What is Surgical Menopause?
Surgical menopause refers to menopause that is brought on by damage to the ovaries. This can be caused by surgical removal of one or both ovaries, but can also be caused by other reproductive surgeries and procedures. Surgical menopause is unique in that it happens abruptly, unlike natural menopause where there is a gradual reduction in the production of estrogen and progesterone.
The Effect of Hormones on Your Health
A woman’s ovaries contain follicles, which in turn store eggs. When menopause is reached, the number of follicles within the ovaries declines, and the reproductive hormones luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) can no longer regulate the production of estrogen and progesterone. As a consequence, levels of estrogen and progesterone decline.
Surgical menopause can mean a premature loss of estrogen and progesterone, potentially exacerbating symptoms like brain fog, and increasing risk factors for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, dementia, and early mortality.
