I have started taking Menoquil. Any other suggestions ? The hot flashes during the day don't appear to be as bad as at night. Always seem to wake up at 1 am. drenched! Ugh!!! Appreciate all the advice that has worked for you! Thank you!

Hi staceyrosas,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Night sweats refer to any excess sweating during the night and they are at the top of the list as one of the many symptoms of menopause or permenopause. Menoquil is an all natural menopause supplement that offers relief to associated menopausal symptoms.

How long have you been taking the Menoquil supplement? If it's only been a short time you may need to give it more time. How quickly your body responds depends on many unique factors.

Here are some suggestions I found:

  • Relax. The stress hormone cortisol may make women more sensitive to hot flashes, Omicioli says. Take some deep belly breaths when you feel
  • Exercise. Although studies haven’t been conclusive, it’s thought that regular physical exercise lowers hot flash frequency. stressed or try yoga and meditation.
  • Pay attention to potential triggers. Alcohol, caffeine, and spicy food may trigger hot flashes in some women.

I hope you get some input from the community who have similiar experiences and helpful suggestions.

Be well, ~Gillette
