Re: hysterectomy do i leave in my ovaries im 47, will i need HRT and is it the same
I had a hysterectomy in January and chose to leave my ovaries, as long as my doctor felt they looked okay, and was 51.
I'm now 52 and still ovulate every month. I go through the ovulation phase; breast tenderness, and yes, PMS. But at least I have my own hormones. I look at it this way...I'm having the PMS without the monthly mess, so I'm okay with it.
Also, I will probably be aware when I do go into menopause as I'm pretty in tune with my body. So far, I've gone without 9 months of periods that I otherwise would have had and will still have. No hot flashes here yet!
