Do I still have PCOS if my ovaries were removed?

As I was making a list of questions to ask my Dr when I go back for my check-up, I started wondering if I still have PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome.) If my ovaries were removed, do I still have PCOS? What do you ladies think about that?

Hi PinkTulip,

I think a list is an excellent idea! You have a good question about PCOS. One would think that having the ovaries removed would take care of that, but my understanding is that other factors influence the ovaries to cause PCOS. Your safest bet would probably be to ask the doctor about this. The ovaries are gone, but the factors might still be there...thank goodness for our knowledgable docs!

I hope you find the answer you're looking for.

I think you are right...I didn't think about other things causing the PCOS. That makes a lot of sense. I can't wait for my 6 week appt. because now that my brain fog has lifted, I have lots of questions. Thanks for the response.

Hi--
Yes unfortunatley we still have PCOS when ovaries are gone. I have had my ovaries removed but PCOS is actually also an endocrine disorder that involves more than just the ovaries...bummer huh? The ovary removal helped my mood swings but the other factors of PCOS I still have...
The name is very deceiving.

I have noticed some significant improvements with PCOS since my hysterectomy in November. I've had good luck with HRT and feel very "balanced" as opposed to the craziness that I lived with prior to surgery. Also, I had begun having dark body hair on my arms, belly, and a few on my face, and those have mostly disappeared. Overall, now that I'm past the hard part of the recovery, I'm glad I had the surgery.
