Hi kqute

Thanks for your post and welcome!

I'm sorry you are going through so much discomfort.

It sounds like you are in menopause, is that correct? Your symptoms, even with one ovary, are very similar to those of menopause:

dry skin
vaginal dryness
weight gain
memory loss/fogginess

Have you had a full hormonal work up? You need to do this to see where you stand in terms of menopause - you haven't mentioned that but you may be fully in menopause already.

Also, having a thyroid condition can cause very similar symptoms, especially with depression, weight gain, and so-called "brain-fog".

Please call your doctor and schedule an appointment for this kind of testing so that you can get started on getting better, and please stay in touch with us!
