Some women never have noticeable symptoms of menopause, some have hot flashes & mood swings for 2-3 years, & some women have these indefinitely.

Any thing I can do for early menopause due to a hysterectomy?

Early menopause: I presume that the ovaries were removed along with uterus. This means you lost the benefit of estrogen that protects your heart and blood vessels, your bones, and the genital system. Statistically, the benefits of estrogen outweigh the risks. One suggestion is to take estrogen therapy till your natural age of menopause, or around 50. You may consult your physician to make an individual decision. ...Read more

I recommend taking estrogen as Estradiol which is the same estrogen our bodies make, and natural progesterone, which some doctors would deny you because you don't have a uterus. Balanced estrogen and Progesterone is better. ...Read more
