Night sweats

Does menopause have you in a sweat?

The link between menopause and night sweats

As a woman ages, the number of follicles in her ovaries decrease and they produce fewer hormones. Menopause occurs when the ovaries fail to produce enough hormones to stimulate the monthly growth of the endometrium, and menstrual periods stop permanently. The average age of menopause is 51 years, although this can vary widely.

Women experience a variety of symptoms due to the hormonal changes associated with menopause, including hot flushes and night sweats.

What are the symptoms of night sweats?

About 70 to 80 percent of menopausal women experience night sweats and, as the name suggests, they can lead to drenched bedclothes and disturbed sleep. It is incorrect to think of night sweats as a separate menopause symptom – it is a night-time manifestation of the hot flushes and sweats experienced during the day.

Because night sweats happen while women are sleeping, or not able to actively do anything about them, they become more noticeable. They are not only embarrassing but also disturb your sleep and perhaps that of your partner.

As with hot flushes, women will experience menopausal night sweats and excessive sweating in different ways. Some suffer night sweats quite severely, whereas others don't appear to be bothered by excessive sweating or night sweats at all.

Night sweats, as with hot flushes, are extremely unpredictable. Some women will experience night sweats as their main or only menopausal symptom, while others will find it is one of a whole host of other symptoms. There is no particular time of night in which night sweats occur. In practice, however, they are more likely to happen if your bedroom is too warm, which can sometimes lead to marital differences!

The number of sweats suffered each night is variable and often unpredictable. Hot flushes and sweats can also be accompanied by feelings of nausea, dizziness or a general feeling of being unwell. As hot flushes and sweating during menopause can be such prominent symptoms, and frequently occur together, many women going through menopause use the terms 'hot flushes' and 'menopausal sweats' interchangeably.

8 ways to treat night sweats

As menopause symptoms can be so wide-ranging, the best way to prepare for them is to look at all lifestyle aspects:

  1. Reduce your bedroom temperature by opening a window, using a fan, or cooler bedding.
  2. Avoid caffeine, red wine or hot drinks at night.
  3. Avoid chocolate, refined or spicy foods.
  4. Reduce, or preferably stop, smoking.
  5. Eat a well-balanced, wholesome diet and don't miss meals.
  6. Drink plenty of water. This will help to hydrate you and alleviate night sweats.
  7. Take regular exercise.
  8. Try chill pillows. Cooler pillows to lay your head on at night might be helpful.

As impactful as they can be, menopausal symptoms don't have to create a disastrous time for women. If reduced hormone levels are causing unpleasant symptoms, treatments such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or even Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapies can be very effective. HRT and other types of medication can also be used to prevent health problems, for example, if a woman has a significantly increased risk of developing osteoporosis.

However, if you are not a candidate for HRT, or simply prefer a natural alternative, there are other options available in the form of herbal supplements. These can help re-balance your system and overcome estrogen dominance, which can have a negative impact on both your weight and sex drive.
