Tracking hormone cycle kept ovaries

I’m just wondering if anyone has a helpful tip or app to track hormone cycle after partial hysterectomy. I used to track my periods and there are lots of period trackers but I just wanna track my hormonal cycle since I no longer have a period. Had my vaginal hysterectomy in feb 2016 didn’t think then that I needed to track so I ditched my tracking app and lost all the data.

Re: Tracking hormone cycle kept ovaries

and

I've heard of women tracking their hormone cycles by taking the basal body temperature. Hopefully someone has the name of an app that works.

As a side note, a vaginal hysterectomy removes the entire uterus (which includes the cervix) so you had a total rather than a partial hysterectomy. A partial hysterectomy leaves the cervix portion of the uterus intact. Removal of the ovaries is a surgery called oophorectomy and isn't a part of the definition of any type of hysterectomy. The terms can be confusing, so I hope this helps. Here is a handy link: Abbreviations.

you should be able to find the tracking app you used in the app store and sign back in...your data should be there if you had an account.

Sadly I did log into it and there is no saved data. I was hoping there would be but there wasn’t. Thank you

Tracking hormone cycle kept ovaries

Thank you for the helpful information I haven’t really had many people to talk to about this and my dr had told me it was a partial bc I had kept ovaries. You are correct cervix and uterus are gone. I had dysplasia stage 3 fully encompassing my cervix inside and out and endo bad and got it all taken out 2 months before I turned 26. Now I’m almost 30 and I know my hormones affect my other condition IIH so I want to start tracking so I can be better prepared.

You are welcome and yes, sadly, even people in the medical profession who should know better do get the terms wrong.

I hope you'll be successful in tracking your levels one way or another.

Tracking hormone cycle kept ovaries

Hi Puckerup,
I can relate to your frustration. I had TAH retained both ovaries.
I used to have tender breast a week or 10 days before menses and my menses cycle is a 35 days cycle before hysterectomy. 1st and 2nd year post hysterectomy, it is kind of easy to count cycle by timing it with breast tenderness sensation and the timing is always right of 35 days. 3rd year post op, kind of difficult as I think hormone imbalances starts -not sure estrogen or progesterone, but PMS symptoms is getting worst like frequent migraines, bone or sore muscles or stiffness, dry skin, ovary cyst, fibroid on breast and etc....although hormone test reading still within normal range. Cycle - a bit irregularity too.
Hope that answer to your questions

Found a good hormone tracker app

A while back, there was a discussion of apps for tracking menopause symptoms, and all the ones talked about used period tracking as the framework for patterns and cycles. Not useful if you don't bleed anymore!

Today, I found what looks like a good one- it's for IOS, and it's called Caria. Setting it up, I was overjoyed to see the many options for where you are in life, including selecting "surgical menopause" as your base history, so it won't ask about periods. If you do still bleed, there are options for regular periods, irregular, or natural post-menopause.

It has trackers for all the common symptoms, plus programs of articles, little talks, meditations, diet suggestions, etc. for whatever symptoms you log that day.

I've only been playing with it for a day, but it looks great so far!

Hi, I have similar question. You probably got your answer by now. I Had laparoscopic partial hysterectomy kept cervix and both ovaries and have been doing the guessing game every month since Dec. 19, 2019 surgery.
I have continued to use my period tracker app and guess about when I think it might be monthly. And what to call it now? Not a period, so latest term I’ve come up with is Phantom Period (PP)

Re: Tracking hormone cycle kept ovaries

Prior to surgery, I used the Daysy basal body temp thermometer along with the DaysyView app. I am going to continue to use it post surgery and although I won't have a period anymore, I do think my temps will be able to show me if/when I ovulated and that should give me a decent clue as to where I am.
