Welcome to ehealthforum,
Without uterus (after hysterectomy), it is not possible to carry pregnancy. If your ovaries are functional and, if you are having ovulation, then you can discuss with your treating gynecologist about option of IVF combined with 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). Another option would be of going ahead with adoption (where you are not the biological parents of the child).
