Been told will go straight into the menopause after an operation. Help!
I am having both ovaries and both fallopian tubes removed, it is only today that the hospital has told me that my perods will stop and I will go straight into the menopause. My consultant has said that because of my age, 49. HRT is not necessary. He feels, from a couple of things I told him that I may well already be peri-menopasal.
Anything I need to be prepared for? Is calcium a good idea and if so how much?
@jayneesha Age has nothing to do with symptoms or HRT use or non-use and how a woman feel. Everyone is different. You may have Manageable symptoms in peri, but without ovaries it may be a different situation or may not. Even women who have been through meno and have their ovaries taken or chemo sometimes have issues. Surgical menopause is tough on many women and hopefully you will be fine,
