Ovary failure? As in stopped working? Btw, I sent you a pm.
I just checked my PMs. I will reply to that one later. They can fail but it's not a high percentage. It's just one of the things that can happen. Some women keep their ovaries and are fine. I think a hysterectomy is a last resort because it's removing a vital organ that produces hormones...but if the benefits of having it removed are great than keeping it than I totally see the need to have one. But that's my opinion though. Everyone has to weigh the pros and cons. I had absolutely no trouble after surgery and my doctor said I was a textbook perfect example of healing...

The choice is yours and no doctor or person can talk you into or out of anything. You have to make of your own mind.
If you can read this then you're standing too close.
