In brief: Hot flashes

More than two-thirds of women experience hot flashes during perimenopause, the few years leading up to menopause that can start as early as your 30s.
But once you hit your 50s and make the transition into menopause, hot flashes will likely last two to three years. "For some women, they can last as long as 10 years, but that is not typical. In fact, a lot of women have no hot flashes. Unfortunately, there's no way of knowing when they will stop.
