Menopause Is Forever


In natural menopause the ovaries are PERMANENTLY no longer producing both estrogen (estradiol) and progesterone. If your ovaries were removed during your hysterectomy, then you are also permanently in menopause. Every cell in a woman's body has estrogen and progesterone receptors, not just the reproductive system, so the entire body suffers once in menopause. Cyclic BHRT can help.

Indefinitely


By total hysterectomy, I assume you mean the uterus, tubes & ovaries were removed. Surgical menopause (removing ovaries before menopause) can cause more extreme symptoms than a natural menopause. Some women never have noticeable symptoms of menopause, some have hot flashes & mood swings for 2-3 years, & some women have these indefinitely. Treatments are available, consult with your gynecologist.

Not likely if you have a healthy diet. Colds are caused by viruses. Some vitamin deficiencies might make one more vulnerable to infections.

The HRT will decrease your risk for stroke, heart attack, colon cancer, osteoporosis, and alzheimer's disease. In addition the estrogen will minimize hot flushes, mood swings, insomnia, vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse.
