Menopause too early after having cervical cancer

I've Just found out that I am going through the menopause. The doctor thought it was my B12 that was low with my symptoms but blood tests confirmed it. So 3yrs after being diagnosed my ovaries packed in. Anyone else going through it 10 years too early? I've not had any meds sorted yet as they want to do my bloods again in 4 weeks but the symptoms are getting worse especially with work and family life.

cervical cancer

Last year my mum was diagnosed with cervical cancer stage ll-lll. She went through radiation therapy course without a problem (no surgery). A few months ago she got a post radiation side affect as a rectal bleeding and a month after she got a blood clot in her leg. She was taking blood thinners for a month which made her bleed even more. She had to stop. Now the cancer went into her lymph nodes and shutting down her right kidney. The doctor said he couldn't do radiation of her lymph nodes or...

Cervical HPV

Hi all, I think I contracted HPV 2 years ago but it was confirmed as high risk in a letter from my GP along with abnormal smear test results and HPV test.. I have read numerous threads on the internet regarding this and though it seems quite common among women my age (27) I am really worried about what the outcome will be. After all medicals tests my OBGYN told me a patient of hers began taking Cervugid Ovules for the same problems and at her next visit (6 months later), the results were...

Cervical Cancer Stage 3

I just found out last week that I have stage 3 cervical cancer. Oncologist and family want me to just jump into treatment of radiation and chemo. I have read various blogs where women talk about the radiation damage after treatment. It seem pretty bad. I want quality of life. If the treatment kills the cancer but damages organs and causes other major damage, I am not sure I want to go that way. I am 63 almost 64 and have other health issues already on top of the cancer. Are there any...
