Hi all. I'm wondering if anyone can help. I have been diagnosed with endo on both my right and left side. My right ovary is completely covered and I have cysts low down on my left. I'm waiting to see consultant on Monday but hysterectomy has been mentioned. Has anyone had a hysterectomy and been left with one ovary? If you have have u has to take the hormone replacement tablets? And have you lost your sex drive or have difficulty in having sex? I can't seem to find the answer on google and I'm worried it may cause problems in my relationship. Thanks x

Yes & believe me do yourself a favor and get rid of all your parts on both sides its better to do it all at once instead of twice on moving your ovaries & felopian tubes


Mother was left one Ovary and got cancer of the Ovaries anyway. She is resistant to Chemo drugs....???? They don't know?? We need advice.


Hi there,

Do you suffer from Adenomyosis as well? I only ask because studies show that hysterectomy does not cure Endo. I had chosen to undergo a full hysterectomy this summer and after reading the meaterial on relapse percentages, I changed my mind. I'm still wanting a child and so this is also part of my decision (though Endo and Lupron had its part in ending my 5 year relationship) I don't know what your particular situation is, but I found a lot of useful information on the support page through FB called 'Nancy's Nook' it's American but the members are of all creeds and countries, I really hope you find an answer specific to your case. I fully understand the thoughts and worries associated with the decision you're contemplating.
