Night sweats and hot flashes: menopause and other causes

Causes of night sweats: 

As we have said, night sweats are the result of hormonal imbalances that can have different causes: 

  • Menopause is the primary cause of hot flashes: a sudden sensation of intense heat followed by palpitations, chills, profuse sweating, and a feeling of dizziness;
  • Pregnancy is also a time of life when night sweats can occur; 
  • Hyperthyroidism and endocrine pathologies are the other common causes of hormonal disruption.

Hot flashes and menopause

Hot flashes and night sweats begin to cause uncomfortable nights in wet sheets for most women between the ages of 45 and 55 due to menopause. In fact, the average age of menopause is between 48 and 52. 

However, many women experience what is called pre-menopause. This is a period when menstrual cycles become irregular but women continue to menstruate. Menopausal symptoms, including night sweats and hot flashes, begin to appear: 

  • vaginal dryness;
  • urinary disorders: urinary leakage, frequent urination, regular urinary infections;
  • fatigue sometimes accompanied by headaches;
  • sleep disorders: insomnia, night wakings;
  • mood disorder: irritability, anxiety ; 
  • joint pains. 

During menopause, hot flashes occur mostly at night and disturb sleep. 

The day of the situations are favorable: 

  • ambient heat ;
  • eating a heavy or spicy meal;
  • alcohol consumption;
  • physical exercise ; 
  • emotions.
