Smoking makes menopause misery

by Margery Gass | Sep 19, 2012
There are so many reasons smoking is bad for you, but did you know it contributes to menopause misery? Here are reasons to quit now:
  • Smoking brings on menopause faster—as much as 2 years earlier in heavier smokers
  • Women smokers are more likely to have hot flashes more frequently and more severely than nonsmokers
At and after menopause, your risks of other conditions rises, and smoking increases the risk even more, including:
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Breast cancer
  • Diabetes
But there’s good news:
  • Quitting smoking before menopause may delay menopause
  • Quitting cuts your risk of death, no matter how old you are when you quit
