Welcome to ehealthforum.
In surgery for hysterectomy, lower part of the uterus (cervix) is usually removed (as in total hysterectomy) but may sometimes be left in place (as in partial, or supracervical, hysterectomy). It is not possible to carry pregnancy after hysterectomy. If you are planning for pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and discuss your pregnancy plans and probable treatment options. If you have functional ovaries, you can discuss with your treating gynecologist about option of getting IVF done and surrogacy (where you can have your eggs and your partnerâs sperms united/fertilized to have baby and have it grow/develop in a âwomb on rentâ such that you can be the biological parents for the child), or you can opt for adoption (where you are not the biological parents of the child).
