Menopause Night Sweats

Menopause night sweats are exactly what they sound like: excessive sweating in the night as a result of menopause hot flashes that occur when you’re asleep. They are the most well-known cause of night sweats in women. While I know some women who celebrate the natural passing of their menstrual cycle, I also know we all must face the consequences of these changes in our bodies, and quite often, they’re just not any fun.

However, when you decide to address causes of excessive sweating, I suggest seeing a medical professional for advice. While your sweating while sleeping is most likely nothing to be too concerned about, it is still a good idea to have your doctor evaluate you to be certain nothing more serious is occurring within your body. Sometimes simply changing your medication regiment can provide you significant relief, and other times an underlying condition may need to be addressed.
