The symptoms of ovarian failure following a hysterectomy may include hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness. Menstrual patterns may change, and if ovaries were taken out, they will stop menstruating. Mood changes may include mood swings and irritability. Besides, low levels of estrogen may cause changes in libido. Ovarian failure can also impair bone health, which may influence bone density. If these manifestations occur, it is critical to seek the advice of your health care provider for proper assessment and intervention.

  • Sometimes, the ovaries stop working long before the actual age of menopause is attained (the average age is 51).
  • If you are below 40 and your ovaries no longer produce eggs, and if your periods have stopped, then it may be due to primary ovarian insufficiency.
  • Women with this condition may still have periods and may even get pregnant.
  • The most common signs are missed or infrequent periods.
  • Periods may start and stop again for many years.
  • Other symptoms can seem like those of menopause and may include:
    • Hot flashes,
    • Night sweats,
    • Anxiety, or mood swings,
    • Concentration issues,
    • Reduced sex drive,
    • Issues with sleeping,
    • Vaginal dryness.

Hope this answers your query!


Since hysterectomy leaves your abdomen hanging, thus you can consider getting a tummy tuck as well!
