In brief: Hot flashes

The most common complaints of women approaching menopause are related to cycle irregularity and hot flashes.
Other common problems relate to decreased estrogen levels, such as vaginal dryness and recurrent vaginal infections. At the age of 22, you appear to have a long ways to go before this occurs. The average age of menopause is 51-52.
