The Effects of Menopause on the Brain

Brain Fog

Reports of women feeling as though they cannot think as quickly and clearly during menopause have been increasing in recent years. Scientists are not yet clear on why or how this happens, but anecdotal evidence suggests it does. Some research has suggested that hormone replacement therapy can reverse brain fog in women going through menopause

Mood Swings

Some women will experience mood swings throughout menopause, and some won’t. There has not been any solid evidence that explains who will and will not experience mood swings, however doctors have made some suggestions. They believe that if a woman has a history of mental illness, high levels of stress, or is in poor physical health, she may be more susceptible to mood swings.

Anxiety

The fluctuation of oestrogen and progesterone that happens during menopause can lead to increased anxiety, or even panic attacks. It is highly likely that after menopause, when hormone levels have evened out, that the anxious feelings will subside once again. Consulting a doctor or psychologist may be helpful if you suffer from symptoms of anxiety during menopause.
