I am a 37 year old woman with night sweats and no sex drive. I have been to my ob-gyn and been tested for thyroid, hormones, etc. Everything has come up fine. But the night sweats continue.

I have had two children (now 6 and 4). Night sweats started about 1 year ago. Seem to get worse when I have my period. My ob-gyn changed my pill prescription from Estrostep to Portia. Night sweats continue. Had a chest x-ray - nothing. Had blood work done - all were fine, other than Estrogen being a bit low (but within the range). I am frustrated because I have gotten no where and seen my doctor twice, but the sweats continue and they are disruptive, as well as the lack of sex drive. Also, I was checked for early menopause and that came back as negative too. My doctor's last comment was this is a head scratcher. Any thoughts on what else I can do? I don't want to think that this is going to be normal.....and don't want to just give up.

Well, our bodies as individuals are not the same. I feel it could be an early sign of menopause but i guess it would stop after a while and may be on and off till you get there.
