Is insomnia one of the symptoms of the menopause that is affecting you? You’re not alone! Women may start to experience changes in their sleeping patterns in their 40s, and for some women these get worse as they enter perimenopause (the transition into menopause).7Santoro N. J Women’s Health (Larchmt) 2016; 25(4):332–9 Older women complain of insomnia more than any other group of people.

There is a link between disturbed sleep and hot flushes (which are called night sweats if they happen at night). The more severe a woman’s hot flushes, the more likely she is to experience insomnia.7Santoro N. J Women’s Health (Larchmt) 2016; 25(4):332–9

 

As you’ll know if you’ve experienced a night sweat, just before it starts, your body’s temperature rises, which can wake you up. Even though the flush only lasts a few minutes, it means you’re awake for this time and you may have to change night clothes. While you may not lose much sleep in terms of total time, the night sweats leave you with interrupted sleep, and the tiredness associated with that the next day.10,National Sleep Foundation.

Sleep duration and quality are important for your health and wellness,6Vahratian A. Sleep duration and quality among women aged 40–59, by menopausal status. NCHS data brief, no 286. Hyattsville, MD: National Center for Health Statistics. 2017. and continued sleep deprivation can be debilitating. It can also play a part in struggling to function properly during the day.10,National Sleep Foundation. Menopause and sleep. https://www.sleepfoundation.org/sleep-topics/menopause-and-sleep 11Jehan S, et al. Sleep Disord Ther 2015; 4(5): 1000212.  As you know if you’re in the throes of insomnia, finding a solution is essential. Many women look for alternative therapies to support them through the menopause.4,NHS. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/menopause [Accessed December 2018]. 15Menopause Matters.
