Do you get hot flashes before u start ur period?

Do you get hot flashes before u start ur period?

Yes you can: Hot flashes are common at your age and are related to a decrease in estrogen production by your ovaries which leads to instability of the 'thermoregulatory' center of your brain. This leads to spontaneous peripheral vasodilation and the resultant 'hot flash'. At the end of your cycle, there is a drop in estrogen levels (and Progesterone levels) that leads to your cycle and can also cause these, . ...Read more

Are hot flashes and late period mean I am starting to go through menopause?

Are hot flashes and late period mean I am starting to go through menopause?

Also, thyroid disease (hyperthryoidism) can cause such symptoms as well. Some medications can cause such symptoms as well. Certain pelvic infections can do this too.

Could "cold flashes" instead of hot flashes be a sign of approaching menopause? I'm 46 and never skipped my period since I was 13.

Well, in fact - yes!: Falling estrogen levels can cause of both hot and cold flashes. The hypothalamus, the brain area responsible for body temperature regulation, becomes overactive. It releases chemicals that cause blood vessels in the skin to expand so heat can be released. The end result is a cold flash. So many possibilities for different women. Best wishes. ...Read more

Pre-menopause: Sounds like the early stages of heading towards menopause. I tell my patients that irregularity tends to be the regular thing for most people at this stage of their lives.

I having hot flashes @ 27 y/o. During the day im freezing then all of a sudden im burning up hot this most of the time not just when im on my period?

Needs evaluation: May be hormonal but may be metabolic. Possible causes include hypothalamic dysfunction, hypothyroidism, hypoglycemia, early menopausal changes etc. All of these need evaluation. If you are a heavy aerobic exerciser, you should stop. The exercise causes a compensatory decrease in thyroid function - cold and decreased estrogen production - hot. Muscle training better (slo burn method only). ...Read more
