Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the pregnancy chances without further evaluation. Without cervix it might be difficult to carry on with pregnancy (especially during advanced pregnancy, chances of miscarriage are possible due to lack of support similar to cervical incompetence). If your hormonal levels and ovarian function is intact, you will need to opt for surrogacy (where you can have your eggs and your partner’s sperms united/fertilized to have baby and have it grow/develop in a ‘womb on rent’ such that you can be the biological parents for the child). Another option would be of going ahead with adoption (where you are not the biological parents of the child). Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
