I have had hot flashes for the last six months and Estroven Cool Nights has been my miracle. I did not see a rapid change when I started taking them but by the second box, I had gone from 15 to 20 hot flashes to 1 or 2 a day.

I started having small flare-ups of pustular psoriasis in college on my palms and sides of my feet. It continued for many years. I truly believe that the cause was using an antiperspirant, perhaps an allergic reaction to aluminum in it. When I discontinued using an antiperspirant, and used a simple deodorant, and drank more water, there was significant improvement. I really believe that the acid content in my perspiration or a reaction to the aluminum in the antiperspirant was the cause of my pustular psoriasis. When you block the armpits from perspiring, there is an increase of perspiration on the palms and feet. I decided to increase my water intake as well, and since that time, I have had great results.

Surprisingly exercise stops my hot and cold flushes and they don't recur during the rest of the day. I have always done a lot of sport; mainly now cycling, badminton, and mountain walking, and I thought that this would aggravate hot flushes but it was exactly the opposite. On the first bike ride (about 3 hours) the hot flushes stopped in the first 30 minutes and I didn't have any more for the rest of the day or evening. The same thing when I went mountain walking, we climbed 1000 m with no hot flushes. I've not seen anything written about this but it's an easy, enjoyable, and healthy way to quickly feel much better.

I am 52 and had a hysterectomy at 34. Two years ago night sweat and moodiness began. I started to take lowest dose of Premarin. It worked, but not great, and was very expensive. I just started estradiol today. I hope this works, I need some sleep.

I am a 19 years old female. I put an implant in 2014 and I have never had period ever since or bleed but today when I was urinating I saw blood in the toilet and on the tissue, and my womb is painful.

I had a hysterectomy in my 40s. A few years later I thought I had mild hot flashes for a short while. I am now 64 and really having hot flashes! I hate the depression and the weight gain. Oh, and I have absolutely no desire for sex, some kissing and hugging and I am satisfied!

My wife is 54 and had a stroke about four years ago. She has gone through menopause. Now she has no desire to be with me. I'm wondering what we can do.
