This is another one of those posts you don’t need to read if you don’t know me personally, but which I’m sharing on the off chance that it might be beneficial to other women who have to go through the same thing.

The general theme of this post is “surgically-induced menopause sucks” (punctuated, if you will, by Brian Blessed in Flash Gordon bellowing “WHAT A DAMN NUISANCE!”). Medical things about my girl parts behind the fold.

Mine are milder than that and more erratic but then again i still have all my original parts. Are you open to acupuncture at all? I have found i seem to better with it for stuff my body theoretically COULD regulate but chooses not to (eg acid reflux).

Good luck, bleah.

This is no immediate help, but I passed through menopause a while back and I discovered that the early hot flashes are the worst. They ease off after that. (Though, of course, every person is different.)

I'm advocating lycanthropy, but then I want that for me too. :-(

For me, a hot flash often comes when I need to go to the bathroom. The pressure building up down there seems to start it. Going to the bathroom quickly enough heads it off or relieves it quickly. Even just getting up and walking around, especially putting on a coat while walking, may release enough gas to end it.

Just sympathy to offer. These will eventually end, won't they?
