My new husband and I was wondering if we could do in vitro even though I have had a hysterectomy. I still have one of my two ovaries. I would love to be able to tell him that it's possible. Please let me know. Thank you.

You are able to have a child using your eggs and your husband's sperm. However because you do not have your uterus you would need to have a gestational carrier to carry the child.
