syasemin - I guess you would still ovulate because your ovaries are still producing estrogen. I wish I could have kept mine, but too many cysts!

Kept both my ovaries and yes to the question. My doctor said it will function as normal only there is nowhere for it to go..(uterus and then periods).

If you have your ovaries, yes, you'll still ovulate. The eggs that are released will just sort of break down on their own over time in your abdomen rather than being expelled with your period.

Re: If you kept your ovaries do you still ovulate???

I didn't know that I would still ovulate after having the surgery. Yesterday I called the doctor in a panic because I was in so much pain so he told me to come in. After describing the pain to him, he said that I was ovulating. Boy, did I feel like an idiot!! The thought never even entered my mind. I am just glad that that's all it was!

Yep, I still feel it when I ovulate too; I get a sharp pain on my left side. It's weird to know that nothing will happen after that....my life just goes on as usual and I don't have to prepare for the pain and period mess - Yeah!
