Hi, I had a hysterectomy when I was 31 but my ovaries were left. Two years later, my right ovary was removed under emergency then the same happened with the left ovary a couple of years later. I was 36 when this put me straight into the menopause so was put on HRT. After gaining 2 stone and horrendouse migraines, I came off it and have had nothing since. I am now 44 and still haven't lost all the weight. I rarely get hot flushes but still very hot at night! I wonder how long before it will end?
