Each day, approximately 4,000 womenin the United States enter menopause. This stage of a woman's life is mostoften associated with hot flashes, but insomnia is just as common. In fact,many women report that they find sleep problems more troubling than hotflashes and other menopause symptoms. This problem is compounded by the factthat approximately 30 percent fewer women take Hormone Therapy (HT) today thana few years ago. As a result, more women deal with insomnia, hot flashes,night sweats, and other symptoms that interfere with a good night's rest.
