usually in total hysterectomy the surgeon leaves back an ovary for estrogen production unless it is indicated to remove them also in cases of cancer.
if ur age is close to 50 and even if ovaries r there it would be rendered non functional as a natural course.
the symptoms of menopause vary from person to person.
what u have is emotional instability as a consequence.
u have 2 ways to tackle it. either take HRT or ease and wait out for the feeling to subside.
by the wag taking Premarin for 21 days monthly is not going to be harmful.
take care.
