Good Hormone Hysterectomy Ovaries
Without hormone replacement therapy, can women whose ovaries and uterus were removed still orgasm?
A hormone (from greek ὁρμή, "impetus") is a chemical released by a cell or a gland in one part of the body that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism. Only a little amount of hormone is required to alter cell metabolism. In essence, it is a chemical messenger that transports a signal from ...Read more

How can ovarian function be evaluated post hysterectomy uterus and cervix removed, ovaries retained?
Whole uterus only: A total (complete) hysterectomy is the removal of the whole uterus(body of the uterus as well as the cervix).A partial (or supracervical) hysterectomy removes part of the uterus and leaves the cervix in place.The removal of the tubes and ovaries is a separate procedure (salpingectomy and oophorectomy respectively). Removing everything is a total hysterectomy and a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. ...Read more
40yr old, uterine polyp endo lining thick, estrogen high. No menopause yet. Will amberen work for me to balance hormones?
No: I've checked the ingredient list for amberen and do not see anything listed that would be either helpful or harmful in this situation. With a thick lining, high estrogen and a polyp, a cancer or precancer must be ruled-out and treatment with natural Progesterone the best option in many situations. ...Read more
For some yes: Estroven is an over the counter herbal supplement to improve hormonal imbalance during perimenopause. It can help women who have mild symptoms and are good candidates for hormone use. (a poor candidate are women with heart disease, diabetes, cancers, blood clots). If you have severe symptoms, this will not help and you can consider bio identical hormone replacement. ...Read more
Hormone blood work. Hysterectomy ..one ovary left
Does this mean I need to take hormones?
Menopause : Although I am unable to give an absolute answer without the range of the lab involved, these numbers suggest you are not in the menopause and therefore do not require hormone replacement. Furthermore, if you are asymptotic you do not require medication. The true issue is what is bothering you? Hope this helps. DrG ...Read more
Well yes, but...: If the ovaries are removed, then you'll no longer be producing much female sex hormone at all, and you'd then essentially enter menopause unless hormones are replaced in pill form. Daily hormone replacement pills keep levels very stable which would generally end the sorts of symptoms you get from abnormal hormone fluctuation in PCOS. Though it's far too aggressive of a treatment just for PCOS. ...Read more
34 y/o female w/hormone imbalance, endo, Hashi's. Symptoms poss. early menopause. Seeking low-risk and natural hormone replacement therapy. Advice?
What causes high levels of estrogen after a hystorectomy. Not on hrt... Had both ovaries removed.
See MD: A complex mass at any time is concerning-but more so after menopause. It may have been there for years and be totally benign, but most mds will be worried about a complex mass. A ca125 and he4 test can help decide whether to go to surgery now or closely watching with follow up ultrasound. If it is more than 5 cm or there are other worrisome looking signs on ultrasound, surgery will be necessary. ...Read more
Is a hysterectomy after menopause the best answer for hormone therapy if you have uterine fibroids?
It depends: Most fibroids shrink in menopause, even if you are treated with low-dose hormone therapy. If, however, fibroids grow during menopause, that is a red flag for possible trouble. Hysterectomy will be your best bet to rule out the possibility of a cancerous growth, and to prevent further fibroid growth. Furthermore, you can then use estrogen alone which may be safer than estrogen plus progesterone. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
No, not really: Adenomyosis is when the lining cells of the uterus are located just deep to the lining (but still within the uterus). It can be thought of as endometriosis of the uterus. Hysterectomy would remove this. Almost all fibroids are in the uterus also and would be removed with hysterectomy, although there are fibroids on rare occasions outside the uterus which could be missed/reoccur but very rare. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Is an hCG level of 9 normal 1 year post full transvaginal hysterectomy no uterus, no ovaries, no cervix. Taking 1mg of estrogen daily?
Hard to say..: These may not be related to each other. Many things can cause pelvic pain, if you have large ovarian cysts (>4cm) they may be the cause, but smaller ones less likely to cause pain.Low prog levels (&small ov cysts) are both normal during certain phases of menstrual cycle. But low prog can cause mood sx, anxiety, sleep disturbances. If you have these natural Progesterone tx may help. ...Read more
