Hot flashes

Postby emerald » Mon Aug 06, 2012 4:16 pm

My cousin who is undergoing menopause is experiencing symptoms relating to hot flashes.
Being ignorant & clueless about it, I did some research on the internet.
But I would appreciate if friends here could share valuable experiences and ways to overcome them so I could better advise my cousin.

TIA.

there are plenty of supplements out there that can "help" the symptoms of menopause, but my mum swore by just drinking lots of water and having something called "unifem". it is from a company called nutrition care, but can only buy from medical practitioners. Not in guardian or watsons, but maybe they also have something similar. If you want for your cousin I can ask my mums gynae (visiting her next week) and see if there is any way to get this without seeing dr? Otherwise my mother in law is taking hormone replacement, but there are side effects from this also. Both have good and bad points...

Thanks for the replies. :smile:

Friends have suggested evening primrose oil, so my cousin is trying it out.

According to my cousin, her condition improved after taking the primrose oil.
Maybe u can try getting a small bottle to try it out first.

Hot flashes are caused due to decreases in estrogen and progesterone.
When these hormones are decreased it causes gland in the body, the hypothalamus, which acts a thermostat has difficulty determining whether we are hot or cold.
Which caused in Menopause. Some women suffer only mildly , while others find they are hot and drenched in the cold of winter.
