Arousal Trumps Hot Flashes?

cube1067November 22, 2010

IMO, my hot flashes dissipate when I am $exually aroused. I have not seen any write-ups on this, but I have been tracking myself, and so far it appears true.

The reverse is true also; when I have NO $exual desire my flashes are much more pronounced and frequent.

The arousal I am speaking of is "thoughts" of sex, not the actual "act". Mental $exual stimulation.

Wondering if anyone else can speak to this. This is amazing me and I am wondering why I do not see much talk of this on menopause sites.

I am 52 and definitely peri-menopausal. Menses stopped for 5 months, started for 7 months, now have stopped again for 2 months. Flashing had gotten so bad for me that I bought some Remifemen. I am unmarried, but now have 2 younger male lovers , old boyfriends who returned to the scene. I find that thoughts of satisfying $Sex, thoughts of fun $sex, seem to minimize my flashes. I do not take the Remifemen. I am back to sleeping under the bedcovers, without a fan. I actually had my space heater on all night! What a change from sleeping naked, on top of the bedcovers, with an oscillating fan on!

Hi Cube,

Just read your post regarding the hot flashes. Certainly an interesting write up presented. My question to you - are you taking any natural supplements or it is just the reason of Sexual desire that is leading to reduction in sexual desire.

I have been taking Xenesis EP from the last 30 days and the results are great but with that i am also engaged in regular sexual activities.

The question after reading your post is that i asked myself is if it is Xenesis EP or the Sexual Desires that is resulting in reduction in Hot Flashes?

Your thoughts please?
