Sleeping Through Menopause

[fa icon="calendar'] Oct 4, 2018 5:00:00 AM / by Isadora Guggenheim

Having trouble sleeping?

One study found that perimenopausal women between the ages of 40-59 were less likely than others in their age group to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. When it comes to postmenopausal it is quantity over quality. Postmenopausal women between the ages of 40-59 reported waking up without feeling rested, they also reported trouble falling and/or staying asleep.

Sleep measures by menopausal status in women aged 40-59
How many perimenopausal women develop insomnia? More than one-third have insomnia. Women in perimenopause have the greatest risk or 1.5 times greater chance of developing insomnia at that time. It is estimated that over 500 million women within the next decade will enter perimenopause and most will experience insomnia.


Janis L. Enzenbacher, MD has been treating perimenopausal and menopausal women for over 30 years, she is an expert in the types of hormones that are available as well as their delivery system.

She incorporates your diet history, sleep hygiene, emotional support systems, genomics and current baseline labs to get a comprehensive view for each patient.
