Husband: I’m not sure if I’m now having hot flushes or if I’m just being gently broiled by you all night.

Me: Yeah baby. What’s not to love? Marinated Middle Aged Meat. Mmmm!

Fluctuating hormones can play havoc with your hypothalamus – your body’s thermostat. This can lead to some women experiencing hot flushes and/or night sweats.

I say ‘some’ women but I suspect this symptom may be something that eventually affects most of us. It’s certainly the most common menopause-age-joke-really-not funny-birthday card reference. I hate those things. I also hate night sweats and hot flushes. They wake me up at stupid o’clock as I am absolutely boiling and my nightie is stuck to me. Another good reason to have separate duvets. My husband refers to it as ‘going nuclear’. As in, “Shall I snug in or is one going nuclear?”; to which the most usual reply is “Thank you for the kind offer but one is indeed going totally nuclear.”

Many women swear by a cold drink before bed but I have no desire to be dreaming of wetting myself at three a.m. Others advise the use of a fan by the bed; however, anytime I’ve used a fan I‘ve woken up with dry eyes and a blocked up nose. This may be as I don’t keep a clean enough house and the fan is simply blowing weeks’ worth of dust around the bedroom. They also make my stiff neck feel even stiffer as I tense up as a result of all the cold air blowing on me. Give it a go though – it may work for you in your clean house.

We do not all experience our time in Hell Gorge in the same way. Not all of us have all of the symptoms. But we do know that the aches and pains, the insomnia, the itchy skin, the mood swings, the brain fog, the digestive issues, the burning mouth, the dry eyes, the rage, the loss of libido, the hot flushes, the night sweats and the epic wind are merely the result of our fluctuating hormones.

What Happens After Menopause?

For many women, these changes in menopause are deep and far-reaching. The realization that you have been holding yourself up to impossible standards is profoundly liberating. You allow yourself to do your best on any given day.
