I'm glad to hear you are in the place where you wish to have another life for your family. However without a uterus you cannot carry a child. Despite the contrary opinion by one single person on this forum, you cannot get pregnant withou a uterus either.

Good luck to you whatever you decide to do!

Teressa,
I know your post was in 2009---did your pregnancy go well? This is my 4th pregnancy without a uterus. I'm at 6 weeks. My first three times without the uterus didn't survive. The longest pregnancy was 5 months. They just stopped moving and calcified.
Has anyone had a full term?

To emm- If you do not have a uterus, you cannot carry a baby to term. A partial hysterectomy is where they remove the uterus and one ovary or the uterus and the cervix. A radical or full hysterectomy involves removing the uterus, both ovaries and the cervix. While there are very few extremely rare and dangerous cases of extrauterine pregnancies reported, I highly suggest you don't even attempt this. And it is highly unlikely to happen anyway. If you have an extrauterine pregnancy, the placenta will attach itself to any organ it can. This can kill you. The placenta can detach from whatever organ it is getting its blood supply to nourish the fetus and cause massive internal bleeding. There are other options for you, such as surrogacy and adoption. Best of luck to you.
To teressa- If you truly had a partial hysterectomy and are pregnant, where did the fetus attach itself? A partial hysterectomy involves removing the uterus and sometimes one ovary or the cervix. But always the uterus. If you have had just an ovary or your cervix removed, then you did not have a hysterectomy. If you indeed had your uterus removed, you will need to go to your doctor ASAP to find out where the placenta is attached, as said before, this can be life-threatening for you.

Pregnancy without a Uterus?

When I was still in medical school we had a very unusual case come to Groote Schuur Hospital. A woman had an ectopic preganancy in her liver. Tasty.

Now for those of you who don't know... or for some sicko Intern-like reason, are interested... An ectopic pregnancy simply means a pregnancy that occurs outside the uterus. Almost 100% of these will never survive as most ectopics implant into the tiny fallopian tube. At 8 weeks, the fallopian tube bursts as it cannot contain the growing fetus. Then, it's surgery and the usual save-her-life type stuff. Remove the tube, decrease fertility - but keep the patient. A delicate balancing act, no?

But, there is an exception every rule - sometimes - very rarely, the egg retrogradely moves out the fallopian tube into the abdomen and implants itself onto the bowel or peritoneal lining or, in this case, the liver...

This woman, with the help of some amazing Obstetricians and surgeons (to save her life and stuff) delivered a healthy baby girl.

And the point of the tale...

It just proves that you don't need to have a uterus to have a pregnancy... You know it's coming!

If its Gods will for a woman to have a baby ( like Mary), then anything is possible.
If a virgin can become pregnant, than anything I possible. Ask God!! Not the Internet audience if you want the right answer

hiiiiii
first of all after hysterectomy there is no chance of carrying a baby because the foetus should grow and nurish in the uterus. And after 45 years a baby is some what difficult due to harmone changes.
my opinion is to go for a test tube baby that will be your baby because one of you ovary is working and the egg and ur husband sperm will be fertilised in the lab at optimum conditions .but only problem is that you people should find an women to carry your baby for rest of the time without any problem.
i would suggest it.

Okay, you CAN get pregnant after having your uterus removed. My mother in law is 7 months prgenant and her had hers removed 10 years ago. It's not safe, but IS possible.

Concerned
So, if you don't have a uterus that means, no periods and no children. Unless I have one egg in my ovarie I can use for surrogacy? Will I still be able to enjoy sex or will it be uncomfortable? Oh gosh...why me? Lol
