Yes, you can have FtM hysterectomy surgery if you have a history of PCOS. However, it is important to talk to your doctor about your specific case, as there may be some additional considerations that need to be taken into account.

PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects women, but it can also affect trans men. It is characterized by excess androgen production, which can lead to symptoms such as irregular periods, heavy bleeding, acne, and hair growth in unwanted places.

A hysterectomy is a surgery to remove the uterus. It can be done for a variety of reasons, including gender confirmation surgery, to treat heavy menstrual bleeding, or to prevent cancer.

In the case of trans men with PCOS, a hysterectomy can be a helpful way to manage symptoms of the disorder and to achieve a more masculine body. However, it is important to note that a hysterectomy does not cure PCOS. The ovaries will still produce androgens, so other treatments may be necessary to manage the disorder.

Your doctor will be able to discuss your individual case and help you decide if a hysterectomy is right for you. They will also be able to recommend other treatments for PCOS, if needed.

Here are some of the things your doctor will consider when making a decision about whether or not to recommend a hysterectomy for you:

  • Your age
  • Your overall health
  • Your family history of cancer
  • Your current symptoms of PCOS
  • Your goals for gender confirmation surgery

If you are considering a hysterectomy, it is important to do your research and talk to your doctor about all of your options. There are many factors to consider, and the best decision for you will depend on your individual circumstances.

Yes, individuals with a history of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can typically undergo FtM (Female to Male) hysterectomy surgery. PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects the ovaries and can cause various symptoms, including irregular periods, ovarian cysts, and hormonal imbalances.

During FtM hysterectomy surgery, the focus is on the removal of the uterus and, in some cases, the cervix. The ovaries may be preserved or removed depending on individual circumstances and the specific surgical plan.

If the ovaries are preserved during the hysterectomy, the presence of PCOS should not directly impact the feasibility of the surgery. However, it’s important to discuss your history of PCOS with your healthcare provider and the surgeon performing the hysterectomy. They will evaluate your specific situation, taking into account factors such as the severity of PCOS symptoms, any associated complications, and the impact on overall health.

If the ovaries are removed during the hysterectomy (oophorectomy), this will result in the removal of the ovaries and can potentially help manage the hormonal imbalances associated with PCOS. Removing the ovaries can result in a reduction in androgen (male hormone) production, which is often elevated in individuals with PCOS.

It’s crucial to have open and honest communication with your healthcare provider and the surgical team to ensure they have a comprehensive understanding of your medical history, including your history of PCOS. They can provide personalized guidance based on your specific situation, taking into account the risks and potential benefits of FtM hysterectomy surgery in light of your history of PCOS.

Ultimately, the decision to proceed with the surgery and whether to remove or preserve the ovaries will depend on a thorough evaluation of your individual circumstances, including the severity of PCOS symptoms, hormonal imbalances, and any recommended follow-up care. Your healthcare provider will work with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and ensures the best possible outcome.
