just wondering

I started my period today and this will be the last one I ever have for the rest of my life. Big yay there. Not gonna miss that. Only it got me thinking. The doctor is leaving my ovaries and I was wondering if I will still release eggs? If I do where do they go? I have looked stuff up, but they never really talk about this. I for got to ask my doctor when I had him on the phone today. I had other things on my mind.

Thank you all

The hospital where I am having surgery provided and "informational" type video that explained the procedure, and before and after things. Said that if ovaries are left they still produce egg (and hormones, yeah!) when the egg is released it doesn't have the blood supply provided by the lining of the uterus so it just disenigrates. It was kind of a "animated" type video (like the "health movies" we watched in school!!) and just showed the egg moving down and POOF gone!

I have a couple of friends that are 5 and 10 years post TH and they say they still have mild cramps, pms and tender breasts once a month. Weird huh? Thats okay with me as long as the horrible periods go bye bye!

Hope that helps.

Hi, my undersatnding is that the eggs are just absorbed by the body.

Best wishes.
