Medically valid option?

Hello, I'm homozygous for factor 5 Leiden, but I also have PCOS. I have never been pregnant, and have no intentions of it (going to adopt). I have been curious if a hysterectomy would be something I should consider, due to the risk factors associated with both conditions. I know it seems like a big leap, but my thoughts were since both ovaries are covered in cysts, I'm not ovulating, the horomone imbalances causing problems (but I can't take HRT at all), and the risks of DVT during a pregnancy, if it would be better to simply remove the offending organs (and possibly resolve some of the problems). Would this be something I could/should consider?

Greetings tbiM20,

I strongly recommend you discuss your concerns with your gynecologist.
Your clotting disorder (factor V Leiden deficiency) makes you high risk for thromboembolism (clots) and so does surgery. Hysterectomy is still considered to be a major surgery. PCOS rarely warrants surgical intervention and can often be successluy managed medically. I hope this helps.
Regards,
