How long after the hot flashes start?

I'm 42 and I've always had horrible, frequent, heavy, painful periods. I use natural progesterone cream to help, which has been a godsend, but for the last few months I've been getting hot flashes. Does this mean the end is in sight? How long am I likely to have the hot flashes before the periods go away?

Hi, I started having hot flashes at 50, my periods stopped about the same time....but guess what? I am 64 and still having hot flashes. When will it end?

RE: How long after the hot flashes start?

Thanks for that Susie! There's hope that the horrid painful periods will disappear soon then. For now the hot flashes aren't too bothersome. I see each one as a step closer to not having any more periods.

If I'm still having them when I'm 64 I might have changed my mind though... ;-)
