How long should you bleed after abdominal hysterectomy?

I had a completely hyst and bleeding after the day of surgery is not normal! You should not bleed after the surgery. There would no longer be a uterus to allow for "normal" menstrual bleeding and there should be packing materials (which the doctor should remove at your follow up appointment) to soak up any surgical blood. Go to the emergency room immediately! If your surgical Dr thinks this is ok then find a new doctor!

How early in life does a woman go through menopause?

Normally around age 50.

But it can occasionally happen very early (even mid 20s), and prevent the woman from having any children. Or it can be delayed until almost 60. It tends to be hereditary so if your mother had an early or late menopause then you are more likely to follow that pattern.

The first symptoms are periods becoming more irregular, sometimes early, sometimes late, then missing altogether sometimes for months at a time. After a couple of years the periods stop altogether and never reappear. Some people never have any other symptoms, but others have hot flushes, sudden rages etc. Hormone replacement can help.

I will add that natural cure is best. The Hormone replacement therapy has been linked to some health problems like heart disease. Get more education before you try it. I also refer you to the book:

How long does it take to recover from a hysterectomy?

Recovery time for a woman who has a hysterectomy varies depending mostly upon the type of procedure which was performed. For traditional surgeries, the patient can leave the hopital within three days, but it can take several months to fully recover. With the more modern robotic procedure, the recovery time can be as little as 10 days because the procedure is much less invasive.

Can you ovulate after having a hysterectomy?

where do the eggs go

If you get a total hysterectomy, the removal of the uterus including the cervix, you can still ovulate because the ovaries and fallopian tubes are still there. The eggs would just be reabsorbed into the body. If an oophorectomy is done, then you will not ovulate because the ovaries have been removed.

If you only need Estrogen replacement due to a hysterectomy then why would your doctor prescribe the Ortho Vera patch 175 mg?

I would assume it's because you need estrogen. With Ortho Vera you are about 60% more exposed to estrogen then being on the pill. However, you should ask your doctor?
