I don't get hot flashes during the day, so why do I get so hot at night?

Estrogen is the hormone responsible for regulating body temperature. Estrogen levels are at their lowest in a woman's body around 2am, hence the night sweats. However, drinking alcohol at night can increase feeling hot during the night and can interrupt sleep patterns.
