Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about prevention and wellness for women.

What are a woman’s hormone options when she experiences a surgical menopause?

Surgical menopause is menopause that didn’t occur naturally, but rather, was induced by having the ovaries removed, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

There also are a variety of ways to treat menopause symptoms, according to the NIH. Those include:

  • Diet and lifestyle changes
  • Hormone therapy
  • Hormone therapy alternatives, including antidepressants, blood pressure medication, and hot flash-reducing medication

Women who choose hormone therapy have a variety of options for receiving the replacement hormones after surgical menopause, include taking them orally or vaginally, or using topical or vaginal sprays, creams, or gels, according to Premier Health Specialists’ (PHS) physicians.

Talk to your physician for more information about hormone options after surgical menopause.
