Concerns & treatments
Brain fog is a very common symptom of perimenopause and menopause. Two of the main hormones, estrogen, and testosterone, play an important role in cognition and memory. When the levels of these hormones begin to fall during perimenopause and menopause, this can lead to a range of cognitive symptoms including memory loss, difficulty staying focused, word-finding difficulties, losing your train of thought, and getting confused easily.
Did you know that the hormone, estrogen, is responsible for stimulating the brain, keeping neurons firing, supporting the growth of new cells, and helping existing cells to form new connections? When a woman experiences a sudden decrease in estrogen during and before menopause, her entire body –including her brain– goes into what is referred to as a “sudden deprivation state”.
While the process of menopause and the symptoms that come with it are natural and unavoidable, we want all women to know that these symptoms are treatable and no reason to put their life on hold and panic.
