  • The facial hair doesn't come until AFTER menopause lol. I know. I had to have a complete hysterectomy at an early age and it didn't really change that much for me. The biggest thing I think, is you start menopause earlier than the average woman with all the parts might.
    But remember we all are different. If you have any concerns don't be embarrassed to discuss them before hand with your doctor. Make sure YOU are satisfied with the answers he/she gives. After all, you are paying their salary :).
