What Can I Expect After Surgical Menopause?

Surgical menopause is when both of your ovaries are removed or the fallopian tubes are blocked, either through a partial or complete hysterectomy. The surgical removal of your ovaries causes an abrupt drop in hormone levels and can have far-reaching effects on your mental, physical, and emotional health. Here’s what you can expect after surgical menopause:

  • Hot Flashes and Night Sweats: You can expect to experience sudden hot flashes that cause a feeling of warmth throughout your body accompanied by night sweats which can make it difficult to sleep without disruption.

    Mood Swings: Hormone fluctuations during menopause can lead to mood swings, depression, anxiety, and irritability.

    Loss of Libido: Lower levels of estrogen cause decreased sexual desire and arousal as well as vaginal dryness.

    Bone Loss: When going through menopause, you may experience bone loss due to the lower levels of estrogen which leads to decreased calcium absorption. This increases the risk for fractures.

    Changes in cholesterol levels: Surgical menopause also affects cholesterol levels leaving you vulnerable to heart disease and stroke so closely monitoring these levels is important.
