I am 46 and havent had my period for 2 months, i have been having horrible hot flashes for the past 3 weeks, especially at night, i wake up every hour soaking wet. I get them during the day too. Is there anything natural out there to take? This happened to me last year at this same time and got my period after 4 months and the flashes went away. My gyno says this can last 10 years... what fun... help!!! thank you!!!!
I know, it sure stinks, doesn't it?
I find that Estroven helps me. It's over the counter, has black cohosh and soy and various other ingredients. My hot flashes and night sweats seem to go in cycles where they seem non-stop for a few months and then I have a bit of a reprieve. Hormones are a crazy thing, that's for sure.
I do notice that my breasts are tender on the Estroven. Hopefully it is just a benign estrogenic consequence.
hang in there, Sue
