Should I remove my ovaries along with the uterus as I have non pcos ovarian cyst ?

Hi I had a hysteroscopy in march that said polypoid endrometrium cervical prolapse pcos and non pcos ovarian cyst the last i new. On tuesday i found out i had atypical endometrial hyplasia adenmoysis, waiting for mri date but have had my hysterectomy date for beginning of june. I have got to decide do i keep ovaries or not. im 31 no biological children (do to extensive pcos that did not react well to fertility drugs or ovaraian diathermy) have been told ovaries only producing very minimal progesterone but excessive amounts of oestrogen that has caused my weight gain. but because there is a history of thrombalisis with people that have been on hrt not sure if i will be to go on. (non of these people had hysterectomy) can someone please give me advice on keeping ovaries and removing ovaries. thanku

These include the lack of ability to bear child, hot flashes, cease of menses, night sweats, mood swings, fatigue, sleeplessness, and anxiety. It may also decrease sex drive.
Medical Side Effects are :Women with no ovaries are at seven time higher risk of getting heart disease. This risk is not as intense in women who have gone through natural menopause.

Have a cyst on the right ovary measuring 2.2x1.6x2.0 cm which demonstrates a thin internal septation. Uterus is normal in appearance aside from a small anterior suberosal fibroid measuring 1.4x1.2x0.7 cm. Do you think it should be removed by doing a cyst aspiration on the larger cyst? Would having any of these cysts interfere with trying to conceive?

Hello. I am 25 and have no history or pregnancy or serious medical issues but I do have a tilted uterus. Approximately 7 months ago I had laproscopic surgery to remove a 6 cm cyst on my right ovary. Prior to the surgery, my menstrual cycles were regular and only lasted 3-5 days. I am currently having 2 menstrual cycles each month that are not at all regular. A follow up sonogram showed a 4 cm cyst on the same ovary...apparently this is left over from the surgery. My doctor stated that she could only safely remove as much as she did. At this time she is not concerned that I will need a second surgery unless I cannot tolerate the pain and twinges anymore. She did mention that I either was not ovulating prior to the surgery or I am not currently ovulating. I am trying to conceive but this has made it extremely difficult. I guess my ultimate question is whether or not my menstrual cycle should be regular at this point in time. Is it likely that I am not currently ovulating? Should I seek a second opinion or would they simply remove the ovary this time?

Hello, My name is Coltyn and I am a 15 year old FtM (female to male) transgender. I have been taking testosterone enanthate intramuscularly and buserelin acetate nasal spray for 10 months, and have been taking 20 mg/day fluoxetine. I often get horrible stomach aches, had blood in my stool about a month and 1/2 to two months ago. Every day when I have a bowel movement, there is distinguishable food that hasn t been digested properly and is often very loose. I have consulted my paediatrician about the stomach aches and blood in my stool, but not about the undigested food. He says it isn t anything to worry about, but I m not sure if this information changes that. What is wrong with me?
