I had a hysterectomy  including my ovaries being removed when I was 29. I went into instant menopause. I am now 43 and having many symtoms of menopause. Has anyone gone through this?

Hi,
It is possible for women to experience menopause twice. Estrogen Crash occurs when both of a woman's ovaries are removed. Some women experience induced menopause as a result of surgery or medical treatments, such as chemotherapy and pelvic radiation therapy.
For women undergoing natural menopause, the process is described in three stages: peri-menopause (premenopause), menopause, and post-menopause.
Hormone replacement is the answer to these problems. Bio-identical hormone therapy (BHT) and adding oestrogenic foods such as tofu, legumes may also help.
The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
