or the vaginal cuff is not closed (or a fistula develops between vagina and tube) - in such cases ectopic pregnancy can occur (life threatening). ...Read more

Will you go through menopause after a partial ovary removal/partial oophorectomy?

Will you go through menopause after a  partial ovary removal/partial oophorectomy?

Unlikely: Assuming that you have your other ovary, removal of part or all of the second ovary will not put a woman into menopause. The remaining ovary will still produce estrogen and ovulation will occur every month from the remaining ovary. I hope this helps you! ...Read more

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

I don't think so: As you may know, all of the eggs a human female will have in her lifetime are present in her ovaries at the time of her birth. The quality of them slowly degrades as she ages. Having part of the ovary removed will surely reduce the number of remaining eggs, but the quality of the remaining ones should be unchanged. ...Read more

Yes, : Yes, if you have had an ovarian cyst in the past, then you may be at risk for having another. Ovarian cysts may not produce symptoms, and you may not even know if you have one unless it is detected during a pelvic exam. Since you are having an irregular menstrual cycle, it is prudent to see your doctor, especially if you suspect an ovarian cyst. Other signs can include bloating, abdominal or pelvic cramping, painful period, nausea/vomiting and difficulty urinating. ...Read more

If I have had a unilateral oophorectomy,  does my remanining ovary  secrete ovum every month or every 2 months?

Had hysterectomy and right sided oophorectomy 7 months ago. Recently discovered enlarged left ovary and hemorrhagic cyst . Ovary needs to be removed?

Not usually: Usually that can be followed. It also depends on your medical and gyn history and why you had the previous surgery in the first place. But a cyst like that can usually be followed and as long as it is not causing you bad symptoms it probably does not need to be removed. ...Read more

Eat normal food: Same advise if you still had ovaries. What is a "combined" estrogen? Do you still have a uterus? Any ovarian tissue remaining? Is your migraine worse? Don't smoke. Keep the estrogen dose low. Eat vegetables, fruits, salads, dairy, sea food, nuts, whole grains ...Read more

Had a CT scan which showed a 4x2 mass which radilologist described as an "ovary but i had an oophorectomy 12yr ago. Us showed nothing, now what?

Confusing imaging: I'd be interested in knowing the reason for the imaging in the first place. Loops of bowel filled with stool can be very hard to tell apart from the ovary. Sometimes the opposite ovary can "migrate" to the other side and be seen there on imaging. Mostly it depends on the details of what is going on and probably repeat imaging to try to figure it all out. Feel free to ask more questions. Dr. C. ...Read more

I have a 'solid' 3.1 x 2.2 CM cyst on my left ovary. My doctor recommended a laparoscopic salpingo-oophorectomy. Is this the correct recommendation?

I have a 'solid' 3.1 x 2.2 CM cyst on my left ovary. My doctor recommended a laparoscopic salpingo-oophorectomy. Is this the correct recommendation?

YES: This is an appropriate recommendation. Once he looks at the cyst he may be able to save the ovary and take only the cyst, but it is best to plan for removal of the ovary. He could also find things that require more than removal of the ovary & tube. That is not so common and hopefully you won't have that experience. Good luck. ...Read more

I had unilateral salpingo-oopherectomy 7 months back. Now I am pregnant-6wk. I experience pain at the position of ovaries and abdomen.  Is it normal?

Early preg pain: If you are having pain in early pregnancy then you need to see an obgyn to make sure all is normal. The most important step is to have an ultrasound to confirm that there is a viable pregnancy located inside the uterus and not an ectopic pregnancy. Cramping in early pregnancy is very common and in most cases everything is ok ...Read more
