horomonal changes No however she mayhave some of the symptoms due to changed hormone levels. Answer A radical hysterectomy will cause menopause to occur in a pre-menopausal patient. By definition, menopause is the cessation of menstruation. That it is caused by the natural decrease in hormones or by the surgical removal of the ovaries is irrelevant.
