What about ovarian cysts??

Do they remove your ovaries if you have a history of ovarian cysts? As it stands, I am scheduled to keep my ovaries- (the only thing that hasn't needed to be touched)- However, the doctor I have now is unaware of my history of bursting cysts. I've noticed on many ladies signatures that ovarian cysts has been added to the slew of "work" being done. I will bring up my history with my doctor at my appointment, but I just want to mentally prepare myself if this is something that may sway him to remove them. I've gotten kind of attached to them, I hate to see them go
Thanks everyone. I've gotten the greatest info and support from you all!

What about ovarian cysts??

I had ovarian cysts and endo, so leaving my ovaries was not an option because of the endo, but even if it had been I would have strongly explained to my doc that with my history of cysts that I was concerned for the risk of ovarian cancer. There is no test for that and oce you have other parts removed many women become "slackers" to say the least with annual check ups. There is no need for them. But if your ovaries are left and your doctor does not keep an eye on that you may run the risk of ovarian cancer. I would sit down with your doc and talk about your cysts. Why go in and remove part only to have to go in a few years later and remove the ovaries because you are in pains when they continue to rupture.
