Effects on memory

Menopause does not cause you to lose your memory.

However, changes in sleep pattern, tiredness, depression and anxiety can cause you to become forgetful and may impair your mental functioning.

What can help?

  • Make lists of things that are important to remember.
  • Stay mentally active—try a crossword, Sudoku or quizzes.
  • Keep a brief diary of appointments and things to do and check it regularly.
  • Regular exercise can help improve your sleep patterns and your mood.
  • Explain to your family and friends what is happening to you so they can help and give you support.
