What is brain fog?
Cognitive difficulties are something that occurs in 60% of women who are going through menopause. This is called brain fog.
It is a common symptom in women entering perimenopause that can continue as you enter this next phase of your life. Brain fog does not always involve memory loss, but can affect verbal learning and attention.
Estrogen and other hormones change as menopause occurs, which can change bodily functions and brain function. When naturally circulating hormones change, or are decreased, things like normal brain function and memory can be affected.
