Will any over the counter product help hot flashes? Help!

Seventeen days ago I had my uterus, ovaries, tubes and cervix removed. I had already gone through a horrible menopause. I had been controlling hot flashes for a long time with Activella. Each time I would stop taking it, the hot flashes were so severe that my quality of life was extremely affected. Of course, since my surgery I have not been taking the Activella. The hot flashes started a few days ago and seem to get worse each day. I am going to the Bahamas with my son and his family on the 27th of this month. I am terrified that the hot flashes will ruin my trip. Has anyone had success with an over the counter product?

I will greatly appreciate any help!!

Black Cohosh may help with hot flashes. It can take some time to work though. Sometimes up to 6-8 weeks. Talk with your doctor before taking anything.

Kim, he wants me to wait several weeks and see what happens before he puts me on anything. He told me to try any over the counter products.

Thank you!

I have tried a supplement for menopause called Menopace, which is mainly a vitamin and mineral supplement.
I also saw a programme recommending a diet based round Soy products like Tofu, chick peas and plant based oestrogen.
I have been making porridge with Soya milk substitute each day, and have not noticed much difference. The woman in the programme had been following a more full diet and said that it had made a big difference for her.
Cutting out caffeinne and alcohol was important too.
Best of luck, and enjoy your holiday
