Premature Menopause In Younger Women

Oftentimes young women may have an increased risk for premature menopause following treatment for breast cancer. What are the risks of early menopause? How do you deal with the night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness?

  1. I feel great! Had a total hysterectomy Jan 2020 due to having fibroids... And considering i was told it would help my cancer treatment... I couldn't wait to lose the thing lol the only thing I get... Hot flashes. No night sweats or anything else. I keep a fan in the living room and the bedroom. I'm glad I haven't had any real problems. I've heard horror stories for sure.

    1. @Mrs.Bheathain, I am grateful that you aren't living with multiple side effects. Thank you for sharing this with us. Shayla (, Team Member)
