Women postmenopausal women, with flushing, using laser Doppler had earlier ovarian failure after unilateral oophorectomy (95% CI imaging with iontophoresis, before and after 8 weeks of treatment 1.48–4.00) and after vaginal hysterectomy (95% CI 1.38–2.99) with venlafaxine; 75 mg.

Earlier endothelial independent response (Sodium Nitroprusside, SNP) ovarian failure occurred in those women having unilateral (Table 1).
