If your ovaries are hurting having them removed is not unreasonable. With out your ovaries and added hormones your sex life takes a dive. I no longer want sex plus intercourse is to painful from the dryness of the Vagina. I can't take hormones due to cancer. If they will give you hormones it will be okay.

Paps have nothing to do with ovaries so you do not have to worry about ovarian cancer. Many women have HPV it sometimes does not show up.

it took me 11 years to get him to marry me we have now been marred two years ,the doctor did tell there is a treatment for menopause  , some laser therapy  but insurance does no,t cover it ,off course , which I think really should be , I feel if you can,t be on the hormones for medical reason , they should cover this type of treatment for you , we should no,t have to stuffer like this , it really put much stress , on your heath and life .

Sorry for your suffering. I replied to your other post. I never heard of a laser treatment for menopause. Many women who cannot take hormones are allowed to use a vaginal estrogen (which does not get absorbed systemically). This may be worth a try for the vaginal atrophy. Some other options are a long-acting moisturized which you apply every few days (Replens) or inserting vitamin E gelcaps.
