Alleviating Hot Flashes: Women & Infants Offers Program for Menopausal Women

Friday, May 21, 2010

 
Mention the word menopause to most women who are going through it and they are likely to start talking about hot flashes. Not a pleasant conversation, but it's a common bond between women who are menopausal. Up to 80% of American women of menopausal age report experiencing hot flashes.
 

The range of symptoms is broad but many women speak of a sudden, intense, hot feeling on their face and upper body, often accompanied by a rapid heartbeat and sweating, nausea, dizziness, anxiety, headache, weakness, or a feeling of suffocation. There is often an "aura" that gives warning that a hot flash is coming.
 
How to alleviate the wide range of menopause symptoms is a frequently asked question. On June 2, the director of the Center for Reproduction and Infertility at Women & Infants Hospital, Dr. Sandra Carson, will present “Take Down the Heat of Hot Flashes” at Temple Sinai in Cranston.
 
“Women who are in menopause are often at the pinnacle of their professional careers. Imagine standing in front of a board room, a classroom, or a meeting, knowing that a hot flash is coming. It’s embarrassing, and it leaves many women feeling out of control,” explained Dr. Carson.
 
Dr. Carson will discuss some of the lifestyle changes that may help women to calm their hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms. She will also address the use of estrogen therapy, including one of the newest ways to receive estrogen therapy, Evamist, a low-dose estrogen spray that reduces moderate to severe hot flashes in menopausal women.
 
The program will be held on Wednesday, June 2nd at 7:30 pm. Temple Sinai is located at 30 Hagen Avenue, Cranston. For information on the event, call (401) 942-8350.
