2+ months post hysterectomy: How soon do the ovaries wake up

I had surgery 1/14/15 my left ovary removed and my right one still in place. I'm wondering how soon will it wake up and function. I'm in peri-menopause and I'm having trouble feeling balance. I'm also beginning to have terrible headaches. Any response would be greatly appreciated.

There is no definite time for that. I have both ovaries, am 32, 3 months post op and they still show no sign of balancing themselves. I'll wait a month or two and then will check my hormones and consult the Dr.

paria,
Thanks for replying and the information is good to know as well. I did get in to see my doctor and have my levels tested they came back with them being very low. My dr wants me to start HRT the pellet kind.

Re: 2+ months post hysterectomy: How soon do the ovaries wake up

Hi and sorry you are going through that. The answer is that it is different for everyone. Some women have no problem/delay, others, like you, do have some delay.

A hysterectomy causes trauma to the ovaries. The main blood supply for the ovaries is the uterine artery, which has to be cut to remove the uterus. The secondary blood supply for the ovaries is the ovarian artery.

Cutting the main blood supply can be a shock to that organ, and can cause interruption to its function. Generally, the interruption is temporary.

Most women find that their bodies adapt to using the secondary blood supply fine, and the ovaries should start back to normal function soon. However, I believe that the research shows that even if they work fine for while, a women may experience earlier ovarian death then if she had not had a hysterectomy, due to the possibly compromised blood supply.

For me, it was about 4 months. Currently, I'm about a year and a half out, and I feel fine.

Hi and thanks so much for all of this information it explains alot why I feel the way that I do. It's difficult having these crazy mood swings......

I'm going to start the HRT within the week to balance myself out as well.
