Thanks to them I have not completely stopped having night sweats but the intensity has decreased so I can at least get a decent nights sleep now.

    i'm 51 and early on in the menopausal transition i had occasional hot flashes. into my 50s and they were unbearable, especially at night. Swanson's wild yam cream works incredibly well (and immediately) and i haven't had a hot flash in a year or more. super relieved!

    I have been suffering with hot flashes for several months now. Pull off my sweater, put it back on, pull it off again... so many times at work and at home. Then there's trying to sleep at night.
