How Bad Is Surgical Menopause?

Written by Grace Johnson - February 14, 2023

Surgical menopause is a condition in which the ovaries are surgically removed, leading to an abrupt and early onset of menopause. It is a major life changing event that can cause a variety of physical and emotional side effects.

For many women, surgical menopause brings with it hot flashes and night sweats, decreased libido, fatigue, cognitive issues such as memory loss or “brain fog,” vaginal dryness, joint pain and stiffness, depression and anxiety. In addition to these symptoms that come from a decrease in estrogen levels during menopause, women who experience surgical menopause also may have an increase in health risks associated with the surgery itself.

The good news for those facing surgical menopause is that there are options available to help manage some of the symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is one such option that can help relieve many of the more common side effects. The type of therapy used will depend upon the individual and what she opts for after consulting with her physician or healthcare provider.

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

HRT has been found to be very effective in helping to reduce the severity and frequency of hot flashes and night sweats as well as alleviating depression, anxiety, cognitive issues and vaginal dryness. This form of therapy also can help protect against bone density loss by replenishing bone-building hormones (estrogen). HRT may also reduce the risk for heart disease when taken in low doses combined with certain lifestyle changes — such as eating healthy foods, getting regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight.
