Brain Fog

Brain fog in menopause can look like memory lapses, difficulty focusing on tasks, a general feeling of just not being as sharp and quick as usual. We explain why we experience this and how we treat it.

Out of 300,000 respondents who have taken our Menopause Assessment:
65%
experience brain fog in menopause
79%
said that painful sex negatively affect their quality of life in a significant way
7-20
years on average that women experience brain fog

Many of us hesitate to admit to this one, afraid others will assume we’re not as capable of doing things as we’ve been in the past. The truth is, we haven’t lost our experience or wisdom or education, but a little extra support and accommodation while things are a bit fuzzy would certainly be welcome.

So what’s happening? According to neuroscientist and Gennev Health Advisor Dr. Lisa Mosconi, estrogen is a “master regulator” of the brain, and when levels decline, our brains are literally fatigued. It can take time for the brain to adapt to the new normal (and studies show it does adapt, in time). As brains are adjusting, we’d be wise to take some steps to help things along.

I've been working with Stasi for almost 18 months.  She has been fantastic and has truly helped me on my journey through this time of my life.  I'm certainly becoming a better version of myself thanks to her!
I look forward to my sessions with Katie - she is a wealth of knowledge in a variety of menopause health areas. She not only listens, she is engaged and supportive.  No matter what questions I throw at her, she always has great feedback, suggestions and has a become a crucial part of my menopause journey. I am so glad to have her as a sounding block / resource as I try to minimize and manage the overwhelming menopause emotions that are so foreign to me.
