One of the things DW does is turn up the ceiling fan full blast. I feel like I'm sleeping under a helicopter.

Drink ice cold water. It doesn't prevent it but it helps a lot once you have a hot flash coming on.

The blue dot is really a representation of a 800cc saline breast implant.

Apparently you're not currently cohabiting with a woman of this demographic.

Because if you were, by now you'd be sincerely regretting your membership in our gender...

I've always wondered how Victoria's Secret and Maidenform made those metric/size conversions! Some of life's most important details just can't easily be found in a reference manual...

Ok, the first one hurt, now I think it's time to walk away from the dot............far away.

Glad I didn't give any advice in this thread, I better just stick to trying to invest my $5.87 Canadian.

Re: Question for the ladies over 40

If its not to late to reply to the OP - I was taking estrogen (birth control w/o a "week off" break) which helped a lot. Due to risk of stroke I quit that. I bought some black cohash (herbal remedy) but haven't tried it yet, as I have not had too many problems yet.

I usually just throw off the covers and open the window. And whine alot.

Re: Question for the ladies over 40

cube_rat, I use Womens Balance Cream-Natural Progesterone by Kokoro. I buy it at Whole Foods. I have tried the soy tablets, they didn't work well for me. The cream hasn't totally elemented the hot flashes but it has reduced them quite abit. The part I was having trouble living with was the feeling of either anxiety or nausea minutes or seconds before a hot flash. The cream has stopped those feelings.

I have also found that when I'm in Mexico, where its a hotter climate I really don't notice them, and there are fans all over the place so that helps .

I drink water right after a hot flash. I have had to cut down on my wine drinking
I also switched from coffee to tea. Lots of green tea.
