I had 2 children by c-section when I had my daughter in 08 I had my tubes tied , in 2011 I had to have emergency surgery they removed my right ovary and tube and took almost all if my left ovary. I've been spotting 3 days before actually starting my cycle and have been very hungry and tired. Is there any way I could be pregnant after having a tubal and partial hysterectomy and how would I know for sure being that I'm still having my period? Thanks

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If one side ovary and fallopian tube has been intact, then chances of pregnancy resulting are possible. Chances of ectopic pregnancy are also possible. If there has been hysterectomy done (removal of uterus), then chances of pregnancy can be ruled out. Since you have been having your periods, it would suggest that your uterus is intact, and hence chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely as suggested by your recent symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance.
Take care.
