Hot Flushes
Hi

I'm only 22 and already have hot flushes for up to 3 times a day. It can last between 30min and 3 hours. It feels like I'm blushing in my face while the rest of my body is (very) cold. I'm not on any contraceptives at the moment, because I've tried them all and nothing works for me, from the loop to the injection. All of them only prolonged my period or made me have it several months on end.

PLease let me know if there is any medication I can take to make it better, it's starting to feel like I have a feever all the time.

You need a diagnosis. I would suggest that you have your thyroid levels checked as well as the female hormone levels. You could also have an infection of some sort causing a fever, so a general check-up would be a good idea.

Best wishes
