Hot Flashes

Some background first. I am 22, 23 in April, and am on Lo/Ovral birth control pills. I have tried different types of BCP, and have even tried the Nuva Ring (which was a horrible decision because of mood swings and unable to function in a day to day setting, plus yeast infections).

I have always had bad hot flashes. I know it's normal to get them with your period, but I still feel really young, and feel that it's too much.

I wake up multiple times a night from hot flashes. During the day, I have at least 4 or 5 a day the week of my placebo pills, plus maybe a day before and after.

Is there something I can do to lessen these symptoms? Is this something I should get checked out?
