Up at night to urinate

I had my hysterectomy 10 weeks ago.  I was put in surgical menopause.  My symptoms such as night sweets came on gradually.  For the past 4 weeks I'm getting them every night .


This week, I'm now waking up in the middle of the night to urinate. Did anyone have this issue when newly in menopause?  Being awaken at night to urinate?

I did not have night sweats with menopause but I did have to go to pee at least once. Try to avoid liquids for a few hrs before bedtime.
But, I did and still do have hot flashes galore during the daySealed

I can’ t remember exactly but I do get up to urinate more frequently. I think it was from radiation treatments but could have been from surgically induced menopause. I try not to drink many fluids in the evening.

Hot flashes were managed by taking Effexor or Venaflexin 37.5 mg daily for a couple years. It is an “off label“ use of the anti-depressant medication. No side effects experienced from Venaflexin (spelling?)  Use of estrogen creams are contraindicated for women with endometrial cancer typically.

Thank you so much for responding. Everything that is new just makes me want to see if it's typical symptom of menopause .


You folks are great!
