i am due to see the doc on the 11th and will be told what they think they have found i have been told over the last few weeks that it is a tumor a cyst a mass i just dont know my CA125 is up and i feel very down... what i want to know is what will my sex life be like after they take it all away .... i only have ovaries left but they are coming out and cant take any HRT as i have breast cancer gene so now im worried as i have just found a new man and am only 42
Well, if all you have left are the ovaries and they remove them, that means you'll go through a menopausal time. Hot flashes, emotional ups and downs and some body changes. It won't sneak up on you like a typical menopause but that's how you'll end up. The point of this rambling is there are millions of women out there in menopause that still enjoy an active love life. Don't give up.
I don't mean to take this lightly as I know you are concerned. But.... I'm way past menopause and my love life is fine.. (I don't take HRT either)
And don't jump to any conclusions.. it may be possible to save the ovaries.. it may be that the CA-125 is high for a lot of other reasons,they may be able to just remove the cyst or cysts. But in the event the ovaries have to go.. don't despair. After the initial immediate menopause "shock" , things will be just fine...
You know what you might do also.. check over on the Menopause board just to see if there are any gals that have gone through early menopause due to removal of ovaries. They may also have some answers.. but stick around over here as well.
