Ovulation and hysterectomy
I am 31 yrs old and had a hysterectomy about 2 yrs ago (age 29!!!).
Is it dangerous to ovulate, but no menstruation occurring.
Every month I get these excruciating ovulation pains which are increasing in intensity.
My gynae said that my ovaries are enlarged.
It was confirmed that I do ovulate.

How can this be cured (not just relief with myprodols every month)?

No it is not dangerous to ovulate and not menstruate. The egg is just absorbed by the body.
If you have cysts on your ovaries ( commoner after hysterectomy), you may need to have them surgically removed.
