Angelina Jolie Says She ‘Actually Loves Being in Menopause’ Because of Her Surgeries

By Erin Elizabeth, Founder

In the video above please watch one of the world leading expert oncologists  for hereditary breast cancer why she feels Jolie’s surgery was unnecessary. Feel free to share  your thoughts below after you read the article.

In March of this year, Angelina Jolie revealed she underwent surgery involving the removal of her ovaries and fallopian tubes to lessen her chances of ovarian cancer.  Prior to that she was very open about her voluntary double mastectomy to prevent the risk of breast cancer.   The  latest procedure forced her into early menopause, which she said she is happy about.

“I actually love being in menopause,” Jolie said in an interview with the Daily Telegraph…. “I’m very fortunate.” The 40-year-old also described herself as feeling more “settled” now that she’s older. “I feel happy that I’ve grown up. I don’t want to be young again,” she said.

Jolie has been very open with the public about her health, penning two NYT op-eds, the firstafter she had a double mastectomy in 2013 — another preventive surgery that dropped her chances of developing breast cancer from 87 percent to under 5 percent. When she removed her ovaries and fallopian tubes, she wroteabout her decision and how it would affect her family. “I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family,” she wrote at the time. “I know my children will never have to say, ‘Mom died of ovarian cancer.”

Jolie also spoke about how her health issues have affected her relationship with her husband, Brad Pitt. “[Brad] made it very, very clear to me that what he loved and what was a woman to him was somebody who was smart, and capable, and cared about her family, that it’s not about your physical body,” she said. “So I knew through the surgeries that this wasn’t going to be something that made me feel like less of a woman, because my husband wouldn’t let that happen.”

    Thrilled you’re enjoying life sans ovaries whilst many of the women who undergo these prophylactic measures suffer in silence. These surgeries are not easy and the long-term negative implications are not to be minimized.

  • Hi can you please post my comment? Thank you.

  • Just did a summit with Dr L. Love that man : )

    Surgeries of this type, compared to just a few years ago, have far fewer complications and much shorter recovery cycles due to more advanced surgical techniques like laparoscopy.

    Hi Erin, Thanks for sharing this. I have BRCA 1 and just found out this year (I’m 38). Natural health has healed my severe Crohn’s disease and I’m really struggling with this latest diagnosis. I want to believe I can tackle it with natural health as I did other things… of course every top Dr I see recommends preventative surgeries of all kinds. There is not much support for people who choose to do “surveillance”. I am saving this and flagging this doctor, because I question what the true statistics are too- it is going to be different for each person. Sigh!

  • Sadly not her double mastectomy and then putting in implants which have been found to be harmful (but yes, the ovaries and fallopian tube removal would be less invasive than before- though it can throw you into early menopause (as it did for her) and many other negative impacts.

    Is she getting bioidentical hormones? Bones/brain/energy etc may go downhill without hormones. She did not change her diet so gluten may cause cancer in other parts of her body since it lowers the immune system/nutrients absorbed. She has little fat to make estrogen. Estrogen dominance due to meat/dairy/soy/BPA/chemicals/The Pill and more may raise estrogen.
