Sex hormones — estrogens and progestins, which are, in fact, makes a woman a woman, are produced in the ovaries. It happens that the doctors have to remove both ovaries. What next happens to the body, left without hormones? Typically hormones are beneficial — stimulating and protective effect on many of the functions — for example, to work cardiovascular system, the skin on the bone.

In fact, all organism women can be considered as hormone-. Not surprisingly, after a sharp drop in the level of sex hormones in the removal of the ovaries work the whole body changes dramatically. Developing so-called post-castration syndrome: worsening overall health, skin loses its elasticity, and there are many diseases begin to progress. This condition is something like premature aging.

Realizing the importance of hormones on women's health, doctors are very reluctant to removal of both ovaries (oophorectomy). But there are situations when the ovaries are dangerous to leave (usually for cancer). They must be removed, because sex hormones may have a stimulating effect on tumor growth.

The main question which begins to disturb the patient — whether it is a woman feel after the surgery? Without a doubt, yes. Formation of all the signs of a woman's body is already in the womb and during childhood and young age at the time of puberty girls. This process is irreversible, andwoman will always be a woman, in spite of the presence or absence of certain organs. Butafter ovariectomy it arise other problems.

If oophorectomy make a woman of advanced age, which, as they say, nothing to lose (ovaries and so it almost does not work), the situation is not tragic. But the problem is that in recent gynecologists are increasingly faced with the need to remove the ovaries in young patients. After surgery, they begin changes similar to those seen in women with preserved ovaries at the age of 50-55 years when the reproductive system of "retiring" and menopause occurs.

Symptoms usually begin to appear after 2-3 weeks after surgery, and after reaching the maximum force 2-3 months. In the first 1-2 year dominated breach of vascular tone.

This is manifested:

  • hot flashes;
  • increased sweating;
  • headaches;
  • fluctuations in blood pressure;
  • chills;
  • palpitations.

Also characteristic changes in mental and emotional condition of the woman.

Arise: 

  • irritability, anxiety;
  • insomnia or drowsiness;
  • depression;
  • weakness;
  • forgetfulness, inattention;
  • decreased sex drive.

Later, these symptoms may be reduced, but, unfortunately, they often come to replace the other. They are associated with metabolic disorders. The fact that the receptacles are deprived of the protective action of estrogens and starts the rapid formation of atherosclerotic plaques. May develop atherosclerosis, which leads to coronary heart disease, stroke, problems with blood vessels feet. Because of the protective effect of estrogen before menopause women do not suffer nearly atherosclerosis, although theirmale peers enhance their cars from the disease. Only after the menopause, when there is a deficiency of estrogen, women quickly "catching up" of men.

Same with essential hypertension. In women with a high probability of ovariectomized facecardiovascular diseases. Sex hormone-dependent and bone health. So in a few years after removal of the ovaries can develop osteoporosis. The bones become brittle. Especially dangerous hip fractures, which are difficult to be treated andbecause of prolonged immobility of the patient often leads to a sad outcome.

Also very dependent on hormones and urogenital organs.

Ovariectomized often appear: 

  • vaginal dryness
  • pain during sexual intercourse
  • itching and burning sensation in the genital area
  • frequent urination.

 Because of lack of hormones may be affected and the skin, nails, hair.

Is this tragic situation? Not at all.

First, adrenal glands and fatty tissue partially offset the estrogen deficiency. Therefore, in some women the operation is virtually no consequences.

Secondly, Modern medicine has the technology to help other women. If not counter-hormone therapy, the prescribed estrogens and progestins, which replace the lack of natural hormones. These drugs are recommended to be taken for life. Hormone replacement therapy gives a good effect, allowing the woman for a long time to feel healthy.

If the operation was about cancer, you can not prescribe hormones. In this case, resort to a somewhat less efficient, but also effective homeopathy. Especially effective homeopathic remedies for diseases and emotional reactions. They increase the adaptive capacity of the female body in a stressful situation and, by the way, have no side effects.

For the prevention of osteoporosis widely used fluoride and calcium-containing preparations.

But some drugs is not enough. A woman in this situation should be sensitive to the processes taking place in her body, she deal with depression, to lead an active life, do not forget about the sport, take care of yourself. After all, woman always a woman!
