One of the most common complaints of women going through menopause is the collection of unpleasant symptoms commonly referred to as “hot flashes.” Fortunately, menopause hormone therapy can reduce the likelihood and/or severity of hot flashes in women by replenishing key hormone supplies in the body.
Symptoms of Hot Flashes
Women may experience any or all the following symptoms during hot flashes, often as a result of specific triggers:
- A sudden and overwhelming feeling of warmth
- Rapid heartbeat
- Tingling or numb fingers
- A flushed or red face
- Abnormal perspiration particularly on the upper body
Is There Quick Relief for Hot Flashes?
First, knowing your triggers and avoiding them can limit how often hot flashes occur. Common triggers include drinking alcohol, smoking, eating spicy food, stress, and anxiety.
If a hot flash occurs, patients may find quick relief by using a cold pack, drinking ice water, and wearing comfortable light materials. However, a significant source of relief may come from medical treatment for menopause.
Menopause Hormone Therapy
Hormone therapy is the most proven method for treating hot flashes and other menopause symptoms. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses hormones from safe, natural sources that are, as the name implies, identical to those already found in the human body. Treatment is available in several forms but most often takes the form of sustained-release pellets that ensure proper dosages without the need to remember to take pills or use topical creams on a strict schedule.
