Hot Flashes and Night Sweats
The combined discomfort of sudden heat flooding your body and uncontrollable sweats at night is uncomfortable, making you feel that you have no control over body temperature. Not to mention affecting your happiness level overall.
Speaking of your mood, one surprising symptom you encounter is a sudden change in mood. You might find yourself angry, sad, or upset at a seemingly innocuous situation. Try to remember that it’s a symptom of what you’re going through, and not your true self.
There are other symptoms that are unpleasant such as bloating, loss of sex drive, incontinence, extreme fatigue, and irregular periods, among others that you’ll experience in varying degrees. The good news is there’s hope and relief around the corner.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
To help women undergoing these new changes, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a combination of estrogen and progesterone. Our Doctors use HRT to control the symptoms of menopause such as vaginal dryness or night sweats. What’s wonderful is women have the choice of how to receive HRT. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is available in pill, patch, and spray from. Each option can give different doses, dependant on your symptoms. Typically for hot flashes, a higher dosage is recommended.
Who Should Get HRT?
Hormone replacement therapy is a viable option for women up to age 59 or within 10 years of menopause, and healthy women who are experiencing moderate to extreme menopausal symptoms.

The date of menopause is the day after the final cycle of menstrual flow ends. “Perimenopause” is a term used to describe the menopause transition years – which is the time both before and after a woman’s last period ever – that occurs while hormone levels are still fluctuating inconsistently.
“Premenopause” is the word used to describe the years leading up to menopause.
“Postmenopause” is the part of a woman’s life that ensues after the date of menopause. When a woman with her uterus intact has spent a year with no menstrual flow, she is considered to be one year postmenopausal.
