Hi, I am 47 and have had a partial hysterectomy over twelve years ago now. They took everything except my ovaries. Before the hysterectomy I had horrible periods, fibroids, mood swings and bad cramps, extreme heavy flow and ovary pain every period. The day of the hysterectomy was like euphoria. I immediately felt calm, happy and NO more mood swings. Yay! About a year now every few months I have experienced a week of hot flashes and then they disappear again for months. So I believe I must in perimenopause. Well now three days ago I had a bad day of feeling very mad moody like when I was going to have my period! I was so irrationally mad I almost laughed except I was too mad! That went away and now the last two days I have had terrible ovary pain. Both sides but slightly more on the left. They have that slow burn and ache and some sharper pains intermittantly. I can feel them again...bloated somewhat and if I suck in my stomach it hurts there on the ovaries. When I am about to have a bowel movement it hurts worse as I assume the colon is pushed up against the swollen ovaries. They feel very very sore almost like they are bruised. Oh this is a very big reminder of what life used to be like. Now to my question.
Is this typical for perimenopause? I am a bit different than any of the other postings I can find due to having the hyster but having my ovaries. I really just want it to stop. Will it?
