Surgical menopause, PCOS for over 20 years.

Postby twinstwice22 » Wed Jun 08, 2016 12:14 pm

Ladies I'm wondering is there is a specific board I should post to to see if anyone has any advice on the menopause after years of PCOS. I'm 3 weeks post op after a total hysterectomy. I'm wondering, with the distinct lack of ovaries now, will my PCOS symptoms go too? Would quite enjoy being less hairy!

Sadly not as it is an endocrine disorder and not really ovary related (the cysts are only a symptom and not the cause) very misleading name so it is under review for a name change currently
