Hot Flashes for How Many Years?

I am a 63 year old woman who is still experiencing frequent (several times a day) hot flashes. This has been occurring since I entered menopause, (no periods for over a year), almost 11 years ago.  Is this normal?? It's disrupting my life more often now it seems.  I dress in layers and avoid spicy, hot foods.  Any other suggestions.
Thank you for your ideas,
Barb

Maybe you should get a hormone panel done. I was low in progesterone and I have been using natural projesterone cream. As a matter of fact I read that it is good for all women to use once their menstrual stops. It builds bone too.
