Hi, Anon,

Thanks so much for your question.

When you had your complete hysterectomy, you were put into a surgical menopause. But that doesn't mean you have no other sources of hormones in your body. And the levels of those hormones may be shifting now.

Did you take any hormone replacement therapy after your hysterectomy?
