Question about losing ovaries

I am 25 years old, had my right ovary out 3 years ago due to a borderline malignant tumor and am having a laparatomy next week to hopefully just remove a cystic mass from my left ovary, and leave my ovary in my body.

However, it is quite possible I may lose that ovary, as my doctor is concerned the mass may be malignant, which is why she wants to do a laparatomy.

If I do lose my ovary, what will happen to my sex drive? Will it ever be the same, even with hormone therapy? Being only 25, and having a great man in my life, this is something of a concern on top of everything else that could happen with this surgery.

Re: Question about losing ovaries

There is no easy answer for you. I have heard both sides of the story. Personally speaking I can tell you for a short period of time I did not have any desire what so ever. However, I am happy to say that the further along in my recovery, the balance of my hormones and stuff I got it back and my sex life is fantastic now. I am sure you will get comments from both sides, but remember that everyone is different and just because some do, doesn't mean you will be one of them. Hopefully you will not even have to worrry about it and be able to keep your remaining ovary. I wish you the best of luck and will keep you in my thoughts.
