I'm a 19 heard old trans man who's recently had a full hysterectomy by laparotomy. I am finally resting from the bothers of a c-section but now I've started to actually feel the effects of menopause and I am at complete loss.
The hot flashes are horrible. I get them maybe 20 times a day and there's no way to calm them down. they are accompanied by sharp chest pain and fast breathing, and I cannot for the life of me find anything about that. It feels like I'm having an anxiety episode, twenty times a day. I wasn't really warned about this at all and I don't know what else I'm missing, or what's to come. I also suffer from a major depressive disorder, and I had been moderately good until now; I've had a really bad mood fall these last weeks. It's making it hard to cope.
I've read that surgical menopause lasts until its normal age of decline, is that true? is there anything I can do to calm these symptoms? I'm barely managing and I have so little information, I'd love some experiences from other people.
Thank you and please have a good day!
