One ovary to be removed - will I need HRT?

I am just curious about what to expect, and if anyone is in the same situation.

My doc and I have focused on my current medical issues during my visits, and I just hadn't occurred to me to ask about HRT. I'm still wrapping my brain around my upcoming surgery, because it has all happened pretty fast.

I'll be calling the office Monday anyway, but just wondered if anyone could help me know what to expect.

Re: One ovary to be removed - will I need HRT?


One ovary should be able to produce enough hormones to keep you from having symptoms of menopause. Don't be surprised, though, if it doesn't happen right away. Even women who keep both ovaries often experience menopause symptoms because of the disruption of blood flow to the ovaries as a result of the hysterectomy.

Keep the possibility in mind that you might need hormone therapy and discuss your options for what to use with your doctor. There's good information about various estrogen choices in this link: Hormone Jungle Articles.

Best wishes for your surgery!

I had TAH and left ovary removed 7 weeks ago. Doc. said should be no problems hormonally and so far he is right.

Re: One ovary to be removed - will I need HRT?

Thanks for the replies and the well wishes! I just talked to the nurse and discovered that I had misunderstood the doc. He wants to go ahead and remove both ovaries. I guess that the kind of tumor I have on my right ovary likes to do an encore performance at a later date in the opposite ovary, and he said that I am better off to preempt that.

A little bummed, and still wrapping my brain around this whole thing.
