HRT: If you are spotting after a hysterectomy there is something wrong internally that you should have examined soon by your doctor. The hot flashes are a sign that the remaining ovary isn't working well enough to provide the needed estrogen. At your young age you probably need to go on estrogen supplement unless there is a good reason your doctor feels otherwise. ...Read more

What can cause these current symptoms, heightened sense of smell, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and mood swings. I had a complete hysterectomy in 2012.

Yes: Assuming your ovaries were removed at the time of the hysterectomy, I would encourage you to try estrogen replacement therapy. You are too young to be without estrogen. No estrogen can cause bone and vaginal problems in addition to the symptoms you describe. ...Read more

Start with GYN MD: Start by asking your GYN MD surgeon if physical exercise of any type is O.K. or not. Secondly, if you are only 12 days post op you are probably still taking pain medication which is a mood altering drug as well.

I am 36 years old I had my partial Hysterectomy at 33. I am having hot flashes, clammy skin, fatigue, vaginal dryness, mood swings. Perimenopause?

Possible: What exactly was removed? Just the uterus and cervix? Was one or both ovaries left? Sometimes even if the ovaries are left the blood supply is compromised somewhat from dividing the blood supply to the uterus. See your provider for blood work to determine if you might be in menopause or premenopause. This would mean blood work. ...Read more

Are the side effects for a partial hysterectomy the same as full (still have ovaries) ie;early onset of menopause, anxiety, depression, dizziness fatigue, insomnia, memory problems, mood swings, nervousness and etc. Should I pay for a saliva testing (zrt)

No: Your ovaries are likely still working. Many people seek solutions for mood and stress via ovarian hormones.

Do you have panic attacks, crying spells, low energy, etc. I'm not saying its all psychiatric just don't use resources seeking perfect horm. ...Read more
