If you mean how long do the symptoms last, this varies from person to person. Some women only have symptoms for a few months, others for many years. There are advantages to HRT even if you do not have symptoms, e.g. protection from osteoporosis.

Hi Doc

I have a prolapsed uterus, and require a hysterectomy. Could you advise what the total cost would be at a private hospital. (Not on med aid)

Thanks
