Why do some women have hot flash and some don't have after menopause?

Unfair!: You point to the fact that some women have different hormonal and physiological environments during menopause. It's really not fair, right? I definitely have had patients who say they barely noticed the menopause transition, and others who curse the changes. Smoking, obesity and lack of exercise can all exacerbate hot flashes. Thus a healthy diet, exercise and good habits may lessen.

What do most women do about hot flashes?

Power Surges: Many women feel this is "normal" and suffer quietly thinking they will go away. Hot flushes interfere with sleep as the blood flow control is lost resulting in sudden opening of blood vessels exulting in heat release. Over the counter herbals and medications have unpredictable results. Talk to your gynecologist for recommendations.
