I just had a partial hysterectomy 3wks ago and when I went in for my 2wk check up I was told I had an ovary missing so he removed the tube but I still have the other ovary. I asked dr. is it possible I was born with one and he said no because he seen the suture. So I will dig through my past to find any records of not having two ovaries. Anyhow I'm 36 and at 35 I started menopause because I will breakout into a sweat soaking my cloths everyday throughout the day, night sweats every night, miserable but my blood work comes back normal but I know I'm going thro it. Got new dr. because of pelvic pain & during sex. I just stared estrogens about 5 days ago so I have had one night sweat since than.Hopeing the meds take symptoms away for good. So if I only had one ovary than is it possible I was surely going thro menopause? If I still have symtoms on 1mg estrogen do I need a stronger dose?View Thread
