Will PCOS hormonal imbalances end after surgical removal of uterus, ovaries/tubes?

Will PCOS hormonal imbalances end after surgical removal of uterus, ovaries/tubes?

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

Does progesterone make the uterus muscle abnormal in women with adenomyosis ?

Does progesterone make the uterus muscle abnormal in women with adenomyosis ?

No.: Progesterone is personally my favorite hormone in that there is a lesser risk for blood clots, and it helps smoothen and thin out your endometrial lining so that it may perhaps help improve with the heavy bleeding you may be experiencing. The only way to confirm (with 100% confidence) adenomyosis by the way is after a hysterectomy (removal of uterus). Mri/other imaging tests may only suggest it. ...Read more
