Treatment induced menopause
Did you experience early menopause as a result of your cancer treatment? If so, did it reverse after some time out of active treatment or was it permanent? What was your experience like?
I’ve been out of treatment for a year now and began experiencing symptoms during chemotherapy. After finishing treatment, the symptoms persisted. I finally had the menopause confirmed via blood tests and got approved for hormone replacement therapy 5 months later. While I’m so grateful to have it now, I’m angry it took me so long to get taken seriously, and I see a lot of room for improvement surrounding patient education.
