About hot flashes

Back to the top

Hot flashes are characterized by a perception of a sudden spike in your body’s temperature, most noticeably in the face, neck, and chest. Hot flashes may be accompanied by flushing (a blushing or reddening of the skin in these areas), increased heart rate, and tingling in your fingers. Sometimes hot flashes occur at night, disrupting sleep. These episodes are known as night sweats. Night sweats and hot flashes are the two most common symptoms of menopause.

Hot flashes occur when the blood vessels near the surface of the skin expand to help you cool off. They are normally the result of hormonal changes as a result of menopause but are sometimes (though rarely) caused by other factors, such as medications, thyroid problems, or certain types of cancer.

The symptoms, frequency, and intensity of hot flashes vary among women. As many as 2 in 10 women never experience hot flashes, while others may have them for 10 years or longer. For most women, however, this period will last between 6 months and 5 years. Individual episodes may vary as well. Some may pass after a few seconds, while others may persist for 10 minutes or more. On average, though, hot flashes last about 4 minutes.
