I am just wondering what are the chances of becoming pregnant after a partial hysterectomy, because I am having all the symptoms I had with my two children. I have seen on Discovery Health and read that it is possible for a baby to be concieved and implant itself on another organ or the wall of the abdomen. So what are the chances pregnancy could occur and could it be carried to term under careful monitoring or not? Can the answer be emailed to me as well I have little access to the site here at work?
Chances of becoming pregnant after a partial hysterectomy are very small. An abdominal pregnancy is possible but rare (1 in 8000 cases). In these cases, the fetus is usually abnormal (50%) and newborn death is common (90%). The motherâs death is also increased (10%).
