What is a Hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the uterus, and in some cases, other reproductive organs like the cervix, ovaries and fallopian tubes. This procedure is usually considered when dealing with severe medical conditions such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, cancer or persistent pelvic pain.

There are various types of hysterectomies, each differing in the extent of organ removal:

  • Total Hysterectomy: Removes the entire uterus and the cervix.

  • Partial Hysterectomy: Removes only a portion of the uterus, leaving the cervix intact.

  • Radical Hysterectomy: Removes the uterus, cervix and surrounding tissue.

Can You Be a Surrogate After a Hysterectomy?

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to become a surrogate after you’ve undergone a hysterectomy. The removal of the uterus means there is no longer a viable place for a baby to develop during a pregnancy. This makes it not possible for those to become a surrogate after a hysterectomy.
