Hot flashes and night sweats, known as vasomotor symptoms (VMS), are some of the most recognizable symptoms of menopause. Both involve intense feelings of overheating and can be very disruptive and distressing. Hot flashes do not always involve sweating and can occur at any time, while night sweats involve repeated episodes of heavy sweating particularly during sleep. Different racial and ethnic groups have varied experiences with hot flashes/night sweats, with Black women, for example, at greater risk of experiencing them, and for a longer number of years.

In this Menopause Talk, Dr. Jewel Kling and Dr. Denise Millstine will explore how hot flashes and night sweats can severely impact our sleep, mood, work life, and even our future health. With far-reaching impacts, we cannot just “suffer through them,” and should not have to!  Fortunately, we now have many options for treating VSM. Join us to learn more about these options and have your questions answered.
