Exercise can be a hot flash buster

Jun. 6, 2013

As we grow older, our bodies begin making less of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. In perimenopause, a woman’s hormone levels change as they did during puberty, before menstruation started. You may feel these changes even more intensely than you did during puberty.

Some women keep a diary of when they have hot flashes in order to figure out what might trigger a hot flash and how to avoid it.

To relieve hot flashes during perimenopause, you can try...

→regular exercise

→biofeedback — using the mind to control body functions

→taking a cold shower during a hot flash or before bed

→decreasing your stress level

→making the temperature of your house or apartment cooler

→reducing your intake of alcohol, caffeine, hot drinks, and spicy foods

→wearing thin layers of all-cotton clothes and removing layers during hot flashes

→prescription treatments, such as hormone therapy or other medicines from your health care provider
