Hot Flashes - May 28th 2012, 09:09 PM

I was on the pill for several years and I started to have hot flashes. I assumed it was because I was very bad at taking it and my body was withdrawing from the estrogen. (because the main cause of estrogen is the body withdrawing from estrogen.) I recently got on depo provera instead and the hot flashes went away for a while but they are back again. I don't know if they are caused by the fact that I have major, hardcore anxiety or if it's something much more serious. Does anybody else have input on this?

I suffer from hot flashes, as well. Though doctors do not know why since I am not going through menopause...at least I hope I'm not yet! lol

There isn't really a reason unless you are going through menopause, so most doctors just tell you to put a cold cloth on the back of your neck when you feel one. It does help, actually.

Also, sitting in front of a fan. And sometimes taking Ibuprofen/Advil helps me.
