BC pills!!!

Hi all,
I had a TAH kept ovaries on 2/5/04. Had mild hot flashes, severe mood swings during initial recovery so after 3 weeks, my DR put me on Estrace for 30 days to see if things improved. Thought my ovaries were in shock or something.
I went off the Estrace 3/29/04 and got a pain in my left side like someone is twisting a knife in me. Went to my DR and he said that the pain could be due to ovulation starting, maybe a cyst on my ovary. We chose not to do an ultrasound because I was so uncomfortable already, but to take BC pills to suppress ovulation for 6 weeks to see if conditions improve. Well they have. I have two more weeks of pills before I see what is going to happen.

I had a tubal ligation in 2003 so I could get off the BC pills, I had been on them for about 20 yrs. All my problems seem to have happened since then, with the fibroids, heavy bleeding and painful periods, maybe the pill was masking these problems. I had the hyst to eliminate all of those issues (found adenomyosis in uterus). I do not want to be on BC pill and I do not want anymore pain.

I did not anticipate this, having kept my ovaries. Can anyone share like experiences, I know we are all different, but I don't know what to expect after I take the last pill.....

Confused and alittle scared that this is not the end.

BC pills!!!


Sorry you are back on the BC pills. You may just be on them for just a short while. It may take the ovaries some time to figure out what they are going to do without the uterus. They may be confused. They may not even produce hormones like they should for a while.

Your dr will work with you as you get all this in harmony. It may take a few weeks or months. I know it has taken me some time to find balance. It just doesn't happen as quickly as we would like. The surgery is not an easy fix and I have had some set backs during recovery. You will eventually get through the bumps and we are here to help you get through it.

I hope things get better for you.
