I know us laydees all reach the menopause, is there anything I can do to hurry it up?
I have no use for my lady engine, it serves no purpose now.
I have regular hot flushes, god awful headaches and today I want to kill Mr Boots!
I have the marina coil and use to love it but last 6mths or so I've been back and forth to MO and had the med' centre probbing my bits numerous swabs, bloods etc sent away but all returned normal.
Next step is a request for a hysterical!Mimi: "I'm a fat f*ck. I'm a f*cking fat f*cker".

Going to have to be the hysterical or the snip for Mr B.
And forget all those HRT thingys, they just seduce you into youth and postpone the inevitable (apparently. She says. Still trying for the last throws of a family before colliding with 40)."Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws."

Hysterical all the way!!
I had one 2 years ago, the lot out oophs and all! Have patches, change twice a week, no hassles no dramas and have not one single solitary regret! If you're able to, go for the 'keyhole' option, much shorter recovery time. I couldn't for various reasons and had to have the full abdominal, but even so, the recovery time was nowhere near as bad as I'd been led to believe. First week was sore, and I was very tired for about a fortnight. Suffered badly with wind pains, but that was more to do with mother force feeding me dried prunes and apricots to 'keep me regular'!! Witch!

I am at least 25 years away from menopause (hopefully!) but had a lecture about that very thing today...
Not sure there is anything you can do to speed up the process, but having a hysterectomy certainly wouldn't hurt (in the proverbial sense - apparently being cut open can hurt a tad!). Not only that, but should you want go down the HRT route you will have an oestogen only method (as opposed to oestrogen and progesterone)...and it's progesterone that causes most of the nasty side effects - so that's a good thing! And you also avoid some of the more icky parts of aging like prolapse (i dont advise people to google-image that!) Also rule out getting endometrial or ovarian cancer (if you get the oophs out too) later in life.
HRT and other non-hormone treatment can reduce symptoms though - although the non-hormone treatments have side effects of their own.

Oh and also - the benefits gained from 10-12 years on HRT have a carry over effect - so the real rubbish bits of aging i.e. osteoprorosis, heart disease etc. don't manifest until you're really old.
According to my lecturer - though she may have shares in a pharmaceutical company, i'm not sure!!
