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

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.

Will I need hormones after menopause? I have heard so much both pro and con about using hormones after menopause. I don't know what to think. How do I know what is best for me? .

Research: Only you can decide what's best for you! I am very much in favor of using hormones as soon as the body stops making them. I believe strongly that the benefits outweigh the risks for most women. The hormones should be bioidentical and the estrogen should be transdermal. Keep reading and asking questions. You are on the right track!
