I know this may seem like an incredibly obscure questions (that's saying it nicely), but enlight of the incredible miracles of science, I'm wondering if it would be at all possible to achieve pregnancy after a "complete" hysterectomy? I'm thinking if a person can receive a heart transplant, maybe there could be a medical procedure that could implant a uterus. I know the "egg" could not come from me, but what about implanting a uterus and then having artificial insemination? I know this all sounds strange, but my fianc and I want to have a child sooooo badly (other than adoption).
Depending on your state laws, surrogacy may be an option for you, and the child could be biologically your husband's. If you have a remaining ovary you could even supply the egg, I wasnt sure if you were saying you did or did not have them removed. (complete hysterectomy does not include ovary removal, hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy or BSO includes the ovaries)
