Hi, Thanks for the query. To confirm menopause, get your FSH, LH levels done. If they are elevated indicates menopause. If not then you need further testing for cause of absent periods like hypothyroidism, ovarian cysts, increased prolactin etc. Hope this was helpful.

Does the risk of having a heart attack increase with a histerectomy or menopause?
Hello and welcome to HCM,
The risk of heart attack is not related to hystrectomy.
Menopause is associated with fall in levels of estrogens and progesterone.
Estrogens have a protective effect on the cardiovascular health.
After menopause this protective effect is lost and the female is at similar risk for cardiovascular diseases as their male counterparts.
Thanks and take care
