Menopause Hot Flashes

Every woman goes through Menopause Hot Flashes .But the symptoms that come with it like Menopause Hot Flashes vary greatly from person to person.When side effects strike, and how long they last, seem arbitrary and impossible to predict – some start early, some start late, some last two years, some last 15.However, a new study has outlined four distinct categories that all women supposedly fit into based on their race, weight, and dietary habits. The research by the University of Pittsburgh has been hailed as a breakthrough which could have a dramatic impact on the way Menopause Hot Flashes symptoms – known as vasomotor symptoms – are treated. Most women get vasomotor symptoms, and we used to think these symptoms lasted from three to five years, right around the time of the final menstrual period,’ senior author Rebecca Thurston, professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh, said.’

We now know that these symptoms persist for far longer – typically seven to 10 years – and occur at different times for different women. ‘This is strong evidence that we need to further investigate the underlying physiological causes of vasomotor symptoms and their link to potentially preventable health conditions.’Menopause, when a woman stops menstruating, typically occurs at some point between the ages of 45 and 55.The experience is linked to Menopause Hot Flashes and night sweats caused by sudden flushes of heat.These symptoms are the result of a decrease in estrogen and progesterone produced by the ovaries.Other symptoms include vaginal dryness, mood swings, and insomnia. For the study, published in Menopause, the team followed 1,455 women enrolled in the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN) who were yet to start menopause.
