Very low LH and FSH levels after partial hysterectomy at 35--why is that?

Very low LH and FSH levels after partial hysterectomy at 35--why is that?

Normal: If your ovaries were left in place, you are not in menopause, which is confirmed by low FSH and lh. A partial hysterectomy in medical terms means removal of the uterus but not the cervix. Complete hysterectomy means removal of uterus and cervix. Removing the ovaries is separate.

Fsh (Definition)

The name 'follicle stimulating hormone' refers to its role in females, namely to recruit and prepare an oocyte (egg) in the first half of the menstrual cycle leading up to ovulation. Fsh is often measured in blood to test a woman's ovarian ...Read more

Partial hysterectomy and left ovary removed. Menopause symptoms are driving me crazy. My Fsh is 46.8, LH15.40, testostrone free0.6.

Ans: You still have the right ovary for perimenapausal symptoms try the essential oil peppermint on your wrist. Does in some cases relieve the hot flashes. Otherwise there are medications that can be tried. Not the best efficacy though

Partial Hysterectomy- 44 yrs old, ovaries have growing cysts. FSH 8.4! Also Factor V Leiden. Should I consider surgery?

Depends on the cysts: Ovarian cysts can have many different characteristics. If they are growing in size and/or have complex or solid components further evaluation should be considered. Sometimes a blood test can help with surgical decision making.

38yo F, partial hysterectomy 5 years ago. Recent fevers, malaise, hot flashes, joint pain. All blood work neg except 35 and FSH 145.7. What's wrong?

38yo F, partial hysterectomy 5 years ago. Recent fevers, malaise, hot flashes, joint pain. All blood work neg except 35 and FSH 145.7. What's wrong?

Malaise, hot flashes: Please request a full workup of your thyroid, and not just the TSH. A full thyroid panel including antibodies to the thyroid, and Reverse T3 (liothyronine). You did not reveal the rest of the test you had done, but you should have all 3 estrogens checked, progesterone and other hormones. Request to see an endocrine md or a Functional Medicine doctor to help figure out what is happening with your hormones.

Estradio level serum is 50.79 what does it mean I'm 30 years of age I had a partial hysterectomy 4 months ago been having hot and cold sweats?

Estradio level serum is 50.79 what does it mean I'm 30 years of age I had a partial hysterectomy 4 months ago been having hot and cold sweats?

Follow up visit: For highly specific result interpretation it's best to discuss with the ordering physician who can put it in the proper context. If you still have your ovaries then one expect normal hormone production. Your Estrogen level is normal but a doctor would not test Estrogen levels typically when evaluating hot flashes. They would test an FSH level. Looks like your hot flashes are not from menopause

What should FSH level be if you are on HRT post hysterectomy?

What should FSH level be if you are on HRT post hysterectomy?

Not measured!: If you had a hysterectomy with oophotectomy (which is removal of the ovaries) your FSH will go very high, usually into the 100's. The FSH responds differently in different people to HRT. In some it does not change in others it comes to undetectable. What is important is how you feel not a number! Also, know in situation it is safe and appropriate to be on HRT, see link.

Should I still be in pain after a partial hysterectomy?

Depends: If the surgery was within the last 3 to 4 weeks, you could still be having pain from the surgery. Your pain should be getting better with time. If it is getting worse you should see your doctor.

Why am I bleeding after a partial hysterectomy?

Why am I bleeding after a partial hysterectomy?

After hysterectomy: If you had a supracervical hysterectomy it is not unusual to have mild light periods, depending on how much endometrial tissue is left behind. If your uterus and cervix were both removed, than any bleeding needs to be immediately investigated. Please contact your surgeon's office to set up an appointment.

What are the chances of me having prolapse after a partial hysterectomy?

Depends: If you have had vaginal deliveries, your risk is already elevated for having vaginal prolapse symptoms. A hysterectomy could potentially increase your risk unless the surgeon is very careful to re-support the vagina to the utero-sacral ligaments. If you already have some degree of prolapse it can be repaired at the time of your hysterectomy.

If you get a partial hysterectomy do you still have a period?

If you get a partial hysterectomy do you still have a period?

Possibly: Partial hysterectomy, or supracervical hysterectomy, refers to the removal of the uterus but leaving the cervix. Because the cervix can have some endometrial tissue which produces the tissue that is shed as a period, you could have light bleeding when you would normally have a period. It is usually so light a panty liner is more than enough.

Sex after hyst: I would not have sex until at least 6 weeks after your surgery. In addition, you should see your surgeon before starting exercise or sex.
