First, let me tell you why it is important that you try to stay away from taking prescription medicine. Other women including myself have taken prescription medicine and have experienced horrible side effects. And this was medicine that my personal doctor prescribed, but it wasn’t his fault. Every woman’s body is different and you do not know what ingredient in that medication could trigger something in your body in a bad way.
Keep your bedroom cooler at night. This may seem obvious or your husband or boyfriend may not appreciate it, but hey…men don’t suffer with these flashes like us, so they should understand. And if he doesn’t, just put him on the couch. Also, you can make your cushion cooler to lie your head on. During the daytime, use fans and wear light clothing made of natural fibers like cotton.

Women generally don’t even think about menopause until they see other women going through it. They may notice a woman who is sweating all the time, or one who suddenly begins to gain weight. Women may complain about lack of sleep or night sweats, or feeling depressed. These are all symptoms of menopause. Taking care of these symptoms, including hot flashes treatment, is imperative in order for a woman to get through menopause with as little discomfort and embarrassment as possible.
Some things you can do to prevent bad flashes is to wear your clothing in layers so you can peel off one layer at a time. In addition, try not to wear synthetic, silk, or wool. Also, try to avoid wearing turtlenecks and wear open neck shirts.
