You Can Tame Hot Flashes—Even with Breast Cancer

by JoAnn Pinkerton | Jan 11, 2016

We're pleased to have a guest post from Dr. Andrew Kaunitz. 

Andrew M. Kaunitz, MD, FACOG, NCMP

If you are currently being treated for breast cancer or if you are a breast cancer survivor, the hot flashes can be miserable, but conventional estrogen-based hormone therapy is not an option. That doesn’t mean you have to keep living in hot flash hell. Women who have been treated for breast cancer and are suffering from menopausal symptoms have more options than previously. These include lifestyle approaches as well as effective nonhormonal medications. Want to learn what can help and what’s safe and effective? Then tune in to this new video where Dr. Marla Shapiro and I discuss the options for you. As you move forward, it makes sense to seek help from a knowledgeable clinician, and you can look for one of those here. The NAMS Certified Menopause Practitioners listed have passed a competency exam in menopause practice and keep up with menopause professional education.
