Postmenopausal woman image

Up to 80% of postmenopausal women experience hot flashes.
In a separate survey, 1 out of 2 postmenopausal women experiencing hot flashes reported they were moderate to severe.

Hot flashes may range from mild, to moderate, to severe. While mild hot flashes only make you feel hot, moderate hot flashes also make you sweat. Hot flashes that make you sweat and stop what you are doing may be considered severe.

Some women may suffer from more than 20 moderate to severe hot flashes a day

In fact, some women may suffer more than 20 hot flashes a day.
Hot flashes due to menopause can last from 6 months up to 13 years, averaging 2 years.

More about menopause

Some helpful facts about menopause.

Menopause is a natural stage of woman's life, during which the body undergoes many changes. Beginning at different times for different women, menopause typically starts between the ages of 40 and 58.

Menopause is reached naturally or surgically. Surgical menopause begins immediately after removal of the ovaries (either through a total hysterectomy and/or bilateral oophorectomy). The resulting estrogen loss can result in physical symptoms like moderate to severe hot flashes. Some women who have undergone surgical menopause experience these symptoms more severely than women who have gone through natural menopause.

Ask your doctor if you have questions about menopause or if you need more information about menopause.


Menopause occurs in 3 stages.

The body usually moves through these stages gradually,
except in the case of surgical menopause, which is immediate.

  • Perimenopause

    When estrogen production from the ovaries starts to fluctuate and drop.
    Typically affecting women in their forties, periods become less predictable and less frequent. Perimenopause can last for an average of 4 years, but for some women may last only a few months.

  • Menopause

    Occurs when your doctor has confirmed it and when you have not had your period for 12 straight months. The average age at which women reach menopause is 51. Estrogen levels continue to drop, which may cause natural changes in your body, like hot flashes.

  • Postmenopause

    Typically starts for women in their fifties. Hot flashes can persist, continuing for some women into their 60s and 70s.

It is important to talk to your doctor about the effects these changes may have on your body.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION AND INDICATION

Using estrogen-alone may increase your chance of getting cancer of the uterus (womb). Report any unusual vaginal bleeding right away while you are using PREMARIN. Vaginal bleeding after menopause may be a warning sign of cancer of the uterus (womb). Your healthcare provider should check any unusual vaginal bleeding to find out the cause.

Do not use estrogens with or without progestins to prevent heart disease, heart attacks, strokes or dementia (decline in brain function).

Using estrogen-alone may increase your chances of getting strokes or blood clots. Using estrogens with progestins may increase your chances of getting heart attacks, strokes, breast cancer, or blood clots.

Using estrogens, with or without progestins, may increase your chance of getting dementia, based on a study of women 65 years of age or older.

Estrogens should be used at the lowest dose possible, only for as long as needed. You and your healthcare provider should talk regularly about whether you still need treatment.

PREMARIN should not be used if you have unusual vaginal bleeding, have or had cancer, had a stroke or heart attack, have or had blood clots or liver problems, have a bleeding disorder, are allergic to any of its ingredients, or think you may be pregnant. In general, the addition of a progestin is recommended for women with a uterus to reduce the chance of getting cancer of the uterus.

Estrogens increase the risk of gallbladder disease. Discontinue estrogen if loss of vision, pancreatitis, or liver problems occur. If you take thyroid medication, consult your healthcare provider, as use of estrogens may change the amount needed.

The most common (≥5%) side effects are abdominal pain, asthenia, pain, back pain, headache, flatulence, nausea, depression, insomnia, breast pain, endometrial hyperplasia, leucorrhea, vaginal hemorrhage, and vaginitis.
