Abstract

A cross-sectional study was conducted among women ages 40-60 years to assess the association between tubal sterilization and the occurrence of any, moderate/severe, or daily hot flashes. Although women with tubal sterilization were more likely to report hot flashes than were nonsterilized women, this association was largely due to differences in characteristics between the women, particularly body mass.
