Yes! I had my ovaries removed due to cancer 3 years ago, I'm now 4 months pregnant using a donor egg. If your seriously looking at this I would recommend a Spanish clinic they are much better than English ones and considerably cheaper..
Hello, My ovaries were also removed when I was 21 I have a child that is a teen and I am 33 now and want to have another child. So my question is beingthat I dont have my own eggs can I get a donor egg and possibly still be able to carry? I do have my uterus.

I have had premature ovarian failure patients who have successfully breastfed. The main hormone driving milk let-down is prolacting, which is released by the pituitary gland as a reflex to suckling. A couple of patients have had low volume of breast milk, and we have been able to improve this using a medicine called metoclopramide if required. Estrogen levels even in women without ovarian failure are actually quite low immediately post-partum. I hope things work out!
I know that postmenopausal women are able to breastfeed. My understanding of breastfeeding is that it happens as a result of nipple stimulation, and although the hormones secreted from the placenta are the easiest ways to kickstart it, adoptive mothers and even the occasional man have been able to stimulate their nipples into producing milk without hormones. I don't think your oophorectomy should keep you from breastfeeding unless you are on hormone therapy that would endanger your child and your mammary glands have not been damaged.
