super flasher

(名詞) 更年期前後及停經期間連續好多年都有潮熱 (hot flashes) 現象的婦女。

And then there are the “super flashers.” This unlucky group includes one in four midlife women. The super flasher begins to experience hot flashes relatively early in life, similar to the early onset group. But her symptoms continue well past menopause, like those in the late onset group. Her symptoms can last 15 years or more.
—Tara Parker-Pope, “Meet the Super Flasher,” The New York Times, July 25, 2016

Think all hot flashes are created equal? Think again. According to results released from the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation (SWAN), some women are “early onset” and have hot flashes which end at menopause. Meanwhile, others are “late onset” and don’t get hot flashes until after their last period. The study also found that one in four midlife women are “super flashers” — who have hot flashes before, during and perhaps years after menopause.
