I've started having night sweats and have realised that my duvet is making me much too hot. I need to get something much lighter and seem to remember people recommending a particular kind, possibly wool? Have I completely imagined that some people find it helps and any tips on getting the correct one please?
Best results for me were : Two single duvets so DH could have 15 togs to my 5. A cotton sheet under my duvet, partly to absorb sweat and partly so I didn't freeze when I threw off the duvet. Polly always advocates HRT but it's not everyone's choice.
I bought a very expensive silk duvet from a recommendation on here but I don't rate it at all. It's very heavy and not got that fluffy cloud feeling that's so lovely! Most importantly though, it doesn't regulate my temperature and so was a big waste of money for me. Knicker magnate and sage tablets work for me.

I throw it in as a suggestion . Reason being is that the medical stats show it's safe and even beneficial for overall health for almost all women up to the age of 60 at least. new scientific evidence out last week showed reduction in mortality and better heart health for women using HRT. Only 10% of women use HRT but that's down partly to the bad press it had for ages, based on outdated research.
HRT, before that I had a sheet, a duvet or sometimes just a bed throw and they were on and off all night. I also had this weird kind of low grade all over body buzzing like I was attached to a low voltage electric fence. It was horrible.
I personally would not bother with a duvet, id go for nice cotton sheets and a nice bedspread for when needed. ive gotten a fan at the side of my bed carefully positioned so my hubby does not freeze... good luck
And for bloody good reason. have a read of Nick Panay's or Professor Studd's websites. If you are under 50, the resists of not having sufficient oestrogen are osteoporosis and heart problems. With topical rather than oral hrt the risks of breast and other cancers is about the same as the general populations - I.e. No increased risk
I can't understand why people will try this and that, when they are obviously suffering. You wouldn't not take blood pressure tablets or vitamins for a deficiency. This is exactly the same.
