Nearly all women at some point in their lives will suffer from hot flushes, most commonly during pregnancy or the menopause.
During pregnancy you’re likely to feel warmer than you usually do. This is due to hormonal changes and an increased blood supply. You’re also likely to sweat more. Even on cool days you may feel overheated.
As your body goes through the menopause you may experience hot flushes at any time, often several times an hour. It’s not fully understood why these sweating attacks occur but it’s thought to happen as the automatic controls of the nervous system become erratic.
Whatever the cause of your hot flush, we know that they are uncomfortable, distressing and may prevent you from sleeping properly.
Medical practitioners advise women going through the menopause to make simple lifestyle changes to help them cope with the changes in their body (see NHS advice) . Wearing lighter clothing and sleeping in a cool room can help with the night sweats and hot flushes and wearing a Koolabanda cooling scarf goes one step further towards helping your body keep cool so you can get a good night’s sleep.
