    During menopause our brains change, so feeling like your brain is “frying” is a common complaint. During perimenopause estrogen begins to decline, and so does oxytocin, the hormone responsible for connecting and care taking. Menopause marks a time of low estrogen and significantly diminishing progesterone, when the brain circuits that were fueled by estrogen, progesterone and oxyocin are altered.

    The good news is during POST menopause, there is more calmness because estrogen, testosterone and oxytocin are low and steady. Discuss your complaint with your clinician. There are options available, both non-hormonal and hormonal.
