I had a hysterectomy last July also I got pregnant on every birth control I tried and I've tried everything on the market I got pregnant with twins on an IUD and the Ortho Evra and using the morning after pill I had a tubal ligation in 2005 and got pregnant the following year So since I had the hysterectomy I healed fine I quit menstrating, but now almost a year later I find myself tired all the time nausea vomiting I'm lactating and in the last few months I've gained 45 pounds I walk everyday and eat good and I've never gained weight like that even when I was pregnant and it's all in my stomache I look pregnant and people ask all the time. Is it possible for me to get pregnant I have no uterus but I have my ovaries but I had my tubes tied so how is it possible or could it be an even more serious problem?

Hysterectomy Answer A11866
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am really glad to help you out.

It is not possible to become pregnant after the hysterectomy and the tying of the tubes.

It is likely due to the excessive consumption of calories and lack of adequate exercise.

You see, whenever we consume more than we burn, the extra amount of fat gets deposited in the stomach area only.

Take as little of refined sugar as possible and do brisk walking for at least 45 min daily.

However, I’ll still suggest getting an ultrasound of the abdomen done to rule out any other possibility. Please do consult a physician for the same.

I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
