Vanishing Menopause "brain fog" is real, study finds

Those memory lapses many women notice around menopause are real, and they can begin at a relatively young age, researchers report.

It’s common for women going through menopause to complain of what researchers sometimes call “brain fog” — forgetfulness, and difficulty concentrating and thinking clearly.

Glasses

I call these lapses brain farts.

I haven't had a period since August, 2012. Then again, in September 2012, the surgeon removed the organs necessary to have periods. One of the best medical decisions I've ever made.
