Hello Rosnetty, Thank you for the question.
A woman's ability to become pregnant is not determined by the presence or absence of a spleen. In order for a woman to become pregnant, it is necessary to have healthy reproductive organs and good reproductive hormones. In addition, the quality of a partner's sperm also determines whether a pregnancy can occur or not because pregnancy will occur when the sperm meet and fertilize a woman's egg.
The spleen is an organ that functions to destroy old / damaged red blood cells, stores white blood cells and platelets, and helps the body's defense system against bacterial infections. A person who does not have a spleen (for example, because it is removed) will have an increased risk of infection. Therefore, patients who have had their spleen removed are usually advised to receive vaccinations against several diseases. Antibiotics are also generally started earlier when adult sufferers have an infection. Please discuss this condition with your surgeon.
Hope this information is helpful.
