Background. The aim of this prospective study is to evaluate the ovarian function and its duration after total simple hysterectomy.
Methods. This research was carried out on thirty regularly menstruating patients who underwent simple hysterectomy. Ovarian function has been evaluated by measuring FSH, E2, PP at 6 and 24 months from hysterectomy or from the first observation at the beginning of the study.
Results. None of the patients showed ovarian failure at 6 months. Nine patients (average age: 48,8 years) showed ovarian failure at 24 months.
Conclusions. The conclusion is drawn that the cessation of ovarian activity is not influenced by hysterectomy: it rather depends on the age of the patient.
