Many causes: True hot flashes are most common in menopause, yet the average age for that is 51. There are rare cases of premature menopause and a simple blood test and menstrual history can determine that. A more likely cause in a younger women is thyroid disorder (hyperthyroid) which again can be checked with blood test. A good exam and a few blood values will likely give you an answer.

Evaluation: While heat sensitivity could be constitutional hot flashes are not a normal occurrence at your age group. It could be due to different reasons such as thyroid dysfunction, premature ovarian failure, hematologist disorder etc. I would highly recommend that you see your pcp for an evaluation, the sooner he better. It is possible that all tests will come back normal but an evaluation is important.

Can I be in menopause and still get my period? I have a lot of the symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, and breast soreness, but I still get my period. Could I be going through early menopause? I am 44 years old..

Yes,: Yes, that is a very good question. It is somewhat early, but women age 44-45 can definitely start getting peri-menopausal symptoms. The average age of menopause is 54 but some women do go through it earlier. Some women have peri-menopause for several years before menstruation ceases.

If: If there is any possibility of pregnancy, then you need to take a pregnancy test. Another possibility would be an ovarian cyst or a urinary tract infection or stone. If the pain is persistent, if you have vomiting, fever, or worsening pain, then you need to be seen as an emergency.

What causes hot flashes when I'm 17 years old?

Hot Flashes: If your concern is that you are going through menopause at the age of 17, please rest assured that this is extremely unlikely. The incidence of premature menopause in adolescents is extremely low. As for why you are feeling "hot flashes" at the age of 17...There is a huge list of things that may increase your basal temperature, please see your pediatric physician for possible evaluation/bloodwork.

Hi, I'm 20 years old and started getting hot flashes, fatigue, migraines, spotting and cramps. Could my ovaries be failing?

Hi, I'm 20 years old and started getting hot flashes, fatigue, migraines, spotting and cramps. Could my ovaries be failing?

Very unlikely: It would be rare for a woman to go through ovarian failure at your age. I suspect it could be due to other causes such as hormonal fluctuations, or pms. Take ibuprofen for pain and plenty of hydration. If symptoms persist, see GYN Best Wishes Dr M

I m 55 years old with a FSH of 6 (4 weeks ago) but I am getting hot flashes daily now. Am I anyway near menopause?

Yes: Just the fact that you are 55 means you are likely very near menopause. Fsh levels may not be elevated if you are still getting your period. An fsh level can be normal one month and high the next, especially if you miss your period.

Hi I was 24 years old when I had a full hysterectomy. I was wondering what I can do for hot flashes and night sweats?

HRT: I know you've read horrible things about hormone replacement therapy - but you've endured this for 4 years, and you've probably tried all the herbal nonsense without success. Your gynecologist can prescribe a hormone replacement regimen that will lessen your symptoms considerably with minimum risk.
