Hot flashes are the most common symptom reported during peri and postmenopause.
Hot flashes during sleep are called night sweats. Some hot flashes are mild others are so severe they can be debilitating.
There’s no reliable way to tell when they will start or end. For most women they start during perimenopause and may last several years. Sorry!
Lifestyle changes, exercise, prescription and non-prescription therapies may be helpful.
