Surgical menopause BookletDownload booklet
Although most women go through their menopause naturally, many women experience an earlier menopause as the result of an operation or other medical treatment. If an operation has removed your ovaries or other medical interventions have stopped them working, the onset of menopause and menopausal symptoms can be very sudden compared to a natural menopause.
Recovering from an operation or illness can often be challenging in itself and experiencing a sudden menopause in addition to this can be very difficult for many women without the correct treatment. Fortunately, a surgical menopause can most often be managed very effectively with the use of HRT.
