      Hi Alyson When an ovary is left, you would normally have the menopause at roughly the same as you would have done, had you not had the operation. The average age for this is 45-55 so you are in the normal age range. Unfortunately, without missing periods as a guide it is difficult to tell if you are in the menopause. You can only go by specific menopause symptoms (flushes and sore breasts are very common ones) but the only way to tell for sure would be to ask your doctor for a hormone test.
