Why hot flashes during menopause are such a major nuisance
Hot flashes are more than just a temporary discomfort. They can lead to Sleep disordersmood swings and reduced quality of life. Because hot flashes can occur at any time and literally make you sweat. The feeling of heat spreads in waves from the head towards the upper body. Also Palpitations or dizziness are possible.

In addition to the purely physical discomfort, there is also the feeling of losing control over your own body. The sudden urgent need to take off clothes or turn on the fan causes strong feelings of insecurity and anxiety in those affected.
Hot flashes are particularly strong at night, the constant feeling of heat is not only unpleasant, but often leads to sleep disturbances and exhaustion.
Hot flashes and sweating at night during menopause
One of the most common complaints of menopause is hot flashes, often accompanied by night sweats. The multiple sweaty awakenings during the night last from a few seconds to a few minutes. Nighttime is especially prone to hot flashes because when estrogen levels drop, stress hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline rise. Your body is led to believe that you are in a stressful situation. As a result, your pulse rate skyrockets, your heart pumps like crazy and you break out in a sweat. The resulting sweat leads to subsequent shivering due to evaporative cooling. It is important to understand that hot flashes during menopause are the body's natural response to declining estrogen levels. It is a period of transition that requires time and patience. Fortunately, there are several steps women can take to mitigate the effects of hot flashes. You can find them further below in the article.
How long do hot flashes last during menopause?

Menopause is a transformative time when your body is adjusting to new hormonal conditions.

What hormone is missing in menopausal hot flashes?
The phrase that a hormone is missing originates from the earlier misconception. It was assumed that women after menopause lived permanently in a kind of hormonal deficiency state and consequently the "missing" hormones should be replaced by years of hormone replacement therapy. This theory has been disproved nowadays. The end of fertility has its biological meaning and protects older women from pregnancy, for example. A Hormone therapyas it is used today over a short period of time is therefore also not a "natural substitute", but a drug treatment whose benefits and harms must be weighed against each other.
Hot flashes during menopause are an effect of falling estrogen levels in the body. Estrogen is an important female sex hormone that is involved in many bodily functions, including the regulation of body temperature. Due to the falling production of estrogen during menopause, there is an imbalance in hormone balance. This imbalance can cause hot flashes and other symptoms associated with menopause. It is important to know: It is not just the absolute lack of estrogen, but the fluctuations and imbalances in hormone levels that can lead to hot flashes. The exact mechanisms of how estrogen deficiency leads to hot flashes have not yet been fully explored by science. It is thought to affect the temperature regulation center in the brain, leading to excessive sensitivity to heat. This can lead to sudden and intense hot flashes, accompanied by sweating and an uncomfortable feeling of heat in the body.
How does hormone therapy for symptoms of menopause work and is it right for me?
Hormone therapy (HT) is a treatment option used to relieve the symptoms of menopause. It is based on supplementing or balancing hormones, particularly estrogen and/or progesterone, which decrease during menopause. Hormone therapy can be administered in the form of tablets, patches, gels, creams or sprays.
Hormone therapy can provide several benefits against menopausal symptoms, including relief from hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, vaginal dryness and mood swings.
...hormone therapy can also protect against osteoporosis (bone loss)?
Estrogen has a positive influence on bone metabolism and can reduce the risk of bone fractures. Consequently, hormone replacement therapy is also recommended, for example, in combination with progestogens for the prevention of osteoporosis when other drugs are not suitable.
NoteBefore you decide on hormone therapy, it is important to consider the advantages and disadvantages as well as the individual risks and benefits. Menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes are often not severe enough to require treatment in most women. If symptoms are severe, short-term hormone therapy may help. Hormone therapy is not suitable for every woman. There are certain contraindications, such as a history of breast cancer, liver disease, or blood clots, that may prevent hormone therapy. Every body is individual. If you have severe symptoms, you should first talk to your doctor about your specific situation and medical history. This will help you weigh the pros and cons and make an informed decision.
Important to knowHormone therapy is not a contraceptive method, because ovulation is not suppressed. You should also discuss whether hormone therapy can be combined with your contraceptive method with your doctor.
...you should use contraception for another year after menopause, because the activity of the ovaries can change strongly?
If menstruation does not occur before the age of 50, up to two more years of contraception are recommended. However, protection against HIV and other sexually transmitted infections remains an issue.
There are also many alternative treatments to hormone therapy that can also be considered.
