      Hi Georgina Having a full hysterectomy can throw you into the menopause very quickly and this can put as lot of stress on the body which then results in menopause symptoms such as those you are experiencing. This is why most women will be offered HRT after the operation. Supporting your body as much as you can will help so make sure that you have a good, varied diet, lots of water and avoid foods/drinks which will stress your nervous system ie caffeine, fizzy drinks, fruit juices etc. You may find the Menopause Support can help and I would also add in extra magnesium 200mg and a vitamin B Complex 50mg. Acupuncture can often help after the operation so worth looking into.

      Hi Kate Many women go without a period for months or even a year or so and then either get a single one back again or restart for a few months. We usually say that you are through the menopause after not having had any period for 2 years, as it is rarer to have a period after this point. The one-off period or spate of periods is often caused by things such as a 'last fling' by your hormones, stress, illness, strenuous exercise, dieting, change of diet (especially if you improve it); It is important to get it checked which, I am glad to hear, you have already done so. I am sure your doctor is just being cautious which is great, we hear of so many women like yourself who get ignored by their doctor!

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
