The research consisted of following a group of approximately 400 women ages 30-40+ who had not yet hit menopause at the start of the study in 1995. Over the next 13 years, the researchers interviewed the women each year to ask them questions about their health, including menopause symptoms. Only 55 of the women were completely free of hot flashes. Ninety of the women said they only had mild flashes, and the remaining 259 women reported moderate to severe hot flashes.

So, more women suffer with hot flashes than is generally thought? I am among that majority, going on 13 years. Took HRT for 4 years because I was desperate for sleep, then paid for that with breast cancer later. Ironically, the Tamoxifen (to reduce breast cancer recurrence) made the hot flashes worse. Worse!

Menopause is God's cruel joke on women.
