I had a hysterectomy 5 years ago at the age of 39. My left ovary was left in place to lessen my chances of having to use HRT. I never had any symptoms of menopause at all but now 5 years later at the age of 44 I'm having terrible hot flashes. Is it possible to start having symptoms after so many years?
This is happening to me as well, the exact same thing. I had my last child in 2010 and I had my uterus removed at that time, I still have my ovaries. Not periods for 5 years and for the past 2 months, I have been experiencing severe hot flashes! When will they go away and why are they here now? I'm awakened at night as well with the sweating.
