In Office Procedures:Menopause

Menopause is the permanent shutting down of the reproductive system in women. The average age when this occurs is 51-52 years old. Symptoms include, and are not limited to, hot flashes, mood swings, irregular periods, vaginal dryness, and problems sleeping. Hormone replacement therapy may be a helpful way for you to deal with these symptoms.

Surgical or induced menopause is when you experience menopause because you have had a hysterectomy with removal of the ovaries. If you are able to keep your ovaries during your hysterectomy you will go through menopause at your naturally determined age.
