Study Examines Mood Symptoms After Hysterectomy Or Natural Menopause.

Reuters (5/1, Seaman) reports that women who undergo a hysterectomy that plunges them into immediate surgical menopause are no more likely to experience depression or anxiety than women who go through menopause naturally over a number of years, according to a study published in the May issue of the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology. Researchers arrived at that conclusion after examining data on some 2,000 women in middle-age and following them for about a decade.
