still have ovaries? Where do the eggs go?

Hi,

I was curious, I had my surgery on 3/25/03 and I was fortunate enough to keep my ovaries, but what I just realized was, "What happens to the eggs, if anything?" Are we still ovulating, will I still have PMS, is everything the same, just without the obvious tumor and monthly period?
I never thought to ask, until know. This is the time of the month when I would probably be having the dreaded PMS and the ovulating, it is tender and achy in my ovary area and I am having the usual symptoms that I had prior to my surgery, but without the period.

So, does anyone know?

Thank you,

Heather

Hi

Yeap, we still ovulate (assuming we did before, anyway), and the eggs are just reabsorbed by the body.

If you had PMS before surgery, the chances are you'll still have some symptoms; my issue (well..one of the many ) was that I was anovulatory anyway for most of my life! All that unopposed estrogen running rampant...rather like me in this thread actually!

But anyway. That's about it!

Many warm wishes,

Tess

(((Heather)))))),

You will ovulate until you go through what would have been menopause( when your ovaries stop producing eggs) in the mean time your eggs will just be reabsorbed into your body. They are just 1 cell so you wouldn't even see them without a microscope. You will do everything but have a period . Some report less severe PMS as time goes by post op.

Hope this helps,

I remember asking my doc what happened to my eggs after I got my tubes tied, I had visions of looking like a salmon with eggs coming out of my mouth! LOL He said they just reabsorb.
