Induced Menopause

Induced menopause is usually defined as menopause which occurs as the result of an unusual event, such as, ovarian damage from medication, chemotherapy, or radiation exposure, ovarian malfunction or by surgical removal of both ovaries (bilateral oopherectomy), which may also be referred to as, surgically induced menopause.

Induced menopause, (both surgically and non-surgically), can occur at any age after puberty and before natural, spontaneous menopause occurs.

With (non-surgically) induced menopause, there may be a short transition as damaged ovaries shut down production of hormones over a period of time. By contrast, surgically induced menopause occurs immediately following surgery.

Going through it naturally is hard enough at my age. I can't comprehend how difficult it would be to be thrown into it immediately after, say, surgery and at a much younger age!!!
good information !!!

I know people that have had the surgically induced menopause and the hormonal reaction is horrible. I think it should be a last resort measure, personally.

Thankyou for following Mom in Management! I'm following you back.

Ugh... the phase that no one talks about... I am 47 almost 48 and dealing with perimenopause... ugh. So. Not. Fun. lol Because I have little kids, most of my 'peers' are younger and haven't a clue what I am talking about or going through! And can't imagine it ever happening to them! lol

Great post!
