The Human Brain & How It Changes At Menopause

the brain

Your brain is phenomenal. It’s actually the cornerstone of your life because they govern everything you do – how you think, feel, act and interact with others. The brain is also what shapes your personality.

And your brain changes during menopause.

According to the amazingly innovative brain-body Amen Clinics in the United States when your brain works right, you work right.

“When your brain is troubled, you are much more likely to have trouble in your life,” they say. “With a healthy brain, you are happier, physically healthier (because you make better decisions), wealthier (also due to better decision-making), have better relationships and are more successful in everything you do. When your brain is unhealthy, for whatever reason (brain injuries, drug abuse, obesity, sleep apnea, mould toxicity, etc.), you are sadder, sicker, poorer, and less successful. The good news is, you can change your brain and change your life.”

How The Brain Is Made Up:

  • It weighs about 1.3 kgs.
  • It’s the texture of jelly or egg whites.
  • Its composition is 80 per cent water.
  • The brain is estimated to be about 60 per cent fat (making it the fattest organ).
  • The skull is very hard to protect the brain, but the bony ridges inside the skull can cause damage when the head gets hit.

This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.


Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
