According to the National Sleep Foundation, more than 60% of post-menopausal women report insomnia symptoms. The hot flashes associated with menopause can also result in diminished sleep quality.
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much in the way of advice to combat post-menopausal insomnia. Hormone Replacement Therapy might help, but it comes with side-effects and potential health risks.
To be honest, we were surprised to see so little advice when compared to the number of reports linking menopause with insomnia. One aim of our community is to fill this gap - our site will help insomnia sufferers share tips and advice as well as offer support. In the meantime, please share your thoughts/advice/experience/recommendations using our comments form below.
Our favorite product for insomnia related to menopause is MellowPause - a 100% safe, non-addictive natural herbal formula that helps to maintain healthy sleep patterns.
