  • Sorry ladies you are incorrect.. Yes it is very possible to get pregnant after a partial as long as you still have ovaries you can still get pregnant.. It is called an abdominal pregnancy..

    Here is just some of the article of many you can read up on...

    If a woman has undergone a partial hysterectomy, the ovaries will continue to produce and release eggs. While most of the time the eggs are either reabsorbed by the body or fertilized and result in a self-abortion before the mother realizes she is pregnant, this is not always the case.

    In very rare cases, a woman's body will allow the fertilized egg to attach to other organs in the abdomen or the walls of one the fallopian tubes. Once the egg has attached, the fetus will grow just as it would inside of the uterus. With the hormones in tact the fetus can and in some cases will survive undetected.

  • You can't carry a child with no uterus. Where is the baby going to be? You could have a tubal,but that would result in needing an abortion

  • They said that the baby could attach to an organ or to the part of the tube that was left in.

  • There have been a few cases that a baby has developed outside of the uterus. The placenta has attached to other other organs. It is extremely rare and dangerous.

  • Just google abdominal pregnancy or type the words pregnant without uterus.... It is very dangerous for the mother if it happens and the baby starts to develop..

  • Ok,I'm trying to understand this. Wouldn't your cervix be sewn up if there is no uterus there? They're not just going to leave a gaping hole in your abdomen. The sperm would have to travel through the empty space where the uterus was and meet up with an egg that would be floating around in that space
