Menopause Fact Sheet #1: Hot Flushes

Menopause Fact Sheet #1: Hot Flushes

October 2016

Menopause is a normal stage of life, but this doesn’t stop many women feeling embarrassed when they go through it.

The average age for Irish women is between 48 – 55 years.

This Fact Sheet focuses mainly on Hot Flushes, because when we see menopausal women in our three Well Woman clinics, most of them tell us this is the symptom which most concerns them.

We’ll be releasing more online Menopause Fact Sheets shortly, on Sleep Disorders and on Contraception in the Peri-Menopause. We welcome suggestions from patients as to other aspects of the Menopause also.
