ADHD Symptoms and Menopause / Perimenopause

The interplay between ADHD symptoms and hormonal changes during menopause and perimenopause requires coping strategies for effectively managing symptoms during this transitional phase of life.

Navigating ADHD Symptoms during Menopause and Perimenopause

Menopause and perimenopause are natural stages in a woman’s life marked by hormonal fluctuations and the cessation of menstruation.

For women with ADHD, these hormonal changes can intersect with their existing symptoms creating unique challenges. The fluctuation of oestrogen and progesterone levels can impact executive functions, mood regulation and cognitive abilities which can potentially exacerbate ADHD-related difficulties.

Managing Symptoms Effectively

Managing ADHD symptoms during menopause and perimenopause requires a personalised approach. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may be considered to help stabilise hormonal imbalances and alleviate some symptoms. Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) can provide valuable tools and strategies for managing ADHD symptoms particularly during times of hormonal flux.

Lifestyle modifications such as regular exercise, a balanced diet and stress reduction techniques can contribute to symptom management. By creating a structured daily routine, individuals can stay organised and focused despite the challenges presented by ADHD and hormonal changes.
