What causes pain in the ovary after a hysterectomy?

Well, your ovary still runs its cycle even though the uterus has been removed. Each month, a normal ovary creates a cyst and then the prostoglandans kick in and the cyst goes back down. If the pain is intermittent, then that is probably is what is going on, but definitely mention it to your doctor at the next go around. However, if your hysterectomy was because of endometriosis, you may want to check in with your doctor to verify that all is well.
