Can I still ovulate?

I am 4 weeks post op and kept both ovaries. I have been feeling good most of the time with a few pain days here and there after the first week. I have started getting small crampy pain like ovulating on my left and right side. Is it possible to still ovulate even with everything else removed? Pain nothing that a motrin cannot handle.

Re: Can I still ovulate?

Ovulation is a function of the ovaries, not the uterus. So since you kept your ovaries, yes you should ovulate each month and can continue to experience PMS. Ovulating does let you know your ovaries are still working which means you should have the hormones you need, the whole purpose of keeping them!
