It is very common for ovaries to die after being disengaged from the uterus by tubes tied or cut. When this happens, it is instant menopause. This can cause incontinence, vaginal dryness, etc. Not just sweats, which can be uncomfortable enough. Surgically induced menopause is a drastic experience and it affects skin moisture and other health issues besides enjoyment of the sex act.
Ovarian hormones are necessary, even though they decrease with age.
My doctor informed me of this only after I had the surgery...yeah, that's just not right. We should know what we are facing when we make these decisions.
My doctor said, 'oh no doctor would ever deny you hormones'. Guess what. Medical opinion changed, so it is much harder to get hormones.
In my opinion I should have kept my uterus and ovaries intact unless they had became a danger to my life. But that's me. Obviously you didn't want to risk a pregnancy and I respect that decision. It's just that the body adjusts to symptoms of normal menopause but the symptoms do not reduce over time with surgicaly induced menopause. This menopause is not like a normal mentral cessation where ovaries are intact, and still producing hormones. You will need to get hormone replacement to reduce the symptoms.
Medical doctors may poo poo the symtoms because of your age and/or their denial or ignorance that ovaries usually don't stay alive when tied off or cut from the other organs.
I have no insurance and a low income, so I use a credit card to pay for my appts. and meds. I consider this a vital health issue that cannot be ignored.
I suggest that you get an appt. right away with a naturopathic MD (both a naturopath and medical doctor) to make sure what is going on with you, and if needed, to see about getting bi-est or bio-identical hormones to replace the hormones, ASAP. Let them know you don't have insurance and ask if there is any cost reduction for cash. Maybe not but it is worth it to ask.
Let us know how you are doing.
