Menopause made easy and comfortable
A hot flash begins as a sensation of intense warmth in the upper body, followed by skin redness (flushing) and perspiration. Typically, these symptoms begin in the head and spread downward toward the neck and chest.
Hot flashes impact 85% of women aged 40+
Hot flashes occur with varying frequencies ranging from a few flashes per week to several flashes an hour. Some hot flashes pass after a few seconds, while a few last for more than 10 minutes. On average, hot flashes last for around 4 minutes.
Once a woman reaches menopause, she may continue to have hot flashes for 6 months to 5 years. In some women, they may even linger for 10 years or longer according to the North American Menopause Society (NAMS)
