Getting pregnant after partial hysterectomy ?

User Profile
I had a partial hysterectomy I has intercourse with my partner in Nov. 09. I started having bad mood swings, cravings, some neausa, sleeping, and very tired.Also a little cramping with stomach hurting real bad. I did have some bleeding earlier.Jan 8 2010 I went to use the restroom and I had a bunch of sticky fluid on my tissue. I wipe again and there was a reddish orange someting on this tissue. I flused it in the tiolet. Right after that I laid down and felt horrible and cramping. I don't have a diease or anything like that. It was that I got pregnant and did not keep it because I have no way of holding it. The strange thing is that he was also tired and eating alot. We do not live together and he was not aware I was going through an of this. What are the odds of this?

Hysterectomy Answer A9194

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. A partial hysterectomy is when the uterus is removed and the ovaries and the cervix are left behind. Pregnancy can result after a partial hysterectomy because eggs are released by the ovaries which have been left behind but this pregnancy is usually ectopic in nature and not a viable pregnancy. You can get your HCG levels estimated to clear the doubts. HCG hormone is released only in pregnancy and its levels are raised after a miscarriage also.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For an exact diagnosis, you are advised to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
