My best friend has been going through this for about 2 years now… she just turned 42, so yeah, early menopause sucks.  Thankfully, like you, she’s not interested in having any more children (had her daughter at 18), but she’s struggling with the hot flashes, and inability to lose weight too.

Poise (yes… the people who brought you those awkward “I pee myself commercials”) makes a line of menopause relief products which include a cooling gel… might be worth a look.

You might also try lotion with peppermint oil.

Oh yuck….you know, Brookstone carries a dual controlled, heating/cooling mattress pad…for those ever dreaded night time “personal summers”…that thing has saved more than a few lives of ladies that I love..also, Otter Pops are an excellent option for a quick cool down, get up, grab one and stand there in the loving coolness of an open freezer, in which you have also stored a batter operated hand fan, and chill yourself out.

It gets better, hang tough lady!

Sorry to hear you’re going through this so early. I’m not sure how old you are, but my mom started at age 45. It seems that women are going through this younger and younger these days. I know that doesn’t help, but at least you know you’re not alone.

@TexasSpringBride:  Oh wow…your Fiance is either brave or stupid…I would say, “I’m going to either stand here until I cool off, or rely on the arterial spray from your neck to do the job after I rip out your larynx..your choice of course…”
