surgical menopause after hysterectomy and oophorectomy

Surgical Menopause

Surgical Menopause is a result of an oopherectomy (removal of ovaries) or the loss of function of ovaries because of chemotherapy, radiation, or other medical treatment. Surgical Menopause is different than natural menopause in that it is immediate, without benefit of slowing of ovary functions and the ovary benefits women enjoy post-natural menopause. While the hormone jungle is not the easiest place to be, this website should be able to help you navigate through the dark, hot, sometimes sticky remote places of hormone replacement therapy.
