How many years will I have hot flashes?
If they come on in early peri-menopause or menopause, they can last up to 13 years! The later they come in the menopause process, the shorter the years you will experience the hot flashes.
What tests should I do to determine if I am in menopause?
The standard test your doctor can do to determine if you are now in menopause is the FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) blood test. If it is high, it means you are not ovulating. Being officially in menopause means you haven’t menstruated for a year and your FSH is constantly high- over 30 in most labs. Ask your physician to screen you if you suspect you are in menopause.
What are the most common symptoms of menopause?

What causes you to get hot flashes?
Medical science is not entirely clear on what, exactly, cause hot flashes when you enter menopause. We do know that once progesterone and estrogen start lowering – especially estrogen, (as they naturally do at this time of life), there is more “vascular instability”, where the blood vessels under the surface of the skin can suddenly dilate ; you turn red, feel hot, and may even sweat.
Can I get hot flashes during my period?
Yes, this is possible , especially if you are in peri-menopause. They're related to the fluctuation and decline in estrogen levels, which can narrow the range of temperatures the body can tolerate (called the thermoneutral zone). Each month can be a little different level of estrogen, so depending on your you level and your core body temperature, you can have hot flashes.
What can cause early menopause?
Long term smokers may be more prone to early menopause symptoms. Very thin women are more prone to early menopause because they don’t have the fat cells to contribute to estrogen production. Sometimes early menopause can be a sign of and underlying autoimmune disease. Possibly genetics might contribute to early menopause. Any condition that may reduce estrogen in your body can induce early menopause. Menopause can be surgically induced with a hysterectomy and /or ovary removal. 
What is peri-menopause?
Peri-menopause means "around menopause" and refers to the time before you naturally transition toward permanent infertility (menopause). You may notice changes like menstrual irregularity, sometime in your 40s, but some women notice changes as early as their mid-30s.
This is because estrogen rises and falls unevenly during peri-menopause. Your menstrual cycles may lengthen or shorten, and you may begin having menstrual cycles in which your ovaries don't release an egg (ovulate).

Can I get hot flashes when pregnant?
