Q.

What are the odds of having a partial hysterectomy and then getting pregnant?

This situation was presented to me by a friend, 40 year old woman hx of partial hysterectomy suddenly finds out she is 12 to 16 weeks pregnant but never knew.  States there is a heartbeat and its a girl.  Next day she goes to the dr and finds out she lost the baby.  There were no previous complaints of pain and or bleeding.  How likely do you think this story is?

It depends on what she considers a "partial" hysterectomy. If she still has one ovary and a uterus, she is capable of conceiving, but is she does not have a uterus, the chance of a pregnancy is zero.

Based on the detail of this story, I would seriously doubt its validity.

Another question, the person who presented me the story is very distraught over his gf losing this baby they even named her.  He was not present for any appts has not seen any labs or ultrasound pic even though she states she had an ultrasound, and has seen no positive pregnancy test basically he is going on her word.  I hate seeing him hurting like this and the circumstances surrounding are very suspicious.  He says she has 2 small incisions one by her bellybutton and one on her left side.  Is there medical documentation or anything he could ask for to prove her story?
