At SONutrition, we recognise that ADHD presents differently in women, especially during important life stages such as perimenopause and menopause. Studies indicate that hormonal changes during these periods can significantly affect ADHD symptoms, worsening difficulties in executive function and emotional regulation.

 The Influence of Hormonal Changes on ADHD


Hormonal fluctuations play a vital role in how ADHD appears in women. Throughout perimenopause and menopause, the body undergoes significant hormonal shifts, including decreases in oestrogen and progesterone levels, as well as fluctuating levels of luteinising hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone. These changes can intensify existing ADHD symptoms or even introduce new ones, making it more challenging for women to handle daily tasks and emotional stability.



 Perimenopause: A Time of Transition

Perimenopause, the period leading up to menopause, is often characterised by fluctuating hormone levels that can create new challenges for women with ADHD.
In a survey conducted by ADDITUDE magazine involving 5,000 women, 63% reported that ADHD had the greatest impact on their lives during perimenopause.
More than 93% noticed a difference in the severity of their ADHD symptoms, with over half describing these symptoms as life-altering.




 Menopause: The Ongoing Challenge

As women reach menopause, the difficulties continue. The decrease in oestrogen and progesterone can further worsen ADHD symptoms, making it harder to manage daily responsibilities and emotional well-being. Many women report that their ADHD symptoms peak during this time, with executive function and emotional regulation becoming increasingly difficult to manage.
