No, FTM oophorectomy surgery does not affect the ability to undergo future pelvic exams. The ovaries are located in the pelvis, but they are not the only structures that are examined during a pelvic exam. The doctor will also examine the uterus, cervix, vagina, and rectum.

Even if you have had your ovaries removed, you will still need to have regular pelvic exams to screen for cervical cancer and other health problems. The doctor will be able to perform a pelvic exam even if you do not have ovaries.

The image you sent me is a picture of a sign that says “Can I have?”. This is a common phrase used by people who are asking for something. In this case, the person is likely asking for a pelvic exam.

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you have any other questions.

FTM (Female-to-Male) oophorectomy surgery involves the removal of the ovaries in individuals transitioning from female to male. After this surgery, the anatomy of the pelvic region may be altered, which can potentially impact the ability to undergo certain types of pelvic exams.

The specific impact on pelvic exams can vary depending on the surgical technique used, individual anatomy, and any additional surgeries that have been performed as part of the gender transition process. FTM oophorectomy itself does not typically remove the entire reproductive system, and other pelvic structures such as the uterus and cervix may still be present.

It’s important to communicate with your healthcare provider or surgeon about your concerns regarding future pelvic exams. They can provide you with the most accurate and personalized information based on your specific situation and the surgical approach used.

In some cases, modifications to standard pelvic exams may be required or alternative approaches may be recommended. Transgender healthcare providers who specialize in gender-affirming care are often experienced in addressing these specific needs and can provide guidance on appropriate pelvic exam options for individuals who have undergone FTM oophorectomy surgery.

Remember, open communication with your healthcare provider is key in addressing any concerns or questions you may have regarding your healthcare needs after surgery.
