These hot flashes are terrible.

It feel like my back is in the oven every few minutes. One minute I feel the air coming in the window a few minutes later I am on fire. I was just about to turn the air on. I though about the fact that I know it's not that hot in here. I will stick it out the best I can. I might as well refresh my drink too. Did you deal with hot flashes in your lifetime?

Yeh I had them and I'm glad that phase of my life is over. It's the best thing about being an older woman. And you don't have to buy all those related PRODUCTS either. Freedom! lol. I had some pretty bad mood swings too, I could hardly live with myself!

I was lucky because I had a very trouble free menopause, no hot flashes, just the cessation of my periods at the age of 56/57. Some people have a terrible time, I remember my mother did and eventually had a hysterectomy. I hope your menopause will be as symptom free as possible Sharon.

I was very lucky in that I had a very trouble free menopause. I can't remember having any hot flashes. The only symptom I had was the stopping of my periods at the age of 56/57. I consider myself lucky as I know some women have a terrible time. I notice my skin has become very dry which I think is due to lack of estrogen.
