Well, I knew this would happen since I kept my ovaries. I'm about 4 weeks post op which puts me right about at the 25 day I'm eating out of control! Sweet, salty, sweet, salty...then I'm short tempered especially with my dd who knows which buttons to push on me! So..anyone else have pms??? I've been taking a daily multi-vitamin, but does anyone have some good pms remedies?? I've heard B6 vitamins help...anything else?? Thanks!! I guess the pot of gold will be no bleeding, but I don't like my eating out of control thing and snapping at my kids.

my first month after my hysterectomy was the worst for pms. i could definitely feel it. now i am totally lost where i am in my cycle. i know i ovulate because i spot and have tenderness..but the pms is gone. your ovaries are probably working overtime right now...and hopefully they will calm down soon.

I am 2 days shy of 4 weeks post-op and was wondering if I would have PMS. With the almost constant bleeding before my surgery, I lost track of my cycle dates. Not to mention that my memory is kind of like swiss cheese from the MS, so remembering where I should be in my cycle is not happening.

I still have my ovaries and I too have pms type symptoms, pretty much every month. Since I don't have a period, I also 'lost' as to when my cycle would be. However, my ovaries obviously remember!

I can't take HRT (varicose veins) so my primary care doctor put me on prozac. I had tried Estroven (herbal) but couldn't keep losing weight with that, so stopped. My gyn's comment when I had mentioned to him about all the symptoms was "I didn't touch your ovaries." Didn't say you did, but "Do something!!" Anyway, for me the prozac has helped reduce the irritibility, underlying depression that was building, night sweats, hot flashes, etc. So I feel they are all more even and contained to the normal couple days pre-period.

You could/should talk to your doctor when you go in. In the meaning, a Chillow is great for hot flashes!!

Hang in there and we're in this together!!

At only 4 weeks post-op I'd be willing to bet you are still adjusting and de-toxing from all you have been through. When I was at 4 weeks I expected to be running on all engines. My paitience was running out and it felt like my support system was exhausted a well. Panic set in. You can entertain a PMS conclusion but I bet you need rest and have been doing to much. Just my (loving) 2 cents.

I'm at 12 wks TAH (kept ovaries) and I've definitely had 3 cycles now. Every month like clockwork, I crave chocolate, I get bloated, constipated, irritable and exhausted. I would say all these symptoms are the same as before, just no cramping and bleeding. So my TAH basically got rid of 2....

Phantom Period

I had a phantom period too. I didn't have PMS, but I did crave all the normal things before my period. Had a slight discharge, like a period. I guess my ovaries haven't figured out they are not needed anymore! Eggs hurry up and dry up!
