I have had a complete hysterectomy. I have hot flashes and was wondering if there is any help for my hot flashes? Also, I get nausea sometimes with the hot flashes, is this normal?

    Multiple studies have documented that prescription hormone therapy (HT) with estrogen that is “systemic” (circulated throughout the body in the blood) is the most effective treatment for hot flashes available.

    If HT is not an option for you, there are non-hormonal options available: medication options (Gabapentin, antidepressants, Clonidine), lifestyle options, and alternative and complementary options (Black cohosh – Remifemin is a popular standardized brand).

    Some women get nauseous during hot flashes, we are all different. I got queasy during hot flashes because my blood sugar was not stable. I was eating tons of comfort food throwing my blood sugar off. If I was hungry during a hot flash I would feel queasy. Make sure you are eating a healthy diet and exercising, and discuss your queasy feeling during hot flashes with your doctor.

    There is no need to suffer, I hope you find a remedy that honors your medical and personal preferences.
