A 31-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to have mood swings after having a partial hysterectomy?

Yes and no: I assume that when you say a partial hysterectomy that you are referring to having the uterus removed but not the ovaries. If the ovaries remain in place there are no hormonal changes that occur. People may have mood swings for a variety of reasons, but it would not be related to having the uterus removed with the ovaries still intact.

Mood swings: Yes. After a partial hysterectomy, it is not uncommon to have hormonal shifts that can lead to mood swings. These will resolve. If the mood swings become concerning or do not resolve, call your doctor. Nonetheless, discuss your mood experiences with your doctor at your next appointment.
