Individual responses will vary. However since the hormonal state produced in chemical menopause and surgical menopause (when both ovaries are removed) are very similar, we could expect those with PMDD who experience relief of PMDD symptoms in chemical menopause to have a very strong likelihood of experiencing remission following surgery (ovary removal).

However, there is no guarantee of cure and it is important to note that it can take a while for HRT levels to stabilize and to find the correct dosage/method for you. It is important to be under the care of a knowledgeable provider when in surgical menopause.
