Sleep difficulties and insomnia are a common problem among women during menopause due to hormonal fluctuations, hot flashes and night sweats which commonly interfere with a restful night’s sleep.
According to a recent study, disturbed sleep is present in 40-70% of women in the menopausal transition. Results of the study concluded that women with insomnia, compared with controls, had higher levels of psychological, somatic, vasomotor symptoms. They also had higher scores on the depression inventory, shorter sleep duration, and lower sleep efficiency.
