I don't think that AD's will prevent hot flashes. I am at that stage in my life where I get them. I get warm all over, hot actually. And I am always warm. But I have gotten use to it. It isn't as bad as it was. So far anyway. I use to take hormones for perimenopause. But then I had to have a surgery on my left breast so the doctor right away took me off of them as they can cause breast cancer. Mine was microcalcification and benign. So I was lucky.
It sounds like what happened to you was kind of a freak thing. Kind of a coincidence that it all happened at the same time. I wouldn't worry too much about
it. As long as the doctor isn't worried. These things can happen. There is no set rules especially when it comes to hormones. I liked taking them when I did. Kept my monthly cycle regular like birth control pills do. And they made me feel pretty good.
I hope that you have a good evening and that you are feeling well. Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
