Study: Menopause and Fuzzy Thinking

Many women can draw a direct line between menopause and fuzzy thinking, but usually only after the fact. When you’re a smart, competent woman who realizes that lately you can’t remember what’s on your to-do list at work or what you promised your teen for her birthday, your first inkling of what’s going on will come when your doctor tells you you’re in perimenopause or menopause. Now a small study backs up what women have suspected for years: As our estrogen levels decrease, many of us are vulnerable to attention deficits. Sponsored by the National Institute on Aging and conducted at the University of Rochester Medical Center, the study looked at 75 women between the ages of 40 and 60 and found that most memory complaints related to thinking on the fly and to tasks needing close attention. ♀
