Thousands of women have their uterus and ovaries removed every year and immediately get forced into menopause. Their estradiol, progesterone and testosterone levels bottom out and they become very symptomatic. Unfortunately, many of their doctors do not explain the impending feeling of being miserable. They experience no sex drive, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, fatigue, weight gain and mood swings (and about 50 other symptoms). In addition their risks for bone loss, heart disease and dementia sky rocket.
The good news is that there is a solution and they can feel amazing again. I have become an expert in treating women who undergo surgical menopause using bio-identical hormones and get amazing results. They are the most satisfying patients to treat because they go from feeling amazing to horrible to amazing very quickly.
The first step for any women who has had their ovaries removed is to have all their hormone levels checked via a simple blood test. Ask your doctor to check estradiol, progesterone, total and free testosterone, DHEA-S, IGF-1 and TSH/free T4 and free T3 and morning cortisol. Once you have those results we can simply replenish your levels to what you had prior to surgery.
