I'm almost 23yrs old and I kinda get hot flushes before and during my period. Not as bad as my mom with menopause but still frustrating is this normal?

Yes, it is normal.: Estrogen levels drop just prior to your menses. Estrogen levels are also low during your menses. This is likely why one experiences hot flashes, similar to those in menopause, during this time of a physiologic cycle. ...Read more

Yes, very likely: Menopause can occur anytime between 45-50 years of age. So you are in the right age group. Menses/periods do become scanty and irregular over a year or two before they stop completely. Please seek help from your gynecologist, if you are being bothered by hot flashes and night sweats. ...Read more

If my girlfriend hasn't had her period for nearly 3 months, experiences nausea & vomiting, the smell of cigarette smoke makes her feel nauseous, her appetite is good one minute then bad the next and if she gets hot flushes could she be pregnant??

Sure: I would recommend a pregnancy test. If it's positive, congratulations. She would be at a good point in her pregnancy to establish care with a physician. If it's negative, she should see a gynecologist to discuss what might be causing her lack of menstrual cycles. ...Read more

Premenstrual: If these symptoms occur each and every month in conjunction with your periods, they may well be mediated by the hormonal changes in the menstrual cycle. Treatment would be symptomatic with bland, low fat, low salt diet, flat ginger ale to relieve nausea and Tylenol (acetaminophen). Discuss this with your gynecologist if you have further concerns. ...Read more

1 week after period, sore breast, specially sides, cramps in lower abdom and hot flushes, what can this be?

GYN: I certainly suggest a GYN exam with pelvic and jormonal evaluation. In premenstrual tension, these similar symtoms usually occur about 5-7 days before the menstrual cycle begins; however, your symtoms seem to be related to the aftermath of your cycle. Get examined and checked. ...Read more

Is it normal to have upset stomach, bloating, headache, gas, frequent bowel movements and excessive urination, and hot flashes, before period?

Is it normal to have upset stomach, bloating, headache, gas, frequent bowel movements and excessive urination, and hot flashes, before period?

We hope not: That does sound like more than annoying PMS. Even if an exam determines thatit is all PMS, it's a severe type and you can find help from an OBGYN. Have an exam and discover what's going on. That's too bad to just allow it to go on and on w/out putting up a fight. I hope it's an easy win. ...Read more

I am 24 I have endometriosis and for the past few month my periods are really light hot flushes menopause early am so scared?

Have been off zoladex (goserelin) for 8 mths, after having it for 2 yrs. Got my periods back, but still get hot flushes. Am suffering from anxiety. Is it withdrawal?

Have been off zoladex (goserelin) for 8 mths, after having it for 2 yrs. Got my periods back, but still get hot flushes. Am suffering from anxiety. Is it withdrawal?

Doubt it is withdraw: If your periods are back to normal, then your hormonal balance should also be back to normal and there should not be anymore hot flashes. So look for other causes
? Anxiety, but your gynecologist or pcp can check you and find a solution for you. ...Read more

I'm 31 have 4 kids I have had irregular periods for 18 months keep having hot flushes and mood swings why is this?

I'm 31 have 4 kids I have had irregular periods for 18 months keep having hot flushes and mood swings why is this?

Difficult: You r under stress and the question is whether the hot flashes r related to ov. Hormones. Your periods are irregular which means your cycles are irregular but it's likely not menopause, your too young. You could get on the ocp to regulate the hormones but my guess is that that won't do it. The thyroid or anemia could be it. Do you sleep well? Crying spells? Panic attacks? I think anxiety. ...Read more

Is it dangerous to use progesterone cream while taking the progestogen-only pill? I use the cream for hot flushes and the pill for painful periods

Not dangerous: You can take both at the same time but the Progesterone cream will not help you with the hot flashes. Also the Progesterone only pills have some limitations/side effects. If there are no contraindication to take bcp that contain estrogen those birth control pills might be a better option. ...Read more

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

Is it true that if you have hot flashes during puberty you will get your period really soon?

Is it true that if you have hot flashes during puberty you will get your period really soon?

Timing of puberty: I do not know your age but there are many pediatric texts which show the various stages of sexual development, characterized as Tanner 1 to 5, along with the usual external signs at different stages. You also ask your Mom when she had her first menses as these things are under genetic control and she gave you half of your genes. If she is not available to you one of her relatives might know. ...Read more
