New here so not sure if I am in right spot

Had a hysterectomy in 89. They left the ovaries in... I know
little about menopause except I have been having hot flashes they have subsided for now. but having the ovaries in... I feel sometimes like I still get monthly cramps? Is that possible? I suffered with endometreosis for about 5 yrs

Welcome to the site!

I have moved your thread over here to the Natural Menopause forum where you should receive the best support. You may also find some information regarding any endo issues you have in our Endometriosis Support forum.

If you retained your ovaries, as I did, they should function normally after your hyst until you begin to experience menopause. Your doctor can perform a simple blood test to check your FSH to see if you are reaching menopause. Hot flashes can be a sign that you have entered peri-menopause and your hormone levels have changed.

With your ovaries you should still have ovulation which can feel a bit crampy. And since you have endometriosis, some of the pain could be associated with any endo that was left behind.

Keeping a journal regarding your symptoms can be very helpful for both you and your doctor. You can also read through the many Hormone articles here on the site!

Many best wishes to you and I hope you are able to talk to your doctor soon about how you are feeling! s
