I am 56 I had a hysterectomy 20yrs ago But I had my ovaries taken out 6yrs ago. I was on tamoxifen for 5yrs and have been off of it for 2yrs. I am now having hot flashes and mood swing again. Am I going thru menopause again and what can I do to help the hot flashes. Thanks
It would be unusual for hot flashes to start up again at this point in time. Check with your physician about other causes and potential medication side effects.
