Why do I still have hot flashes? I'm well into my 60s!

The duration and severity of menopausal symptoms can vary widely from individual to individual.  Some women may experience few or even no recognizable hot flashes, whereas others may continue to experience them for decades. While most women will have a significant reduction in their hot flashes after 3-7 years of more pronounced symptoms, it is impossible to predict when or if one's symptoms may stop altogether.
