Dr. Irwin Goldstein, MD, explains if there's a difference in sexual health for women who've had a hysterectomy and their ovaries removed compared to women who've had a hysterectomy and their ovaries are preserved. Dr. Irwin Goldstein has authored more than 325 publications in the field of sexual dysfunction, with 20 consecutive years of funding by the National Institutes of Health in this area. He is Editor-in Chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, the official journal of the International Society for Sexual Medicine.
Arguably with the ovaries intact, the estrodyle values would stay the same as they were pre-op. Interestingly enough, the data that is published states that even though the ovaries are preserved, the estrodyle values do fall with these surgeries, and I am not sure if there may be some ovarian blood supply injury during the hysterectomy, but in fact the presence of at least some estrodyle has to be some benefit to it.
