Welcomto the healthcaremagic.com forum.Although for most women the menopause
comes about naturally in their forties or fifties, having a hysterectomy
performed whilst still at a pre-menopause age can actually bring about the menopause. This is known as a surgical menopause. Even if one or both ovaries are removed will disrupt a woman's hormonal
system before her body has had time to adjust. The sudden onset of menopausal symptoms following a hysterectomy can be very distressing and difficult to cope with. Therefore, many women do seek treatment in the form of hormone replacement therapy
.For those experiencing surgical menopause the symptoms can seem more severe than those dealt with by women going through a natural menopause.However since now you are well into your menopause there is no need to continue HRT unless you have severe osteoporosis
.Please consult your doctor regarding tapering off the medicines.Take Care.
