Poor Sleep / Insomnia

Do you find it hard to fall asleep? Are you waking up several times during the night? Are you feeling tired throughout the day?

There are lots of reasons that sleep can be affected during menopause. Usual life worries, night sweats and reduced estrogen levels can all impact your ability to gain a good night's sleep. Melatonin (the chemical that regulates sleep) can be affected by changing estrogen and progesterone levels.

Making changes to your sleep habits and bedtime routine can help, as can adjusting the room temperature. Many women find taking HRT really aids their sleep.
