    If you have only one ovary left, I would guess it is not functioning as it used to. You should ask your doctor for a blood estradiol test which should be over 100, and an FSH an LH which will determine how far and if you are in menopause. I assume you are taking no estrogen replacement?

    Since you are familiar with what hot flashes feel like from the Lupron (as am I...they suck, don't they???) I think early menopause is a definite possibility. I know this thread is on the older side, but what did the doc say?

    Hot flashes?

    I wasn't sure where to put this thread, so hopefully this is okay...

    For maybe the last 3-4 weeks, I've been having crazy hot flashes...at least 10-15 per day. I have checked my temperature numerous times during the flash and I don't have a significant rise, so it's not a fever. Also, I had hot flashes years ago when I had to take lupron, so I am familiar with how they feel.

    I only have one ovary left out of my entire reproductive system, and I am really hoping that it's not failing me now! But I just have no idea what might be causing this. I haven't started or stopped any meds recently, either.

    My mom did go through early menopause, but I believe she was in her late 30s or early 40s, and I am ten years away from that, so I just don't know...

    Help! Does anyone know what could be causing this and/ or what I can do to help? I do have an appointment scheduled with a new gyn for March 22nd. I am finally having to leave my old doc (he's been my gyn pretty much since I've had a gyn) because he's about an hour and 15 minutes away, and with the IC and fibro, I really just can't stomach the drive anymore.

    Thanks in advance!
