The seven dwarfs

Now I’m not yet fully menopausal, but I’m heading that way. I had a hysterectomy 4 years ago and was told I would likely start menopause within 5 years due to the decreased blood supply. At the moment I get occasional night sweats, and I can be forgetful.

I do know I still have mood swings, but now I have no periods to track them around, but I also know I have periods where I am quite likely to cry my heart out over something trivial.

The thing that affected my mental health most was being overweight and feeling fat, grumpy and unattractive.

Thankfully after my hysterectomy I re-joined slimming world and lost 5 stone in 15 months. This did wonders for my self esteem, my mood and my health in general.

I take antidepressants daily and have no plans to stop anytime soon. They keep me ticking along quite nicely.

This isn’t a long post, I know, I do count myself as very lucky in that I don’t think my hormones have or do affect my depression to a greater or lesser degree. I know this isn’t the case for everyone.

  1. As long as you still have your ovaries, you will go into menopause when you have no more eggs. I had a hysterectomy at 38 (16 years ago) and I had them leave my ovaries and cervix. I just started menopause a year ago. So, it really depends.

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience, thatโ€™s good to know, they removed my cervix but left the ovaries because I was still considered young at 41. I think family history wise they have gone through menopause early 50s… and the dr has done blood tests which havenโ€™t shown any significant hormonal changes so maybe I will be as lucky as you and get a few years more ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. I started peri-menopause between 36 and 38. I didn’t have a hysterectomy and, yes, I went to doctors (several without answers). It takes years. To move to the next step, and is only a journey for the brave!
