Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

A hysterectomy without ovary removal will not affect menopause in terms of when it stops/starts or it's duration.

The average woman starts menopause around the age of 52 and it can last anywhere from a year to ten+ years. It depends on the woman - hereditary is another factor.
