Patients and methods: This trial was a single center randomized controlled clinical trial designed as single blinded and parallel groups with an allocation ratio of 1:1 (DHEA group: placebo group). Women in the intervention group (DHEA group) were given DHEA in a dose of 50 mg orally for 4 months; whereas, women in the placebo group were given placebo tablets for 4 months. The Patients enrolled were from various regions of Adiwaniyah Province, Iraq visiting Adiwaniyah Pediatric and Maternity Teaching Hospital during the period from January 2022 through January 2023.
Results: In post and peri-menopausal females, and in all enrolled women, we reported no difference that is statically matter in mean frequencies of host flushes and night sweat in the placebo groups; however, there was significant reduction in mean frequencies of host flushes and night sweat after treatment in the interventional groups with baseline state (p< 0.001).
