Female Facts

The facts:

  • The average age of menopause is 51 (but that doesn’t mean you are average if you did!!).
  • The average life expectancy for American women is presently 84 years (which means you may have 33 adult years without your period! Woohoo!).
  • About half of perimenopausal women don’t experience symptoms other than irregular periods.

Hot newsflash:

  • “Hot flashes may last two to three minutes or up to 30 minutes. They may occur several times a day, or feel like they’re occurring all day! They can occur once a week, maybe never. Hot flashes may happen once or twice, or continue for up to ten years. No wonder women think they are going crazy!”


  • Common hot flash triggers: Alcohol, caffeine, diet pills, spicy food, hot food, hot tubs, saunas, hot showers, hot beds, hot rooms, hot weather, smoking.
