I am 35. 8 years ago I had a hysterectomy with one ovary removal. For the last year I have been experiencing what I think are perimenopausal symptoms. My question is, can having the surgery like mine increase my chances of an earlier menopause? Not having a period for the last 8 years, all I have to go by are symptoms other than a weird or missing period.
My symptoms are: night sweats, mood swings, breast tenderness, adult acne, facial hair, increase in headaches, sleep issues, weird and transistion joint pain, like in hips, extreme dry eye, fatigue. I do not recall having a bad pms or cyclical issues when I did menstrate. I had the hysto due to fibro, as well as a large tumor (non cancerous) and one ovary because of cystic scarring and reappearing and painful cysts. My thyroid has already been checked.
Thank you very much.
