Are you tired of waking up in the middle of the night to soaked sheets? Tired of having to wake up your partner to change the sheets in the middle of the night? Night sweats can feel gross and be kind of embarrassing, but you don’t have to just put up with them. There are several things you can do to make night sweats few and far between, if not gone for good. Here are some options.
Turn down the thermostat.
It is easy to add or remove layers, but if your home is too warm it is definitely going to contribute to night sweats. Turning down the thermostat before you go to bed is a great way to make sure it isn’t too warm in the house. Sometimes if you wake up sweating just being able to expose yourself to the cooler air of the house can stop a hot flash in its tracks.
Put a box fan next to your bed.
Putting a fan next to your bed is also a good idea. As soon as you start getting too warm and start waking up, you can reach over and flip the fan on. Being able to have such a set up can help you get more sleep, stopping night sweats before they really get going.
Taking hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone replacements are the only surefire way to prevent and stop night sweats before the end of menopause. With bioidentical hormone therapy, you can balance your body naturally so that night sweats, and all of your other perimenopuase symptoms, are stopped.
