HRT?
Hi Doc, I had a hysterectomy 12 years ago. My fallopian tubes are still intact. I have been experiencing night sweats, hot flushes and unexplained tiredness for the past 6 mths. I am Hypertensive + have a heart disease as well as high levels of cholesterol. I am on chronic medication. I am 42 years and would like to know if I could be menopausal and from what age does menopause start. I am not on any HRT. Thank you.

This does sound like menopause. It can start any time after 40 years. You can easily check with a blood test.
