Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here. Preparing a response and will be with you shortly.

Ask Your Own OB GYN Question

Yes, the discomfort you're experiencing could certainly be related to your ovaries. Your ovaries continue to remain hormonally active, and ovulate (meaning release an egg every month or thereabouts) despite the missing uterus. It is likely that you are experiencing some ovulation pain.

Ok that is what I had Figured ... just wanna make sure :).... I just Turned 50 so is this something that will happen periodically

The average age of menopause in this country (when our ovaries become inactive and typically stop ovulating) is 51, but some women's ovarian function will persist even past 51. So in short, yes, this could continue on for up to a few more years!

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.
