Is it possible to have a pregnancy after a partial oophorectomy on both ovaries?

Is it possible to have a pregnancy after a partial oophorectomy on both ovaries?

Yes: If partial oophorectomy means that some ovarian tissue was not removed, then a pregnancy would be possible. Even a small part of an ovary contains hundreds of eggs, so normal menstrual cycles, ovulation, and pregnancy can occur. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Will you go through menopause after a partial ovary removal/partial oophorectomy?

Will you go through menopause after a  partial ovary removal/partial oophorectomy?

Unlikely: Assuming that you have your other ovary, removal of part or all of the second ovary will not put a woman into menopause. The remaining ovary will still produce estrogen and ovulation will occur every month from the remaining ovary. I hope this helps you! ...Read more

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

I don't think so: As you may know, all of the eggs a human female will have in her lifetime are present in her ovaries at the time of her birth. The quality of them slowly degrades as she ages. Having part of the ovary removed will surely reduce the number of remaining eggs, but the quality of the remaining ones should be unchanged. ...Read more

If I have had a unilateral oophorectomy, does my remanining ovary secrete ovum every month or every 2 months?

If I have had a unilateral oophorectomy,  does my remanining ovary  secrete ovum every month or every 2 months?

Every month: With only one ovary, your ovulation will only come from that side and it should occur monthly. Having 2 ovaries doesn't mean that you alternate from side to side each month. ...Read more

I am experiencing a sharp pain where my ovary was. I had a unilateral oophorectomy 12 days ago via laparotomy. Is this normal?

I am experiencing a sharp pain where my ovary was. I had a unilateral oophorectomy 12 days ago via laparotomy. Is this normal?

Post-op pain: Some post operative pain is to be expected but you should be getting better every day. If this is not the case, you need to let your surgeon know. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Had hysterectomy and right sided oophorectomy 7 months ago. Recently discovered enlarged left ovary and hemorrhagic cyst . Ovary needs to be removed?

Not usually: Usually that can be followed. It also depends on your medical and gyn history and why you had the previous surgery in the first place. But a cyst like that can usually be followed and as long as it is not causing you bad symptoms it probably does not need to be removed. ...Read more

Yes, : Yes, if you have had an ovarian cyst in the past, then you may be at risk for having another. Ovarian cysts may not produce symptoms, and you may not even know if you have one unless it is detected during a pelvic exam. Since you are having an irregular menstrual cycle, it is prudent to see your doctor, especially if you suspect an ovarian cyst. Other signs can include bloating, abdominal or pelvic cramping, painful period, nausea/vomiting and difficulty urinating. ...Read more

I had an oophorectomy 6years ago at age 22 after cysts on both ovaries. What dietary changes can I make to improve my general health?

I had an oophorectomy 6years ago at age 22 after cysts on both ovaries. What dietary changes can I make to improve my general health?

Eat normal food: Same advise if you still had ovaries. What is a "combined" estrogen? Do you still have a uterus? Any ovarian tissue remaining? Is your migraine worse? Don't smoke. Keep the estrogen dose low. Eat vegetables, fruits, salads, dairy, sea food, nuts, whole grains ...Read more

Had a CT scan which showed a 4x2 mass which radilologist described as an "ovary but i had an oophorectomy 12yr ago. Us showed nothing, now what?

Confusing imaging: I'd be interested in knowing the reason for the imaging in the first place. Loops of bowel filled with stool can be very hard to tell apart from the ovary. Sometimes the opposite ovary can "migrate" to the other side and be seen there on imaging. Mostly it depends on the details of what is going on and probably repeat imaging to try to figure it all out. Feel free to ask more questions. Dr. C. ...Read more
