Hormones?Ovaries Malfunctioning?

Hi! I had an TAH on March 8th at 27 years old. I was just wondering if there could still pop up some hormone problems with just having my ovaries? That and I have heard from several women, including my ultrasound technician, that those who have kept their ovaries often find themselves back in the hospital a year or so down the road with ovaries that aren't working properly or ovarian cancer. What have you heard or experienced with this? The technician said with my age she doesn't know what to say, but that she has done so many of these ultrasounds where women have had TAHs and then a year or so later they are right back having another ultrasound with her due to their ovaries not working properly or being cancerous. I would love some info. Thanks!

In Him,

I am sure one of the REAL smart Sisters will come along with more detailed and better info for you concerning your remaining ovaries and fluctuating hormones... I just know what I've experienced... nothing terribly bad at all! *knock on wood* lol

You are SO young, and if you've been otherwise healthy and had no previous hormone problems, I don't imagine having the hyst. would start any chronic hormonal problems for you. I have learned it is quite possible to experience a period of time after a hyst where the ovaries are in "shock", and some call it "sleeping ovaries"... in other RARE instances, women will experience premature ovarian failure from a decreased blood supply.. The latter doesn't occur very often, from what I've read.

I just know I'm glad I kept mine. I hope they are soon all re-settled in down there completely, they're getting better. I've had some minor "warm flashes", some night sweats, but nothing like full blown menopause. I figure that since my mom and g-ma went thru the change at age 55, I should have several years of good hormonal function, however, it is likely that I will now go into menopause a bit earlier than they did, a bit earlier than I would've naturally. Again, this is supposedly due to decreased blood supply to the ovaries.

You mentioned ovarian cancer... does that run in your family? If not, you should be ok, the hyst won't cause an increase in chance or an increased tendency for ovarian cancer. At least I've certainly never read anything like that.

Like I said, I'm sure one of the brighter more knowledgeable sisters will come along before long and give you more specifics. Best wishes to you!
