I'm 56 and fortunate to be very healthy, but still haven't gone through menopause (think I'm getting close). This week is bad for the hot flashes, because the weather is heating up, it's my daughter's graduation and lots of activities with family and friends. So, I have perimenopause, hot weather, stress, fatigue ... all of which trigger flashes for me. But, most of the time, mine haven't been too bad. I credit that to exercise and luck!
