Hot Flashes and Menopause (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Hot flashes associated with the menopausal transition are not a life-long problem and can be effectively treated in most women if necessary. About 80% of women will stop having hot flashes five years after the onset of hot flashes. Less commonly, in about 10% of women, hot flashes can persist for up to a decade.
