For a long time I was on the hormone patches (I am horrible at remembering to change the patch, so now I am on the pills) and my doctor put it on right after
my surgery. It really does help. If it were me and you feel you are close to menopause
, then I would have the ovary out. Then you don't have to worry about having anymore surgeries. I have not had one bit of regret about having mine out and like I said, I am 36 with all of my reproductive organs gone by the time I was 32.
