Huge mental and emotional fluctuations for some women following early menopause

Women who have early menopause following a hysterectomy or other procedure can suffer mental and emotional fluctuations afterwards, Menopause Support founder Diane Danzebrink told a Scottish radio audience.

Phoning into the breakfast programme on BBC Radio Scotland, Di said that some women in this position need to work through a loss and grief process.

“You are experiencing the physical loss of a part of you and also experiencing a loss of potential for carrying your child. If that was a part of your game plan, something you always wanted, there may be a loss and grief process you need to address” she added.

The programme can be heard here. Di’s interview on the 16th February comes near the end of the programme, around one hour and 45 minutes in.
