Brain Fog During Menopause

From the Menopause and Hormones Articles List

Woman wondering if brain fog is real?Is brain fog real?


This is a great question. Many women suffer from brain fog—memory loss, lack of concentration, etc.—and many of those women's complaints are shrugged off as a side effect of anesthesia.

Anesthesia is known to cause brain fog, but it usually only lasts for a few months after surgery. If you are experiencing prolonged brain fog after your surgery, it may be related to menopause, specifically a lack of estrogen.

Estrogen is well-known for its role in sexual behavior, but researchers have recently discovered its effects on cognition. They have detected estrogen receptors in many regions of the brain that are involved in cognition, learning, and memory. Thus, if your body is short on estrogen, the shortage may be interfering with these mental processes.

If this is the case, talk to your healthcare provider about estrogen replacement therapy. There are many options available that should help clear your fog.
