Want hysterectomy, periods are super painful - Dr keeps mentioning removing only ovary

She said since cyst was removed from it, if we take out uterus I won’t need it and it will be useless cuz the uterus supplies blood to ovary, and that I should remove cervix since I had one abnormal pap when I was 18 when I was pregnant, I’m 33 now and all since have been normal. I don’t want ablation I want uterus out and to keep my ovary and my cervix, is it true my ovary will stop working if I have uterus removed? I thought I would add that I had an ovary removed when I was 13 so I only have one ovary

Re: Dr keeps mentioning removing only ovary

If the ovary is healthy then there is no reason to remove it. The ovary has its own blood supply besides the supply from the uterus. Keeping it would provide many health benefits as it should continue to work for years to come considering your age. Removing the tube would be a good idea since ovarian cancer can start there. Same goes for your cervix, if its healthy no reason to get rid of it.

Re: Dr keeps mentioning removing only ovary

I had my tubes removed back in 2017. She was trying to say that my LH hormone and my FSH hormone we’re off but considering what phase I was in my cycle they were completely normal. So I’m going to see about getting a second opinion

Re: Dr keeps mentioning removing only ovary

even if you were in menopause, your remaining ovary still provides you with small amounts of beneficial hormones. removing your ovary will put you in surgical menopause. i personally would never use a dr with this opinion. get multiple opinions, let your surgeon know that you want to keep your healthy ovary and cervix. any dr. that tells you that you don't need either is either misinformed or doesn't know how to do the type of surgery you want to keep both.

Re: Dr keeps mentioning removing only ovary

Exactly my thoughts, I will be talking to another obgyn, Basically her opinion was that since I had the positive HPV test when I was 18 and pregnant That it must’ve just been laying dormant. Even though I’ve had multiple other doctors tell me that I can clear itself up. I had an abnormal Pap that one time and after that it’s never showed up again. So I wanted to keep my cervix, she just did a hysteroscopy on me today and will let me know results when they come in, on Monday I’m calling more obgyns and seeing what to do, my periods are super painful, and honestly I just want my uterus out, I had my tubes out in 2017 and have only had the one ovary since I was 13. I don’t want to go into Menopause. I’m not able to take NSAIDs and birth control’s tend to make me crazy. So I’ve been taking hydrocodone for periods for like the past year and a half and I just want to be done

Want hysterectomy, periods are super painful - Dr keeps mentioning removing only ovary


If you've had 15 years of normal pap smears, then I see no reason why you shouldn't be allowed to keep your cervix. My surgeon wanted to do an LAVH, which would have mandated its removal, but I successfully pushed for a supracervical approach, because my research indicated that it would be more appropriate for my individual situation. As for the ovaries, while it is true that they can temporarily shut down after the uterine artery is severed, in the vast majority of cases, they quickly find a new blood supply and resume normal functioning; I kept both ovaries, and blood tests done at 2 weeks post-op showed that they were working normally. I agree with the others that you need to do your research and seek out alternative opinions, so you can do what's best for your individual situation. Best wishes for whatever you decide!

Want hysterectomy, periods are super painful - Dr keeps mentioning removing only ovary

Hysteroscopy came back Benign but the doctor is saying that that’s consistent with me not ovulating and that we should talk about what we should do from here. I do have a consultation with another doctor on the 17th. I know **** well I’m ovulating I went through fertility and all that other stuff so I know when I ovulate I can feel it and I can tell from the mucus and based on my hormone results they were good for where I was in my cycle. I don’t know why she’s so hell-bent on taking my ovary, He offered me to do an ablation or to have cervix, ovary and uterus removed, I’m so annoyed

sounds like a second or third opinion is a great idea!

A hysterectomy is invasive surgery and each doctor approaches things so differently.

I agree - please get other medical opinions asap. I’m glad you have an upcoming appointment on the 17th.

Knowledge is power - you are right to ask questions. You need to make a decision based upon tests and clear, medical advice. While nothing is ever guaranteed, you want to increase your odds by choosing the best doctor and the right surgery type. You are the final decision maker.

Hugs and keep researching all your options.
We are here for you no matter how you decide to proceed.
