Hi Tammy

I'd say probably but the person that could answer that for sure would be our own Dr. Judy, you might want to post the question along with some particulars there.

Hi Tammy,

By a partial hysterectomy, I assume you mean surgical removal of the uterus while leaving the ovaries behind. That can speed the onset of symptoms; for some reason, ovaries post-hysterectomy are more prone to quitting business, at times within months of the surgery.

If you're having symptoms, even if you're 'too young for menopause,' ask your doctor to check your hormone levels.

Best,
Judy
