Why do symptoms of menopause come and go unexpectedly? I also use HRT but the symptoms still persists but not as bad as they could be without HRT. The unexpected flushing, sweating etc are vert frustrating.

Hello, FourEyedLady. Thank you for posting.

The body begins to undergo several changes (over time) in response to lower levels of:
follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
luteinizing hormone (LH)

This can cause what many women say is the up and down, come and go symptoms. Hormonal fluctuations. It's happened to me also!

Most women first notice the frequency of their period becoming less consistent, as the flow becomes heavier and longer. This usually occurs at some point in the mid-to-late 40s. By the age of 52 ( this age can vary) most U.S. women have undergone menopause.
