Is hysterectomy reversible?
Fiona Caine is here to help if you have a relationship, sexual, marriage or family problem.
Four years ago I was happily married with three children.
I had problems with heavy periods, so my doctor suggested I should have a hysterectomy.
Now I’m divorced and with a lovely man who wants to marry me — but he wants children and I don’t know if I can.
When I spoke to my doctor he said it wasn't possible but is there some way I can have it reversed? CM
FIONA SAYS: NO, BUT TALK THROUGH YOUR OPTIONS
I'm so sorry that this wasn't explained to you properly, but a hysterectomy means that your womb has been completely removed.
Now there is nowhere for a baby to grow.
You need to think about your future relationship with your new man and talk to each other openly about how important it is to him to have a child of his own.
There are other options: adoption or fostering, for example.
You could even consider the option of using a surrogate mother but, if you do, seek professional help rather than doing it yourselves
