I was diagnosed at age 31 and had both ovaries removed last summer (at age 32). I had pretty strong hot flashes for about 6 months, but I hardly ever have them now. I take Arimidex daily and have some joint/back pain, but I don't know if that's from the drug or the menopause.
I work full time and married with 3 kids and my quality of life has not changed much...but I had mine removed right after going through chemo then radiation, so anything feels like an improvement after that...I am tired a lot more than I used to be, but I am still able to work out almost daily and go about my day as normal.
Diagnosed at age 31.
