Understanding and Dealing with Hot Flashes

Two of the most common complaints about menopause are hot flashes and night sweats. This uncomfortable symptom affects approximately three-quarters of all women in perimenopause (the time before actual menopause). Once a woman has reached menopause, she may continue to have hot flashes for 6 months to 5 years, and in some women, they may linger for 10 years or even longer, according to the North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

What is a Hot Flash?

A hot flash is a feeling of intense heat, not caused by external sources. Hot flashes can appear suddenly, or you may feel them coming on. You may experience:

  • tingling in your fingers

  • your heart beating faster than usual

  • your skin feeling warm, suddenly

  • sweating, especially in the upper body

  • your face getting red or flushed

 Things you need to know About Hot Flashes:


1. How Long do they last?

Hot flashes often come on suddenly, but how long any single hot flash lasts will vary. Some hot flashes pass after a few seconds, while a long hot flash may go on for more than 10 minutes. On average, hot flashes last about four minutes.

The frequency of hot flashes also varies. Some women experience a few hot flashes per week, while others may have several an hour. Depending where you are in perimenopause, that can change.
