When hysterectomy is recommended, women wonder about the effects of the procedure and changes they will have to deal with. During a recent live webinar on DualPortGYN hysterectomy, women in the Washington DC area have asked questions to find out more about the surgery. At CIGC, minimally invasive hysterectomy is performed with 2 small incisions and recovery time is 1 week.
Q. What happens to the ovaries after a hysterectomy, do they attach somewhere else?
A. When we look at pictures of the uterus on the internet it looks like the fallopian tubes are holding up the ovaries. In actuality the ovaries are attached by their own separate ligaments, with their own separate blood supply, to the pelvis. The ovaries function independently of the uterus.
