      I don’t want to jinx anything but my hot flashes have disappeared. I’ve been dabbling with bio identical hormones for awhile and last summer and the beginning of fall were miserable. I’m not using hormones at the moment and I’m having no problems with heat. I can’t blame it on winter. Our winters are mild and our temperatures can fluctuate depending on where I am during the day. Yesterday I started out at my house which was 60 degrees and went downtown for awhile which was 85 degrees. I still had no issues with the heat even though I was wearing long sleeves.

      Could it be that I’m finished with the hot flashes?

        • since I had my ovaries removed last year, it seems as though I went through a very quick menopause (actually experienced many symptoms in the hospital)..and then it gradually subsided as the months went by...have not had a period since 2003 when I had my uterus and cervix removed...now I just deal with very dry hair, itchy skin and signs of aging..yuck!tongue out

        • Even after my hysterectomy I have had hot flashes.  I have been taking some great vitamins with an 85% absorption rate and really feel they have helped with my hot flashes.

        • This same thing happened to me too. Last year June I started having hot flashes which intensified by August. I started using Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg and then in November they disappeared, just like that! Now that I think back on this, that was the same month I met my new beau and maybe it was a psychological thing. But now they‘re back but not as much, only when I get anxious or stay out too much in the sun (we have 90+ degree weather here).
          I’m an advocate for using natural remedies for any ailment or problem. Blessings.

        • The bio-identicals really work for me as long as I’m very careful about taking them at the same time every day.  The dry, dull skin is starting to turn around and it’s been a year and a half since the total hysterectomy, so I’m hoping I’m about to be at the end of the process!

        • My ‘power surges’ take breaks on occasion which I appreciate. At one point a couple of years ago they were hitting like clock work almost every 2 hours day and night. Can y‘all say A-N-N-O-Y-I-N-G????? This past Autumn was pretty light, then they were back, only not as often this past winter. Now that Spring has sprung, they‘re coming full blast again.  

          My mother was still having flashes at 75. I do so hope mine stop long before then!
