Hot flushes
I had a hysterectomy over three years ago and still have my ovaries. I am only 27yrs old. For the last three months, I've been going through stages of hot flushes, particularly at night. Could this be hormone related and should I be on some kind of hormone treatment?

It might be a good idea to check your hormones. The age of menopause does tend to be earlier after a hysterectomy.
