  • I have herd that as long as your ovaries are still intact. You will not go into menopause.

  • I had a "supra-cervical hysterectomy" when I was 45. I'm 51. I had my uterus removed, only. I kept my cervix, which meant I couldn't have it done vaginally. It was attempted laprascopically, but dur to uncontrollable bleeding (I had icky issues), they had to do the big cut, which I gave permission in advance for. So I have my cervix, tubes, ovaries. She told me when I woke up I'd have one or 2 "menopause" symptomes. I had a wicked hot flash 2 times in the hospital. Threw up, and it stopped. I've only started having hot flashes a couple months ago. Again.....6 years after surgery, at age 51. I have a very healthy sex life. I have no problem with dryness, libido, no weight gain. I do have sleeplessness sometimes, and a little brain fog....but I also have meds for a back problem, so I can't tell where those symptoms really come from. I have never taken hormones.
