COVID + Menopause



  • Official comment


    Thank you both for you posts. Fatigue, and yes at times extreme, is common to experience during peri-menopause. As Jill shares in her post, fatigue can also be multi-factorial, so while your changing hormones may be influencing this there may also be other factors. When it comes to addressing fatigue with my clients a multifaceted approach works best. 

    These article provide some suggestions that can help.

    Working with a health coach through Gennev's HealthFix program can also help you find the plan that works better for managing your fatigue.

    In regards to the interaction between menopause and COVID-19 here are some more resources to take a look at.

    I'm not a doctor, but I feel more rundown too. I think it's got to do with my anxiety and nervousness with all that's happening in the world. I'm working really hard to exercise and get outside to give me energy. Also, lots of water is really helping. I'm also taking the Gennev Vitality multi-vitamin that has alot of good B12...which is helping.

    I haven't seen any information that would make us expect that having Covid would have any direct effect on ovarian function, or menopause.  However, any major physical stressor can have at least a temporary effect to prevent normal ovarian activity. There certainly is some overlap in the way many of us feel when we get sick from a virus and the way some of us are affected by dramatic ups and downs from hormone swings.
