Age At Which Women Reached Menopause, Type Of Menopause Appeared To Impact Cognition In Later Ages, Study Finds
This is more information and support for the importance of estrogen in women’s health. I have said for years that estrogen is important for memory and its deficiency related to Alzheimer’s Dementia.
Here, the idea of early menopause (absence of estrogen), is associated with poorer mental health later in life. This becomes very important for endometriosis patients who on average experience menopause about 8 years before the average age of 51.4. More evidence that we should be identifying and surgically curing endometriosis in the early to mid teen years.
