What is the cause of difficulty concentrating?

For women of menopausal age, the most likely cause of difficulty concentrating is a change in hormonal levels, particularly oestrogen. Oestrogen has a direct effect on the production levels of neurotransmitters in the brain which control cognitive function, namely serotonin, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine. When oestrogen levels fluctuate, the production of these important neurotransmitters fluctuates as well. This leads to typical symptoms such as memory lapses or difficulty concentrating. In addition, oestrogen helps regulate the level of blood flow to the brain. If blood flow decreases, so will a woman’s ability to concentrate.
