How do I classify myself??

Hi sisters,

I wonder if you all can clarify this for me. At the time of my TAH 2 months ago, I had just barely begun having symptoms of perimenopause. Now, after my TAH, I am on estrogen.

Do I consider myself post-menopausal?

Reason I ask is, I do a lot of reading about breast health and hormones, and most of the articles I read classify the subject group as either pre or post-menopausal.

But since I've never had any real symptoms of menopause (estrogen is dealing with that nicely), I don't think I'll truly be in menopause until I stop the estrogen.

So where do I classify myself?

Re: How do I classify myself??

You have entered surgical menopause. Using hormone replacement doesn't change that status. Post menopausal women still produce some estrogen from their ovaries. Women in surgical menopause don't. The articles that you're reading are usually talking about women who still have ovaries intact but are post menopausal.
