Some women also find that a variety of coping strategies or lifestyle changes can help them get through hot flashes. Examples of some of the strategies you can try include:

  • Moving to a cool area when a hot flash starts
  • Sleeping with a fan on if hot flashes occur at night
  • Drinking a cool liquid when a hot flash starts
  • Losing weight (if you are overweight).
