will ovaries ever wake up?

Hi girls

I am almost 5 weeks post op and feel like I am on a roller coaster ride...I go for 1 week feeling really great and then all of the sudden the hot flashes and overwhelming anxiety comes back for a week or so then I am ok nagain....has anyone else experienced this will my hormone levels/ ovaries ever even out again? My Gyn has recommended that I start on low dose Premarin to get through the rough patch But it scares me a little.....had blood work done...Dr. says its fine but I have been told its not really reliable because it changes from day to day.....help girls any advice? I'm starting to lose heart a little

I was going through the same thing, except was like my rollercoster was only going down. I had a visit with my doctor at 41/2 weeks, he said sometimes it takes longer for the ovaries to recover, I had ovarian drilling done due to PCOS. He started me a hormone patch and I am happy to say today is 7 weeks for me and last week was the best yet. No more night sweats, hot flashes are now like warm flushes, and emotions are much better. I have another appointment on Thursday, so I will see how long I will use the patch, but boy o boy did it make a difference.

thanks for the reply girls...I am trying to do my best and wait it out as I have heard your ovaries can sleep for quite awhile....the only thing that really confuses me is which hormone to try temporarily.....estrogen or progesterone? in the past pre-surgery I was always on a progesterone only pill because I didn't react well to estrogen and my doc said I produced enough on my own....so how do you know which hormone you are lacking?
