Our expert says:
Under the circumstances, hysterectomy is probably your best option. After the age of 45 years, the ovaries decline in their function of producing hormones and menopause usually occurs between 45 and 50 years, where the importance of the ovaries decreases. On the other hand, ovarian cancer risk increases at this age. The idea of removing the ovaries would be to prevent ovarian carcinoma or any cysts forming in the ovaries which no longer have a very useful function. The decision in the end is yours.
