If you had a hysterectomy, did you keep your ovaries?

Yes. Whether I'd managed to keep them was the first question I croaked out through my intubated throat when I woke up. Surgeon thought endo was likely, and I signed the paperwork before I went under to remove them if they had endo on them.

Very relieved they didn't have to go. I have ADHD but am nowhere near retirement age, and one little-known fact about ADHD is that menopause makes it a zillion times worse. And I probably would not have been an HRT candidate due to terrible family history.

That said, it's a little frustrating that I will continue to have severe PMDD till natural menopause. You can't win them all.

I opted to have mine removed! Good thing I did, as my Dr. told me, once I was in my hospital room, that while doing Surgery she discovered cysts on my fallopian tubes.

I kept both of mine. Glad I got the hysterectomy done. Was really nervous and skeptical at first but I feel "free" now.

Yes I kept them. I am only 41 and had not started menopause yet and had surgery due to recurring fibroid and misplaced IUD.

I kept both. Docs said if endometriosis was too bad on them they would take them, but didn't want to take them because of my age.

No. I actually had 1 ovary/tube removed 4 yrs prior to my hysterectomy due to damage from a large dermoid cyst surrounding it. At the time that my doc n i decided on a hysterectomy, another large dermoid cyst was surrounding my remaining ovary, so we left nothing behind. They never functioned correctly anyway, so I was ok with my decision.

Both of my healthy, normal, premenopausal ovaries were removed.

One ovary required a cystectomy, but I got to keep both of my ovaries, thankfully. I'm 48 with zero menopause symptoms, and I'm happy to put that off for as long as possible!

Kept both of my ovaries, for now. Doc didn't want to take them due to risk factors with HRT.
