Hey,

i am 17 and was born with no uterus, cervix of fallopian tubes. But I still get really paranoid about getting pregnant. I'm on aleese.....And I guess you could say that having no uterus is like having a historectomy. But lately i've been feeling really sick, and tired and my brests hurt really bad whenever anything comes into contact with them. I know these are all signs of being pregnant.... What do you think? :(

I am almost positive you cannot get pregnant w/o a uterus. What could be causing your symptoms might be a cyst on one of your ovaries. If I misunderstood and you don't have ovaries sorry. You might want to go to the doctor to be checked out.

It all depends. Do you still have ovaries? And is there any connection between the vagina and the ovaries? If there is merely just continuous tissue where the crevix should normally be, then you simply can not get pregnant. Because the sperm would have to somehow reach the egg that was released from the ovaries.

And even if this happened, it would have to implant somewhere. And anything other then the uterus or a small part of the fallopian tubes is rather inhospitable to implantation.

I am sorry but there is no way that you can get pregnant.Where would you carry the baby.You can have your eggs planted in someone else's uterus and they can carry the baby for you like a surrogate.Did you ever see the movie"the arlette sweltzer story"?

From a registered nurse.
The nurse's advice:
First of all, you only need ONE functioning ovary attached to a fallopian tube. If you don't have a uterus, or fallopian tubes, it is impossible to get pregnant, or even to have a ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy in the fallopian tube). Is your vagina a blind pouch, or is it open at the abdominal end? If it is blind, there is absolutely no way to get pregnant. If it's open, the sperm might find it's way to an egg, but there would be nowhere to implant. The zygote would die. No worries! Infact, you don't need to be on Birth Control pills, but always use a condom to protect against STIs!

Thank you, that was very helpful. I have everything but my uterus and seems like there are times when I feel like I am pregnant and know I can't carry a baby and then I "bleed" lightly for a few days. I have been checked but they say everything is ok. Just weird.

signs of pregancy w/o a uterus
i have all the signs of being pregant as well but i had a partial hysteroctomy but i still have my overies . I also had a tubial but i found out that just because you have a tubial does not mean that it is for surely burned off... The doctor says that it is a one and million chance that i could be but i am not sure about that after reading all of your stories and i have been pregant twice before. But i would still really like to know if i would be able to keep a baby to full term though?????
