Night Sweats: The End of a Good Night’s Sleep

Waking up every night sweating is never fun. Not only are you soaked through, so is the bed. And worse, your sleep is disrupted, and getting back to sleep may be difficult. For most women, this is the most unpleasant symptom of menopause. Similar to your hot flashes during the day, night sweats are caused by your body's change in hormone levels. There are several ways to help you feel better and treat these unwelcome night visitors.


Hot Flashes That Time of the Month

If you are still menstruating regularly, it typically means you are not in menopause. One of the most common symptoms of menopause is hot flashes. But if you are having hot flashes and still have regular periods, there's got to be something wrong with you, right? Absolutely not. In fact, it is believed that up to 70 percent of pre-menopausal women experience hot flashes during their periods.


Hot Flashes in Men

Yes, men can suffer from hot flashes, too, brought on by hormonal imbalances in their bodies. Known as androgen decline, or andropause, this is the male version of menopause that women experience when their child-bearing years are done. It is estimated that more than 25 million men in the US and over 408 million men worldwide report symptoms of andropause.
