• Do Only White Women Get Hot Flashes?

Do white women complain more about their hot flashes than other women? Is menopause a white woman's "disease". These questions sound silly.

I only ask because the majority of studies regarding menopause have been conducted among middle aged white women. One wonders what are all the other women experiencing?

The reality is that menopause does not discriminate. If she lives long enough, she will experience menopause. The only real question is what will that experience be like.

And for me, the question becomes how best to optimize that experience for those women who need help in dealing with their symptoms.
