Question
Posted by: merry | 2009/11/25

age 58 what checkups?

I had a hysterectomy at age34 but the ovaries remained.
I have no problems in the female parts that I know of.
I am 58 and take solal natural hormone replacement- black cohosh and chasteberry and something that protects bones. It keeps hot flushes under control.
I want to know whether I ever need to see a gynae- I haven' t since the hysterectomy.
I just don' t want to miss any problem. I have normal medical annual checkups.

Gynae check-ups are a good idea. Your ovaries should still be checked as well as bone density, vaginal atrophy and other menopausal issues.
