I am 65 years old and started menopause when I was about 42. I had hot flashes for several years and was on hrt for about 10 years which solved the hot flash problem. Stopped taking them at my doctors recomendation after about 10 yrs. I still have "hot moments" but not the sweating and the severity is less is than during menopause. My problem or irritant. This time is that both my nipples itch constantly. They also invert when I wear a bra. I now only where camisoles. I mentioned it to my primary care dr. and she says not to worry about it. My mammograms have all been clear. Does anyone else experience this?View Thread
