Good morning. Its easy to blame the menopause for everything I know! I am 56 and have only had one period over the last 15 months and blood tests confirm I am menopausal. I do have a little memory problem but the biggest worry for me is how wooly headed I get. I have done the same job for 25 years yet recently I don't seem to retain new information. I can read and have things explained and its as if a fog comes into my brain and I just cannot take things in or reason anything through. Its quite worrying! Any ideas?

Did you know?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
