Hot flushes

This might sound wierd but I am on HT injections every 3 months and it seems that when I get to the end of the 3 months and just before my next one (maybe 2 weeks) , the flushes become more intense 

  • That's not weird at all. I was thinking exactly the same thing. I finished after 3 years with my last injection in August and if there was a next one it would be early November and this is when mine get more frequent. I've always considered myself lucky because mine usually only last about one minuet. It hits different people in different ways.

    Good luck with your treatment.  Regards Reg 

  • Hi Echoandpurdey,

    I'm on the 6 monthly injections and the Hot Flushes are rampant.  They are mostly at night, my body seems to be on autopilot, pulling the duvet down.  Then I wake up cold and it all starts again.

    I've only had the one injection, next one due on Christmas Eve.
