  • I have never heard of anyone getting pregnant after a hysterectomy...or having a period for that matter.

  • They have taken all the baby making parts out? If so, then no you cannot get pregnant unless it's an act of God.

  • I have never heard of this. I am not sure how it would work. Do you have any more information on this case?

  • If you had a hystorectomy I don't see how you could be pregnant or having a period. They removed everything unless you only had a partial. Now if you had your tubes tied it is possible to be prego...

  • If you had a full hysterectomy, you should not be having a period at all. Those organs would have been removed. If you are bleeding, I would be very concerned. If it was a partial hysterectomy, then you would have to talk to a doctor about "what's left" in there and what to expect.

  • Well, this is the FIRST case ever reported where the child survived. It is nothing more than a miracle that the mother was not seriously injured. If you had a hysterectomy, you would not have a period... the uterus has been removed. Even a partial hysterectomy the uterus is removed, only the tubes and ovaries were left behind. IF you were to become pregnant, they would deem it medically necessary to remove it, as it would damage your body and have a great chance of killing you.

    I would NOT risk it. Adopt?

  • You need to find out exactly what was removed during your hysterectomy. My grandma thought she had a complete hysterectomy. At age 68 she found out differently when she was dying of cancer.

    If you had a hysterectomy, then they should have removed your uterus. A period is shedding of the uterus lining.

  • If you've had your uterus removed then you shouldn't be bleeding at all.  See a doctor.

  • Hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus. If you are bleeding at all at anytime you need to see your gynecologist immediately. Rarely if the ovary was left in and the vaginal cuff was torn then maybe one in a billion might have a child attach to the intestines. It is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. Advice? See your doctor asap.
