Hot flashes

09/06/2007

Question:

I am 56 I had a hysterectomy 20yrs ago But I had my ovaries taken out 6yrs ago. I was on tamoxifen for 5yrs and have been off of it for 2yrs. I am now having hot flashes and mood swing again. Am I going thru menopause again and what can I do to help the hot flashes. Thanks

Answer:

It would be unusual for hot flashes to start up again at this point in time. Check with your physician about other causes and potential medication side effects.
