Does hysterectomy affect fertility?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 01/17/2020

The answer is yes. Hysterectomy, or removal of the uterus, is an irreversible surgical procedure that blocks menstrual cycles. For this reason, a woman's chance of becoming pregnant is virtually zero.

The uterus is the necessary organ for the implantation of the embryo to achieve a gestation. If this organ is missing, the woman will not be able to get pregnant naturally or by conventional assisted reproduction techniques.
