Ladies last October I had a hysterectomy, yayyyyy! However the consultant left my ovaries, so, I dont really know, even roughly when I will officially enter the menopause.

I am perimenopausal I know that, but the actual menopause it’s self, not sure. Anyone else had this?

I believe I had it already but it was not that obvious!

Hey Souxi smile MIL had the same thing done. She entered menopause early so they removed the uterus but left the ovaries.

I know she had real problems with lethargy and hormone shifts when she pins on the ovaries being left behind, but I’m more inclined to believe it’s because of her appalling diet!

Has the dr offered any hormone support? If not, there are a variety of herbal supplements you can use to great effect. I’d rather know more about your general health before I give a proper suggestion, but evening primrose oil is very gentle but effective and has few side effects.

Oh, and Annelee, please tell me to shut up if you like, but if I remember correctly you come from an Asian background?

I’m curious about your diet in relation to the menopause. There’s a lot of evidence that a traditional Japanese or Chinese diet is far superior for women, particularly around menopause because of the consumption of natural oestrogen mimicking foods. Things like Miso, Tofu, Soy/ Soybeans. Is this the kind of diet you have?

I was reading an article a while back which showed that in China and Japan it’s rare for women to have the severe reactions to menopause that western women have; the mood swings, the non-stop hot flushes etc. Curious!!

Evening Primrose Oil is meant to be very effective for the Menopause. You will have to consult your doctor to check it does not clash with other medications you take. Diet does play a big part in menopause symptoms. I’d say a healthy, balanced diet will help with the tiredness and hot flushes. There is no complete treatment but it can be made easier to deal with.
