Brain fog is characterized by a feeling of mental cloudiness, difficulty concentrating, forgetfulness, and a decline in cognitive function. It can affect memory, focus, and overall mental sharpness.
Brain fog is a common symptom experienced by women going through menopause AND perimenopause. Hormonal fluctuations during this time can impact cognitive function and contribute to the development of brain fog.
Approximately 60-80% of women going through menopause AND perimenopause experience brain fog. It is a prevalent symptom that can significantly affect daily functioning and quality of life.
The most effective treatments for brain fog during menopause and perimenopause may include hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to balance hormone levels. Lifestyle modifications such as regular exercise, stress reduction techniques, and a healthy diet can also support cognitive function and alleviate brain fog.
On average, approximately 70-90% of women report a reduction in brain fog symptoms after two months of starting menopause treatment, whether through HRT or lifestyle modifications.
