Hi, just joined this site after having my right ovary removed a week ago due to a cyst. I've been having hot and cold flashes the last few day's and am wondering if any one else has experienced this? I had been told that my left ovary would continue to function as usual and I wouldn't need any hormones. I'm 31
Hi, and welcome to this forum. You may want to set up an appointment with your Gynecologist to have your hormone levels tested. It is true that if you have one ovary left it usually produces hormones. But, you did have one removed so there could be a drop in your hormone level.
I also had my left ovary removed, which had a large endometrioma attached to it. They also removed my tubes and did an eblation. They were covered in endometriosis. Since I had my surgery, I've had major hot flashes and night sweats. So I totally get it. Did you get a solution to your problem? I'm waiting for my doctor to get back to me. I take birth control regularly to keep the endometriosis at bay and it should have helped with my hormones, but it's not. Just curious about your situation. Thanks
