    Menopause and Mood, Dr Azmy Birdi, GP

    Impaired memory and concentration are common symptoms experienced by women during the menopause transition.

    The menopausal decline of oestrogen contributes to disrupted sleep by causing menopausal symptoms from hot flushes and sweats (vasomotor symptoms) to anxiety and depressed mood; anxiety leading to difficulty getting to sleep, and depression leading to non-restorative sleep and early morning wakening.

    A growing body of evidence suggests that oestrogen has an important role in cognitive functioning, specifically in memory, with lowered levels of circulating oestrogen being associated with impaired performance. Oestrogen ma have a direct and specific effect on memory as receptors are found throughout the central nervous system, including areas of the brain known to have an important role in memory. It may also have a number of indirect actions on memory through its influence on activity in neurotransmitters which are implicated in mood and arousal.

    The menopause is a time in a woman’s life when it is recognised that biological and social changes can impact upon mental wellbeing. Several studies have investigated the relationship between menopause and psychological symptoms, especially depression, with mixed results.

    Dr Birdi is a Menopause Specialist and will give an evidence based overview on the effects of menopause on cognition and mood, as well as the role of HRT in management of symptoms.
