Worried about menopause at a young age.

Hi,

I'm 35 and am having a LAVH/BSO on Sept 19. I am starting to get really scared about the resulting menopause as I have just finished treatment for estrogen and progesterone positive breast cancer and will not be able to take any hormones - in fact, my reasons for having this procedure include being put into menopause so that I can take a stronger anti-estrogen drug.

But now I'm scared that I will have horrible menopause symptoms. I know I need to do this for my best chance at survival (I am also at an extremely high risk of BRCA1 or BRCA2 - tests are still being run on those two and regardless of the results, the cancer is genetic).

The surgery part scares me less than after the surgery. I am so worried that I will be unhappy with the results. And what if the cancer comes back anyways and I've spent the years in between unhappy?

Re: Worried about menopause at a young age.

Although my reasons are very different I too am unable to take hormones and had a complete hysterectomy almost 4 weeks ago. I have had menopausal symptoms but I have found some natural help. The chillow from this site really is nice but I also started a natural supplement recommended by a lady in my church, proestron, you can find it on amazon and it had helped. I will talk more with my doc at my next follow up next week. Ill let you know what options she gives me. Best wishes and lots of prayers!
