Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
most likely in your late 50s, your ovaries are not working for you at this point.
you can have blood test to check your estradiol and FSH levels, but I suspect they will show you are after your menopause.
if your blood test show low estrogen levels, then your ovaries are not producing estrogen for you.
and you would be better off just having them removed at the same time of your hysterectomy
you can always get estrogen hormone replacement therapy in the future if you wish.
doing a frozen biopsy to look at your ovaries for ovarian cancer is not the best idea. just best to have them removed.
