Hysterctomy Induced Menopause – The
Surgical menopause is menopause due to surgical removal of the ovaries which
occurs after a hysterectomy procedure. Hysterectomies are the second most
common surgery in women second to cesarean sections. One in three women in the
United States has a hysterectomy by the age of 60. A total hysterectomy is a
surgical procedure in which a woman's reproductive organs including her
uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries are removed. A partial hysterectomy is a
surgical procedure where only the uterus is removed and the ovaries are left
intact. Removal of the ovaries, also known as oophorectomy, is often done
together with removal of the uterus to decrease the risk of ovarian cancer and
to minimize the risk of other complications. The ovaries are the main source
of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone production in the female body.
Removal of the ovaries results in a drastic decline in these hormones and a
disruption of a woman’s hormone levels resulting in many unpleasant menopausal
symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, decreased energy, fatigue,
decreased sex drive, weight gain, bloating, decreased concentration, worsening
memory, difficulty sleeping, depressed mood and joint aches. Surgical
menopause symptoms are the same as menopausal symptoms but are often more
sudden and intense.
