Surgical Menopause at age 43After decades of endometriosis, ectopic pregnancies, the removal of both fallopian tubes and IVF treatments that resulted in the birth of 2 children I am left with part of an ovary and my uterus. I underwent surgery a few months ago because there were abnormal growths on the other ovary and what they found was something that didn't even resemble an ovary so they removed it and removed just the cysts from the other. It isn't cancer but the best way to describe it as precancerous. Now an ultrasound shows an image of the part of the ovary that I have left and it looks very similar to the ultrasound of the previous ovary that was removed. My doctors feel that it needs to be removed because of the fast growth and have suggested a full hysterectomy as well. After researching on the internet I've decided that since nothing is wrong with my uterus I will not have it removed. I will be 44 in Nov. I don't know if it's because I'm 20 lbs overweight from having my 2nd child last yr or if I am starting to go through menopause early (I began menses at a very early age) but I have night sweats, mood swings, I get very hot easily but don't think I have hot flashes as of yet, vaginal dryness, thining hair and fatigue. IVF procedures took a toll on my body. I was diagnosed with major depression/anxiety several years ago and am currently taking Prozac in the evening and Wellbutrin in the morning in addition to therapy. I can tell a big difference being on the meds and feel leveled out. Are there remedies that I can take before surgery in addition to remedies for after surgery? I will have to undergo hormone replacement therapy but i am uneasy about the side affects. I'm worried that the surgical menopause will tip the scales for me mentally and emotionally along with the many physical impairments that can arise. I'm also worried about the impact it will have on my libido. Are there any suggestions for dealing the repercusions of surgically enduced menopause?
Thank you for any help.
