Anon - Hot flashes in women under 40 are unusual and you need to get in touch with your doctor. There are many things that could cause this. It may be nothing to worry about, but on the other hand it could be a symptom of a serious little-understood condition called primary ovarian insufficiency (POI).

Most women with POI are infertile. They’re also at risk for bone fractures and heart disease. You can learn more here: http://newsinhealth.nih.gov/issue/Jun2010/Feature2

Please let us know what you learn from your doctor. We wish the best for you.
