I think something that is not talked about more often is the decrease in sex drive! I had my ovaries removed, and got shoved into menopause at 32. My whole body changed, and my viewpoint surrounding it did as well. My sex drive also TANKED, and that’s not something that is brought up more which is really strange to me. It’s a part of my life, and it’s difficult now. Hot flashes are a pain, sure, but a decrease in intimacy is also really difficult for both the patient and their partner!
