I am 48, obese, with a history of PCOS and a diagnosis of adenomyosis. Since having my daughter nearly 7 years ago, my cycle has been like clockwork without the Pill, for the first time in my life. Unfortunately, the adenomyosis is getting worse and having a major impact on our lives. With my enlarged uterus and increased risk of endometrial cancer, my only hysterectomy option appears to be one that requires lengthy and hefty recovery. I am a SAHM of our gifted/autistic daughter and that recovery is why I keep putting it off. I am wondering if it would be possible to remove my ovaries and enter menopause a bit early?? The surgery is less invasive and the recover more manageable. I found that such is sometimes done for endometriosis, but could find nothing for adenomyosis and don't want to talk to my doctor in complete ignorance.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
