Re: hot flashes at age 33
I am kind of thinking that when you were PG, it might have been gestational diabetes because it was only when you had to eat. As for now, it is probably due to the depo provera and the long time you have been on it. I was on it for five years a long time ago, but I don't remember having problems like that. If you haven't been to your gyn in several years, I would definetely be planning to see him or her every year for a pap smear because you could be having cervical cancer or breast cancer and you wouldn't know it. You need to be checked out regularily. I'm sorry, if you are, please forgive me, but what you said about asking your gyn about the hot flashes years ago sounded like you haven't been seeing anyone in recent years. It is so important to get a checkup regularly, especially as you are in your 30's now. I am only sayin this because I care. Good luck!!!
