Chemo induced menopause

I am just wondering if any of you were thrown into menopause from the chemo? I need to go see a Doc and see about some relief.
My irritability is bothering me the most (probably bothers others more). Of course, I have a host of other symptoms as well.
How have the rest of you dealt with this?

My menopause was not caused by the chemo, but by the radiation. The very first treatment, as I understand it, takes the ovaries out of commission. I have not heard of the chemo causing menopause in anal cancer patients who get chemo/rad.

Well, I figured the radiation shriveled em up, but I thought the chemo helped kill em too. Anyway, I do not think I like this. Hard to be grateful, and hateful, but I manage to do both between mood swings.
Also, I do not know why this posted twice, whatever.
