Hot flashes are some of the most common and disruptive symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. But what are hot flashes, and what causes them? Let’s take a look at the facts.
Hot flashes are sudden rushes of heat that cause your skin to become red and hot. They can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes and can occur during the day or night. They can be mild or intense, and they can leave you feeling flushed and uncomfortable.
So what causes hot flashes?
Researchers believe that they are due to changing hormone levels during menopause and perimenopause. As your body adjusts to the new levels of hormones, it can cause your temperature to fluctuate, which causes the hot flashes.
