Cognitive Issues Caused by Early Menopause

Fibro Daily January 21, 2013

The article Surgical Menopause Causes Memory Decline talks about new research presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 65th Annual Meeting in regards to early surgical menopause and cognitive ability. According to this research, women who have undergone early surgical menopause may experience a decline in memory and thinking skills. Early surgical menopause occurs in a surgery called oophorectomy. In oophorectomy, the ovaries are removed because of certain medical issues like vaginal bleeding or uterine and ovarian cancers.

However, women that take extensive hormonal replacement after the surgery don’t seem to suffer from this type of cognitive problem as much as those who don’t take extensive hormonal replacement.

The article also sparks the question of how fibromyalgia women who underwent oophorectomy deal with cognitive issues caused by early menopause in addition to fibro fog.

If you suspect that you suffer from any of these cognitive issues, speak to your doctor if you haven’t already sought help.
